From the cover: Can the British monarchy survive beyond the reign of the present Queen? After the extraordinary series of crises which marked Elizabeth IIs annus horribilis, 1993 began with the embattled House of Windsor in even worse disarray. Following his separation from his popular wife, Prince Charless prospects of inheriting the throne have been further compromised by the revelations of the Camillagate tape. As the Queen begins to pay taxes, many hard-pressed Britons still consider the monarchys wealth disproportionate to the times. Can Charles ever become King? What does the long-term future hold for Diana, Princess of Wales? Should the British monarchy surrender its post-imperial splendour for the humbler style of the bicycle kings of Scandinavia?

No-one is more qualified to answer these questions than Anthony Holden, Britains leading royal commentator for more than a decade. His bestselling biography of the Prince of Wales, published in 1988 to a mixture of acclaim and controversy, was hailed by The Times as definitive. Recent events have also proved it remarkably prophetic. Renowned for the shrewdness of his insights, the accuracy of his reporting and the reliability of his judgements, Holden argues that the monarchy must change to survive. He traces the collapse of the family monarchy, the true extent of the Queens wealth, and the changing associations between crown, church and parliament. Holden also analyses the failure of four royal marriages, throwing new light on relations between the royals and those they have wed. He examines the role of British institutions from the press to Downing Street in the monarchys current plight, and looks ahead to the twenty-first century. Will Charles step aside in favour of his son William? Or will Britain become a republic with an elected president?

In this important, authoritative and revealing book, Anthony Holden makes a major contribution to the national debate on the future of the constitutional monarchy.
