Prince Charles is not a happy man right now. Actually, he’s never a happy man, but he’s especially upset due to a recent tell-all book in the works. See, there have been countless tell-all books about the royal family, but this one is special. According to reports, Charles’ former aid and one of the infamous ‘men in grey’, Dickie Arbiter, is writing a tell-all. And Charles is MAD.
Technically, Dickie was the ex-press secretary, and he stood by Charles’ side throughout everything: his marriage to Princess Diana, his affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles, and his divorce to Diana. He knew all of Charles’ deepest and darkest secrets, because Charles was stupid enough to trust him with all that information. To be fair, Charles probably does feel blindsided by the betrayal, but just in case you didn’t already get that, a palace source released a statement saying, “Charles is furious. This man was a trusted friend.”
Dickie here will become the first Buckingham Palace inside man to spill the gossip on the royals, which means that this tell-all is already an instant bestseller. Plus, the royals can’t really sue for libel unless Dickie makes things up, and from the look of things, he won’t have to. We already know that there are a lot of salacious details tucked behind the royal family’s shiny lives, and especially with Charles. The whole section of his life with Princess Diana alone is probably filled with gossip and drama, and I can’t imagine what the rest of the book would hold.
Granted, the royals are still trying to stop him, with a source telling the Daily Mirror, “Arbiter has been told that he does not have official permission to write this book and a legal team has reviewed all his old contracts in a bid to try and find a way to stop it.”
Get some popcorn, sit back, and watch the train wreck unfold. It’s about to be a bumpy ride, especially for Prince Charles.
