For 20 years a leading Fleet Street journalist with columns in The Times, Sunday Telegraph, Daily Express and Today, he is now a best-selling biographer and (as TP Fielden) novelist.

Most recently the creator of the English Riviera Murders featuring 1950s supersleuth Miss Dimont, he remains an internationally in-demand writer on royal matters, with regular appearances in TV documentaries and reports across the globe.

His biography of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall is the acknowledged source material for all other books and TV films on the subject, and his groundbreaking research on the life and family of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is also a primary source for biographers and film-makers.

His biography A Greater Love – Charles and Camilla was turned into a top-rated TV documentary screened in the USA, UK and 26 other countries around the globe, and he has co-produced three major TV documentaries on the British royals. He lectures widely on the subject.

Other factual books include:-

  • The Windsor Knot – the most comprehensive and authoritative account yet of the Diana/Charles/Camilla triangle. Published in North and South America, Spain, Germany, France and Japan.
  • Dancing With The Devil – the unknown story of the Duchess of Windsor’s love affair with gay Woolworth heir Jimmy Donahue.
  • A Greater Love - Charles and Camilla - the first fully-detailed account of the love affair between the royal lovers, and an authoritative biography of the hitherto-unknown Camilla Parker Bowles.
