The Duchess of Cornwall has been in top secret negotiations with book publishers in the US about a deal that could see her share her never-told-before story, much to the shock of senior royals.
It’s believed the blockbuster expose will reveal exactly how her illicit romance with Charles began and new details of their affair behind Diana’s back – as well as revealing exactly how she feels about every member of the royal family.
Sources tell New Idea Camilla’s views on Duchess Kate, Meghan Markle and Denmark’s Princess Mary – ‘which aren’t exactly kind or pleasant’ – will shock the world, making it no great surprise that the Queen is using all her power to stop the tell-all from ever seeing the light of day.
‘Camilla’s been offered a whopping US$10 million by a US publishing house to spill all her secrets on her life with Charles, their affair and all the dramas from inside the palace – and it’s caused terror to rip through the royal family in what they fear could be the biggest scandal they’ve ever faced,’ a high-ranking palace source tells New Idea.
‘One of Camilla’s closest aides leaked the information to someone inside the palace and an emergency summit was called immediately by the Queen,’ says the source.
‘The entire family has been shaken to the core – especially Charles, who fears Camilla’s revelations could be explosive.
It could not only destroy the royal family’s reputation – but cause them to fall apart for good.
‘Camilla is said to be revealing exactly what happened between her and Diana, how Charles was still seeing her when they were married, details of bitter showdowns with William and Harry and painting the boys in a very different light to the charming princes they are known to be.
‘She’s also set to spill potentially devastating details about how the Queen really reacted to Harry’s relationship with Meghan Markle, tensions between Charles and the Queen over the throne, and how Kate tried to bulldoze her journey to the throne – and the rows which took place between them.
‘This could potentially be devastating and the palace is now trying to devise an action plan to stop the publishing deal from going ahead.
‘Right now everyone feels like they are waiting for a bomb to explode.’
It’s believed Camilla is digging in her heels on doing the tell-all, with supporters revealing she thinks ‘she’s been silenced for too long’ and that her opinion deserves to be heard.
Camilla, say sources, loved the attention she received following her interview to commemorate her recent 70th birthday, and would love to have more time in the limelight.
‘She’s so fed up with so many things behind palace doors – that’s why she’s really considering doing this book,’ an insider reveals. ‘She disapproves of Meghan, Kate and Princess Mary – she really hates that so many “commoners” are finding their way into Europe’s biggest royal families.
‘She’s sick of the sympathy that Diana continues to receive and how she and Charles have always been painted as heartless and conniving. She wants the world to know she was Charles’ rightful wife back when she was a teenager, that they were in love back then – but Philip and the Queen ended their romance and forced him to marry Diana.
‘She wants to have her say – and she’s not going to pull plans to do this book easily.’
Sources say the book is just the latest saga in a long line of scandals behind the scenes at Buckingham Palace, involving Camilla, who is reportedly demanding that aides should call her Queen.
‘She thinks the Queen should abdicate and demands that all her minions call her “Her Majesty” and “Queen” behind the scenes, telling them that they “need to practise,”’ says a source.
‘It’s frightfully disrespectful – but that’s Camilla for you. ‘She’s really throwing her weight around at the moment. ‘She wants to be head of the royal family sooner, rather than later.’
