Prince Charles’ controversial biography ‘Rebel Prince’ is vicious according to two presenters.
Tom Bower’s unauthorized book “Rebel Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles” reveals a number of surprising details about the Prince of Wales. However, some doubt about the integrity of the publication.
“Bower’s tome is just a vicious confection of tittle-tattle that is almost completely unattributable,” Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan wrote for Express.
“Nothing new emerges from this nasty book and most of the negative comments from wholly anonymous courtiers could simply have been made up,” the pair continued. “I know royals must expect to be gossiped about and that salacious and sensational ‘revelations’ make some writers a lot of money.”
The couple dubbed as Richard and Judy object to Bower’s book. For them, it causes a collateral damage to the innocent family members like Prince William and Prince Harry who “deserve our kindest wishes for their happiness at this crucial stage of their lives.”
Prince Harry’s royal wedding with Meghan Markle is only a few weeks away. Meanwhile, the Duke of Cambridge is expecting his third baby with Kate Middleton.
Ryan and Judy added that the two princes have gone through a deep trauma and still emerge as “likeable and responsible young men.” The last thing they need is facing the old gossip that has plagued their father.
The former “This Morning” hosts added that the Prince and Princess of Wales had a disastrous marriage, but Prince Charles was not the only one to blame as “neither of them behaved particularly well.”
Prince Charles’ relationship with Camilla, while he was still married to Prince William and Prince Harry’s mom, was given. But Princess Diana had her own affairs too.
In related news, Bower claimed that Queen Elizabeth did not approve the Duke of Cornwall’s relationship with Camilla. In fact, there was a time when the queen didn’t want to see the Duchess at any royal function or even talk about her.
In addition, the investigative author also wrote that the monarch and Prince Philip are not confident with Prince Charles’ leadership skills. In fact, the Duke of Edinburgh reportedly joked that they want to live longer so the next-in-line to the throne, Prince Charles, will have a short reign and will “have little opportunity to damage the monarchy.”
Bower appeared on “Good Morning Britain” and had an interview with Susanna Reid. The latter asked him if his book was a product of “hearsay.” “No. I have spoken to people who were very close to him,” Bower answered.
