An exhaustive and revealing biography
of Britain's new monarch, King Charles III, with fresh reporting by the
journalist the Wall Street Journal dubbed "the Godfather of royal
With exclusive interviews and extensive research, King Charles delivers
definitive insight into the extraordinary life of His Royal Highness, former Prince
of Wales, as he takes the throne, a watershed moment in modern history and in
the British monarchy.
New York Times bestselling author Robert Jobson debunks the myths about
the man who became king, going beyond banal, bogus media caricatures of Charles
to tell his true story. Jobson--who has spent nearly thirty years chronicling
the House of Windsor, and has met Charles on countless occasions--received
unprecedented cooperation from Clarence House, what was the Prince's office, in
writing this illuminating biography.
King Charles divulges the full range of Charles's profoundly held
political beliefs: the United Kingdom's special relationship to the United
States, climate change, Brexit, and immigration--to ultimately portray the kind
of monarch Charles III will be. Jobson taps a number of sources close to the now-King
who have never spoken on the record before, plus members of the Royal Household
who have served Charles during his decades of public life.
This comprehensive profile also reveals the late Queen Elizabeth's plans to
transition Charles to the throne; how at her insistence he already reads all
government briefings; and why he feels it is his constitutional duty to relay
his thoughts to ministers in his controversial "black spider memos." Moreover, King
Charles reveals the truth about Charles's deeply loving but occasionally
volatile relationship with his second wife and chief supporter, Camilla.
The result is an intriguing new portrait of a man who at last has become king.
