Anthony Holden:
Charles at Fifty - hardcover

ISBN: 0375501754

[SR: 6849334], Hardcover, [EAN: 9780375501753], Random House, Random House, Book, [PU: Random House], 1998-10-27, Random House, Charles, Prince of Wales, turns fifty on November 14, 1998. Since the tragic death of Princess Diana, his public and private lives have been in more turmoil than ever. Britain's leading authority on the prince is Anthony Holden, who has written two previous biographies of Charles. The first, published when Charles was thirty, was a number one bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic; the second, published ten years later, caused huge public controversy for suggesting--four years before Andrew Morton's book--that the Waleses' marriage was in trouble.         Now Holden continues this unique series with a third, even more dramatic portrait of the ever-changing prince. Holden's first book was a portrait of a lonely, confused bachelor still living at home with his parents; his second was about a driven but still troubled man, the father of two sons, trapped in an unhappy marriage and losing public goodwill. His third book presents a divorced prince, now a widower, facing a stark choice: his children, the love of his life or the throne--or, by trying to have all three, playing a dangerous long-term game that could threaten the future of the monarchy itself.         The tragic triangular love story of Charles, Diana and Camilla has never before been told in such compelling detail. Once close to Charles, and later to Diana, Holden is uniquely placed to present both sides of their marital argument. Offering unparalleled insights into the dramatic events of the last decade, Holden traces the seeds of Charles's adult character in his childhood and youth but does not flinch from criticism in recounting how Charles reached his current dilemma as a single parent in love with a woman he may never be able to marry. Though Diana's death has created a wave of public sympathy for him--which may yet see him a popular king--can the private Charles ever find happiness without the help and support of the woman he loves?, Every 10 years, Anthony Holden writes a biography of Prince Charles, and they keep getting better as Charles's life gets worse. When Charles quit talking to Holden, Diana opened up. "Why must the British pride themselves so on their emotional restraint?" she asked Holden. "Look what it's done to Charles: he's an emotional cripple. It's not his fault, it was the way he was brought up." Holden tells the whole story of what one source calls "the most unnatural ... and loathsome family since Manson's," though he mostly blames Charles's emotionally AWOL mother and harsh father, and he coolly assesses Diana's calculating, actressy side. Holden shows how they assaulted each other via journalists: Andrew Morton's Diana: Her True Story being answered the next day with a Di-bashing by Penny Junor (whose 1998 book Charles: Victim or Villain? is said to bash Di posthumously). Holden offers delightful one-stop gossip shopping for dirt on the sordid, sometimes funny royal soap opera. Did you know Camilla, Charles's true love, is descended from Charles's ancestor's tootsie, known as "La Favorita" and described as "the most perfect mistress in the history of royal infidelity"? Or that Camilla's alleged line with Charles was, "My great-grandmother was your great-great-grandfather's mistress--so how about it?" Besides Diana's sorrow, consider Charles's second-most-beloved mistress, "Kanga," who withered away and died after Camilla lured Charles away for lifelong al fresco sex. Holden says a cache of Kanga's letters may spark another scandal. Perhaps we'll read them in Holden's Charles at 60. --Tim Appelo , 2399, Royalty, 2396, Leaders & Notable People, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9332123011, Great Britain, 4948, England, 4974, Scotland, 4982, Wales, 4935, Europe, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
