For the past thirteen years, as England became an increasingly unhappy and fearful place, Prince Charles has been living quietly on a bleak council estate, The Flower Exclusion Zone (known locally as 'The Fez), with his wife and love of his life, Camilla. He enjoys gardening and poultry keeping while Camilla spends her days doing as little as possible, alongside their fellow ASBO-subjected neighbours. But life is about to change... Charles refuses to follow his destiny unless his wife can be Queen - and public opinion suggests the people would rather have Jordan than Camilla on the throne. But no sooner has Prince William offered himself as the next monarch, than one Graham Cracknall of Ruislip emerges - claiming to be Charles and Camilla's secret love child, and therefore the rightful heir to the crown. When the battle for the Crown begins the dogs on the Fez begin a struggle of their own - one that sweeps across the dog population of England. As Harris, the Queen's irascible corgi says, 'we've been domesticated for too long, it's time we showed our bleeding teeth.' Will sanity prevail over the right royal cock up that England has become? Or will chaos reign supreme? "Queen Camilla" shows Sue Townsend at her very best - sharp, satirical and utterly hilarious from the first page to the last.

What would happen if an anti-monarchy and anti-dog party were in charge in England? Just when it looks as if the monarchy might be restored, Graham Cracknell of Ruislip emerges, claiming to be Charles and Camilla's love child and a rightful heir to the throne. Similar to Townsend's earlier The Queen and I, this hilarious yet sober satire is set in the not-too-distant future.

"Sue Townsend brings wit and whimsy to the real-life royal family with her pair of YA novels. In The Queen and I, a new conservative government has ended the monarchy, and the Queen, Prince Phillip and the rest of the Windsor clan have to learn to live like commoners. Queen Camilla looks to a future queen: Prince Charles’s current wife and one-time mistress. Charles and Camilla may be happily married now, but their courtship was filled with drama. Sue Townsend takes their story a step further in this biting send-up of the modern monarchy."
