Format: Paperback
This book is full of facts and juicy details about the lives of Britain's Prince William and Prince Harry--the so-called "heir and the spare"--their school years, military careers and love lives. I believe the two brothers are serious about carrying on the work of their late mother, Princess Diana, but they also indulged in a lot of partying and heavy drinking while growing up. I've read a lot about Britain's royal family, so I didn't learn anything particularly new from this book. But the author does do a good job of showcasing the extremely close bond that the two brothers share, and the fact that they've turned out to be seemingly happy and well adjusted.

However, I can't get over the fact that the book's title is totally misleading. I read this to learn more about William and Kate's romance, and I was extremely disappointed. Kate Middleton is a very minor character in this story. In fact, there's more emphasis on Princess Diana than on Kate! It seems obvious to me that the publisher asked the author to write a new chapter or two on William and Kate, and changed the original title just to capitalize on the royal wedding. If you're interested in learning about Kate Middleton or her romance with William, you won't find a lot of information here. By the end of the book, Kate remains very much of an enigma. So be warned: New title or not, the focus is strictly on William and Harry, not "the making of a royal romance."

I really enjoyed this book- you never know EXACTLY how much is 100% true, but it seems like the author did her homework and made an interesting read. It stops after the engagement, but since I watched the wedding on TV that was ok with me- it gave a great look behind the scenes of the royal family and really demonstrated how hard Prince William tried to experience things as normally as possible. I think it paints Princess Catherine in a very positive light (I'm reading another one that tends to make her look more like she's climbing the social ladder). It is also really interesting to read about Prince Harry and his antics and his special relationship with his brother. I recommend it if you're interested in these young royals!

While this book doesn't seem to have an new scoops on the royal princes, it is a concise, well written book. Reading about what the princes have accomplished and how they have flourished and floundered in the years since their mother's death was informative. I hadn't realized Prince Harry took almost a 2 year gap "year". The royal girlfriends (and now wife) certainly have a hard path. I certainly didn't realize their military training was so rigorous and intense. It truly is their career at this point in their lives.

What you get for your money is, and the cover says so, is a "revised and expanded edition of (2010's) William and Harry, behind the Palace walls" by the same author. It's a nice enough book but not worth the money if you already have the hardcover version, buy it only if you don't have the earlier book. If memory serves me correctly, don't buy it for Kate info- she only came in at the last for a chapter or two and ends with the engagement .

This was an interesting read! I enjoyed getting an inside look into the story of Prince William and Kate Middleton's courtship. There was also tidbits about Prince Harry and other members of the royal family, including the late Princess of Wales, Diana. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Windsors.

Overall, I enjoyed this dishy retelling of a lot of gossip and tabloid pieces. The majority of it sheds a golden glow over the entire royal family. There were not many surprises, but its nice to have a narrative structure enveloping a decidedly romantic modern day Cinderella story. My only complaint is that the book is actually a repackaging of an earlier book focusing on William and Harry, so there is a lot about Harry-- I would have enjoyed more Kate. But by the end you'll be as enamoured with Diana's boys as ever and rooting for the royal couple.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book tells the story about Prince William and his brother Prince Harry from birth until Williams engagement to Kate Middleton in November 2010.

While the book does detail the early lives of Princes William and Harry (including Harry's secret deployment to Afghanistan) the majority of the book details the relationship between Prince William and Kate Middleton.

The book goes into details about the various stages of their relationship-in college their post college break (after which Prince Phillip wrote Kate a letter telling her that the best thing to do would just to give William some space) their reconciliation years and their engagement in November of 2010.

While a lot of it is not new information for many people it is a good read for people interested in the royal family

I was disappointed with the content of this book. I thought there would be much more about Kate. The title should not have been The Making of a Royal Romance since there was little about the "romance." It was a waste of my tiime. It seems like any British citizen could have written this book.
