Queen Camilla is just as funny as its predecessor The Queen and I, if you are looking for a satirical and fun read this certainly is one. Graham visits Charles and Camilla; the whole family takes an instant dislike to him - particularly after he claims that he, not Prince William, is second in line to the throne after Charles. His sister takes up with a local handyman. The Fez is the private fiefdom of scaffolding magnate Arthur Grice, 's employer. All those years ago when a Republican party won th For me the name Sue Townsend will always be synonymous with the Adrian Mole stories, they are what have most helped make her Britain's favourite comic author today.
When Graham, the 40-year-old love-child of Charles and Camilla reappears and makes a bid for the crown, the Queen is less than pleased…. I didn't think it would be a satirical novel that would give me impetus to feel a bit of sympathy for Camilla. Unfortunately this book is nowhere nearly as good as the first.

There are some great scenes in here. In the first book the Republicans came to power in England and the entire Royal Family was banished to live out their lives on a Council estate.
At times I was amused and as usual I enjoyed Sue Townsend's dry humour, but I don't think I enjoyed it anywhere near as much as the Adrian Mole series. However, when Christopher makes a horrifying discovery whilst out walking his dog on the heath he finds that he is compelled to confront Angela about the past. From United Kingdom to U.

And the characters fate is rather surprising until you realize that we've been made aware of how manipulative politicians are since they are first introduced in the book. Book is in Used-Good condition. In fact it was all i could do to plough my way through it.
