Sally Bedell Smith Upcoming Prince Charles Biography set for April 2017 release date

http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/b...dsor/18538341/

Sally Bedell Smith, who is the author of biographies of both the queen and Diana, next planned project is what is being pitched as the "first full biography of the Prince for twenty years". Coming on the heels of Catherine Mayer's study, this should be interesting.

The article posted is about Catherine Mayers book but Smiths volume is mentioned toward the bottom. I found out about this most exciting development via the Goodreads app.

Oh good! Her bios are typically very well sourced and researched

I will be interested to see what Bedell Smith's take on Charles. The man seems to be the royal equivalent of a Roarshach test - often the authors view of C says more about themselves.

I think that's true with many royal figures honestly.

I always use Anne Boelyn as an example of how history changes depending on the perspective of the teller- and Anne's story has always been heavily influenced in its telling by the perspective the writer has on women.
