A Greater Love: Prince Charles's Twenty-Year Affair with Camilla Parker Bowles

Christopher Wilson, Author William Morrow & Company $22 (223p) ISBN 978-0-688-13808-0
Wilson, another of the ubiquitous Fleet Street journalists, here retells the all too familiar Charles and Di story. By including a few more comments than usual about Camilla Parker Bowles, he seeks to convince readers that this is a different tale. It isn't. Bowles and her husband, Andrew, have stoically plodded on through endless speculation and media stakeouts. She has kept her own counsel, and no matter how Wilson tries to stretch every reference to the ``other woman'' in Prince Charles's life, she retains a kind of tweedy anonymity that is hard not to admire. Wilson does trot out a good deal of circumstantial evidence to document a long-standing relationship, but when he recounts a telephone conversation that the prince had while in the bath, one does question how he knows about it. No matter. The facts speak for themselves: Diana and Charles are separated, Charles is still friendly with Camilla Parker Bowles, and this scenario would be banal if his last name weren't Windsor.
