In fact, I always felt that William was somewhat fascinating and it always amazed me how he seemed to have such a strong relationship with Charles - the man who basically made his mother's life on earth a living hell.
Having said that, I admit that I, obviously, was not privy to the `insider' information and should probably not judge, but I was praying that William would turn out more like his mother and a lot less like his father (physically and otherwise).
Thankfully, William seems to be quite down to earth and I was happy to discover that he chose NOT to be the philandering `future prince' - constantly making certain that he and his antics show up in the press.
I was also very happy to hear about his upcoming nuptials and when I was asked to review William and Kate, the Love Story, I happily did so.
Firstly, this book is incredibly well researched and it is obvious that the writing was done by someone who has more than just a passing interest in the subject matter. All too often, a `cheesy' book will be hastily put together in order to capitalize on the splash of `publicity' (15 minutes of fame?) but this is not the case here.
The author takes us meticulously through the Kate and Will story - with the good and the bad and did a wonderful job of putting the readers in the moment - making us feel as though we were sharing in on some confidences.
I also enjoyed the pictures in the book - many of which I had never seen before.
Although I am sure this book will not be the only one covering Will and Kate, I have no doubt that it will be considered informative AND entertaining.
The book gave me some distinct impressions of the two young people themselves. William seems like a rather immature stereotypical white male with little self-awareness about his privilege. In his college years he was always groping females at parties and emerging in the early hours drunk. (Maybe in Britain that's normal behavior). To his credit he did well academically.Read more ›
THere are other contentions including how "well" Diana and Charles got along after the divorce. He leaves out that in July 1997 Charles had a lavish birthday party for Camilla which was a major reason Diana left the country to vacation with Mohammed Al Fayed and his family.Read more ›

Somewhat predicatable - but I do hope they manage to have a GOOD partnership in life, and a private life. I've loved reading about royalty- esp.
in the UK since I was little.
