NOW REVISED AND UPDATED TO INCLUDE THE CORONATION ‘To Charles, being monarch has nothing to do with power – he believes his role is to lead. It is up to others whether they choose to follow.’ When Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II died in September 2022, it sent shockwaves around the world. The longest reigning and oldest monarch, at ninety-six years of age, she had just publicly celebrated her Platinum Jubilee in June 2022. The Queen’s death meant the passing of the Crown to her son, HRH Charles, Prince of Wales, her controversial, earnest, and outspoken heir, who had long lived in the shadow of her mystique.
King Charles III’s own life has been marred by scandal and myth, but who is the real man behind the Crown? In this revised and updated edition, renowned royal correspondent and author Robert Jobson examines the life of our new King, and his passions, purpose, and motivations. Published in paperback alongside the King’s 75th birthday, Our King considers the life of the man and the monarch, reflecting on how his values and beliefs continue to shape him as he carries out this monumental role.
