Sally Bedell Smith, dogged biographer and author of Prince Charles: The Passions and Paradoxes of an Improbable Life, out this week from Penguin Random House, has collected an exhaustive file of facts about the future king of England. Unlike his mother, Charles is not what you might call a beloved figure. And while Bedell Smith doesn't spare the touchy-feely, parapsychology loving, Dumbo-eared Charles, her portrait is also rich with sympathy, even affection.
Bullied as a youth by his overbearing father (Philip was the original alpha male, Smith says), Charles spent his whole life seeking approval. Cowed by a sense of duty and fearful of even minor mistakes, the well-intentioned, protocol-loving Charles married Diana because his father said he should. No matter that he may have been in love with Camilla Parker Bowlesshe didn't pass muster.

Bullied as a youth by his overbearing father (Philip was the original alpha male, Smith says), Charles spent his whole life seeking approval. Cowed by a sense of duty and fearful of even minor mistakes, the well-intentioned, protocol-loving Charles married Diana because his father said he should.
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth, Baron Greenwich, his father, is a true alpha male. He is still strong at 95 years old.
He was a handsome man when he was younger.
Charles and his mum, her heir-apparent.
Worst prince ever.
Girls hearts and dreams world wide destroyed by gutless girly man “Charles”
We can look forward to King Chuck. What a f’ng idiot. I don’t care myself, but what kind of a brain dead lib do the Brits want?
Isn’t it time to put these people out to pasture or banish them to Australia
His sister, Her Royal Highness Princess Anne, Princess Royal, is seen as more stronger. Oh well.
None of our business.
Dumbo and his faithful steed Camilla.
PRINCE CHARLES IS A CLOSET MUSLIM
God Save the Queen.....we mean it, man!
Mom should outlive them Chuck. Hopefully the boys (William particularly) see how messed up he is and decide to not be a clone of the baby booming SJW father.
But who knows? Maybe the millennial mindset has infected them too.
I think of Elizabeth as one of the last living representations of what Britain was in their Finest Hour. I think of Charles as representing the degraded shell of what the country has become.
Charles, this is your father. Step aside you worthless git.
Never pass on the Top Job.
“Isnt it time to put these people out to pasture or banish them to Australia.”
Better yet, the Falklands.
Philip was a beaming father when Charles was born, but he probably became disappointed in his actions.
None of our business.
Also, who cares or gives a tinker’s damn!
What does he have other than a bully pulpit? All the business is carried out by underlings today. The monarch can’t make a single thing stop or go.
