King Charles III: A Biography

Anthony Holden, Author George Weidenfeld & Nicholson $0 (242p) ISBN 978-1-55584-309-0
In Charles, Prince of Wales , British journalist Holden recorded the life of the heir to the throne from his birth in 1948 to age 30, where this sequel begins. Stylishly presented and informed, the text induces one to share the author's respect and sympathy for the prince. At 40, Charles is visibly and volubly involved in plans for improving conditions in the realm, defying those who object to his ``interference.'' Holden describes marital troubles that have made the prince graver, less outgoing, as the international media feature gossip about Princess Di's wandering eye. There is so much of absorbing interest in events effectively covered here that readers will want to wish the best of luck to a good man, the future King Charles III. Photos not seen by PW. (Mar.)
