Wonderful tonight : George Harrison, Eric Clapton, and me by Pattie Boyd( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An iconic figure of the 1960s and '70s, Pattie Boyd breaks a 40-year silence, telling how she found herself bound to two of the most addictive, promiscuous musical geniuses of the twentieth century. She met the Beatles in 1964 in the cast of A Hard Day's Night. Ten days later George Harrison proposed. For 20-year-old Boyd, it was the beginning of a rich and complex life as she was welcomed into the Beatles' inner circle. She describes the dynamics of the group, and the memories she has of Paul and Linda, Cynthia and John, Ringo and Maureen, and especially the years with her husband, George. Then her turbulent life took another unexpected turn with a passionate letter from Eric Clapton. Now the high-profile model whose face epitomized the swinging London scene of the 1960s, a woman who inspired Harrison's song "Something" and Clapton's anthem "Layla," has wrriten her book.--From publisher description

The Duchess : Camilla Parker Bowles and the love affair that rocked the crown by Penny Junor( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first in-depth biography of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and her remarkable transformation from pariah to popular Princess Consort. Few know the Windsor family as well as veteran royal biographer and journalist Penny Junor. In [this book], she casts her insightful, sensitive eye on the intriguing, once widely despised, and little-known Camilla Parker Bowles, revealing in full, for the first time, the remarkable rise of a woman who was the most notorious mistress in the world. As Camilla's marriage to Charles approached in 2005, the British public was upset at the prospect that this woman, universally reviled for wrecking the royal marriage, would one day become Queen. Sensitive to public opinion, the Palace announced that this would never happen; when Charles eventually acceded to the throne, Camilla would be known as the Princess Consort. Yet a decade later, British public sentiment had changed, with a majority believing that Camilla should become Queen. Junot argues that although Camilla played a central role in the darkest days of the modern monarchy--Charles and Diana's acrimonious and scandalous split--she also played a crucial role in restoring the Royal Family's reputation, especially that of Prince Charles. A woman with no ambition to be a princess, a duchess, or a queen, Camilla simply wanted to be with, and support, the man who has always been the love of her life. Junor contends that their marriage has allowed Charles finally to become comfortable as the heir to the British throne."--Dust jacket
