Prince Charles and his estranged wife will battle it out in the bookstores in November, with new accounts from opposite sides of the fractured fairy-tale marriage.
Tabloid newspapers reported today that Diana is the subject of a new book by Andrew Morton, author of a previous book that gave her side of a disintegrating marriage.Michael O'Mara Books confirmed that it will publish "Diana: Her New Life" on Nov. 8, just five days after Jonathan Dimbleby is to publish his biography, "The Prince of Wales."
Dimbleby has already scored the royal scoop of the year by getting Charles to acknowledge he had not always been faithful to his wife.
Charles and Diana formally separated in December 1992.
In the interview with Dimbleby broadcast in June, Charles denied rumors that he had been unfaithful from the start of his marriage in 1981. He insisted he had kept his vows until the marriage "became irretrievably broken down."
Dimbleby subsequently confirmed that Charles' affair had been with Camilla Parker Bowles, the prince's old friend.
