Another royal tell-all is soon to hit newsstands, this one penned by trusted, long-time Buckingham Palace press secretary Dickie Arbiter.

The 73-year-old Arbiter spent 12 years — 1988 to 2000 — in the Queen's employ, according to the Sunday Mirror, and was considered a trustworthy confidante of Prince Charles, who is reportedly steamed about the upcoming book "On Duty With The Queen."

Arbiter was present during the tumultuous years of Prince Charles and Princess Diana's marriage, Charles' affair with now-wife Camilla Parker-Bowles, and Diana's tragic death in a 1997 car crash in Paris.

He will be the first Buckingham Palace press officer to reveal trusted secrets in a book, according to the Mirror, which reports that Arbiter had previously turned down "countless offers" for his memoirs.

"It is just a case of a man who [Prince Charles] thought was a friend, and who could be trusted, cashing in on the misery of that time. It is disloyal," a royal palace source told The Daily Mail.

Arbiter, a former broadcaster, has said the book is "is not a kiss-and-tell but an autobiography," but went on to say that "it's a candid look behind some of the most salacious and sensational royal stories of those days from the perspective of someone who was not only there, but who also had experience of the monarchy.

"This is not just a memoir of an intense dozen years but is a story of a life, my life and it's been quite an — extraordinary one," he said.
