Queen Elizabeth 'tolerates' Camilla, says 'Game of Crowns' author

A revealing book by author Christopher Andersen called Game of Crowns: Elizabeth, Camilla, Kate and the Throne -- released in the spring -- is giving us some insight into the lives of the 3 most powerful British royal women: the Queen, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Making a few bombshell accusations -- that the Queen simply "tolerates" Camilla at this point, it's sure to be a juicy read. Shedding light on the rivalries within the royal family, the book begins in a fictional future, where Queen Elizabeth has died and Charles becomes King. He goes against his word and makes Camilla his Queen, resulting in the pair becoming so unpopular that Charles is pushed to abdicate the throne to his son, William.
