At the age of 70, when most people are slowing down, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is working harder than ever and is set to spend the rest of her days in the media spotlight.

In marrying the Prince of Wales in 2005, and becoming his 'darling wife', this hitherto private and self-effacing mother of two became the second most senior female member of the British Royal Family. She gave him the love and support he had always craved; she made him laugh again; made him a happier, more confident man. But in so doing she also made sacrifices. She gave up the freedom she had always taken for granted. She signed up to a future of public engagements, ceremonies, receptions, overseas tours and charitable work that would exhaust women half her age. And when in due course Charles becomes king, she will support him, as the Duke of Edinburgh has supported the Queen, and serve alongside him representing Britain and the monarchy at home and abroad.

Diana called her a 'Rottweiler', a marriage wrecker. She was the third person in the marriage. She was vilified and reviled, followed, photographed and publicly humiliated, while her family and children were thrust unwillingly into the limelight. Most people would have walked away, but she stuck by the Prince and lifted him out of the despair of his failed marriage.

Spend two minutes with Camilla and you understand what Charles sees in her; why he gave up his beautiful young wife for her. Why he went against his mother and risked everything, even the stability of the monarchy, to have her by his side. She is strong, warm, friendly and funny, with a mischievous twinkle in her eye. This is her story, which has never been fully told before. It is a compelling tale of human frailty, love, loss and great sadness, but also, ultimately, great happiness and fulfilment.
