Review

"Classically trained actress/Audie Award winner Justine Eyre's narration is excellent, incorporating the spirit of all of Nicholl's breathless confidences. Great adult listening; an essential acquisition." ---Library Journal Starred Audio Review

Format: Hardcover
This biography is exceptionally well-written, depicting the growth of the two young princes in a compassionate, well-informed way. The book deals with all of the major events in the princes' lives, from the tragedy in their early life to their romances (past and present). Nicholl reveals all of the princes' complex relationships, muses on their decisions and options for the future, and exposes never before heard information on the young, middle class woman who may one day be Queen. Often humorous, and often heart-rending, this book was completely unputdownable.

This book has not been researched, it's simply strung together bits from the tabloid press with other bits apparently created for the book. Often humorous factual errors. One such ss the infamous "cherry brandy" episode for young Prince Charles--in this re-telling it claims he was drunk!! Good grief, the incident received blanket coverage in the news of that day and has been touched on in every book ever written about him. He was NOT drunk--that was half the reason it was so stupid. He'd merely ordered. Get your facts straight, lady. Too many other stupid things to mention. People Magazine even offers better coverage. This mess would be serialized in something like a very poor supermarket tabloid--right next to an Elvis spotting article.

I read everything I can get my hands on that has to do with Britain's royal family. This book was interesting but shed no light on what had already been published in previous books and "Hello" and "People" magazines. The author's use of first person accounts was disconcerting because few, if anyone, would have access to the day-to-day stories she related. Case in point: the book starts with an account of William and Harry running around Balmoral over one Christmas break. Unless it was something very unusual, the royals always spend Christmas at Sandringham House. If this indeed did occur at Balmoral, then some mention should have been made of why. Other things, such as conversations between members of the family (William and his grandparents) is largely speculative. Do I recommend the book? Maybe. Even the photographs have been published elsewhere, so there's little new to recommend it. Nothing seriously wrong with the book...nothing unique about it either.

This was a disappointing book in a way because it doesn't say much that the public doesn't already know. Much is left unsaid. The author is a journalist who writes articles about the royal family and apparently didn't want to go too far.
Throughout this book one gets a feel of two young men who don't feel comfortable with the roles that birth thrust upon them. On one hand they accept who they are, but then their mother rejected the royal family and in a way they reject who they are, possibly in loyalty to her, but these issues are never really dealt with in any significant way in the book. They act out all over the place in some parts, getting drunk, and living lives of excess in general.
Harry is more of an enigma than older brother William, especially when on one hand he is devoted to charity work, yet on the other intent on serving on the front lines of the war in Afghanistan, allegedly so he can be treated the same as the other men in the service. He seems to have a powerful need to put himself in great danger, and that issue was never dealt with.
The issue of whether he is really the son of Charles or of someone Diana had an affair with is just basically passed over and pooh-poohed, although I think there may be a connection between that and his acting out.
The incident where Harry goes to a party dressed like a Nazi is hilarious, yet it wasn't meant to be. One must wonder how a prince of England, having gone to the best of schools, would not know what a swatiska was.
The only person in this book that felt like more than a cardboard character to me was Kate Middleton, and there was far too little about her.
All in all a good book if you want facts, but not much if you really want to understand the two princes.

The emphasis she places in both princes acceptance of Camilla Parker Bowls is a strong indication of her bias and it is very hard to believe. If her version is true then both sons, who have been reared by the royal family, have been swallowed up by the unfair and untruthful account of the role Camilla played in Diana and Charles separation and final divorce. I think Nicholl knows better than that.

An interesting read, entertaining, but certainly nothing even a non anglophile American has not read or heard before.. I would recommend it to anyone who is so fascinated by these two young princes, that they just cannot get enough of them. But as I said interesting, not terribly revealing of two young men who constantly work to protect their personal lives from the public. Certainly nothing new about Princess Diana or Camilla.

I read this in hopes that the next generation of royals would be less spoiled, demanding and boorish as the current generation of the royal family. William comes out better in this book, but I don't understand Kate waiting six years for him to make up his mind. Harry is portrayed as out of control with no common sense. Hopefully, Kate Middleton Windsor will be the saving grace for this family.
