Prince Charles

The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life

Sally Bedell Smith

Groomed for a role that has never materialized, Prince Charles's unique life has been marked by frustration, from a lonely childhood and unhappy school life to the indignity of press mockery of his sincerely held opinions and public pronouncements. Researched with access to palace officials, friends and hundreds of primary sources this biography discusses his life and attitudes, including the saga of his marriage to Diana Spencer and his current status as the oldest heir-apparent in British history. American-cut pages.
