“Jerramy Fine is almost too good to be true: a beautiful, intelligent American girl who thinks there’s something attractive and romantic about upper-class Englishmen. It’s heartwarming to know that there are still people out there who think of England as a fairy-tale kingdom.”

In a brief, it is a manual for any American girl who has ever dreamed of moving to the United Kingdom in search of her prince.
Basing Regal Rules for Girls on her own experience,which she wrote about in her wonderfully entertaining memoir Someday My Prince Will Come, Jerramy offers a guide for other plucky American women to pursue their own prince charming. However, unlike other self-help books filled with inspirational platitudes, this one offers a pragmatic and calculated approach towards achieving happily ever after. Call it a reality check for would be Cinderellas. If you want the glass slipper, you're going to have to work for it.
Forget dreaming about your prince, you'll have to single-mindedly hunt him down in his natural environment. Jerramy offers tips on how to spot your prey based on physical characteristics and educational background, and recommends the best 'Regal Hunting Grounds' (Polo matches, sailing, skiing in the Alps) with accompanying websites. Should the need arise, essential survival skills are provided: the full lyrics to God Save the Queen, classic martini recipe, diagram for how to properly tie a bow tie, sailing lingo to impress your nautical suitor, and a pronunciation guide so you don't unwittingly become a social pariah when you just want to relax on the couch (err..sofa).
All sorts of unromantic territory is covered: government visas, finding an apartment (err..Read more ›
Regal Rules is the perfect guide for girls. It touches on everything from manners and etiquette to where to go in London to find your prince. I was literally not able to put it down; mesmerized by the detailed knowledge of the perfect life in London and how to attain it.
But more than just a guide book to London it, as does Fine's memoir, inspires girls to stop at nothing to attain your dreams--even if that means picking up and moving to another country you always dreamt of going to.
Read this book and live happily ever after!
As a twenty-something college grad with my own British Royal obsession, this book appealed to me on many levels. Full of sarcasm, quick wit, and meaningful undertones about how to get what you want, I was completely inspired the whole way through. I often found myself belly-laughing (sometimes out loud, and in crowded public places).
I was so pleased to find out that there were also two other books I could drool over when I was done (Bright Young Royals and Someday My Prince Will Come) which were equally entertaining. I highly recommend them all!

Fine covers all of the essentials and then some. She carefully details how to get that all-important visa, which neighborhoods are the best, and the correct way to eat your peas. (Smash them on the back of your fork with your knife.) She also completely justifies my love for weak, milky tea as being ready to join the upper echelons of British society, solidifying herself as one of my favorite authors.
A large portion of the book is devoted to meeting and dating an Englishman. While the section did seem a bit long, it was fascinating to read about the many cultural differences that exist between Americans and the British when it comes to dating, differences that one forgets about since we share a common language. Fine provides numerous insightful tidbits for potential encounters with Englishmen and royal Englishmen.
One of my favorite chapters was toward the end, where Fine gives great tips on how to "fake it till you make it," or how to make the most of one's budget in expensive London. She gives readers the lowdown on transportation in London: the tube, the bus, taxis (including the scoop on the famous black taxis), and mini cabs. She has many suggestions on how to enjoy the nightlife on a budget, and lists option for frugal eating.
Littered with funny parables and written in an honest and optimistic tone, The Regal Rules is more than just your average guide to London. Fine is like a girl friend or big sister giving her readers an inside look at this British world and telling them how they too can become a part of it.
