I usually don't read biography's because I normally find them boring, but this one I liked a lot, mainly because I think it was a love story and a love story that many of us are familiar with, which is the love story between Prince William & Kate Middelton. I learned a lot about the royal family as well as the Middleton family. It was an enjoyable read. ( )

While I’ve never been one to obsess over the royal family, I have always had a passing interest in them. I was in London when Diana died and I remember looking out of the hotel and seeing all the newsstand signs with the headline and not believing it. And when Prince William started dating a *gasp* commoner, it really caught my attention because it seemed to be signaling a change in palace politics. As a result, I was pretty excited when William and Kate came out, since we don’t get as much coverage of the family here in Canada as they do in Europe. I didn’t end up starting it until recently, though, when the couple came to tour Canada a month ago.

Unfortunately, I was disappointed with William and Kate (the book, not the people). This is the first time I’ve read something by Christopher Andersen and I really couldn’t get into his writing style. The book has a very melodramatic tone as he “recounts” some of the interactions among William, Kate, and their friends and family. While I choose to believe that he did a proper job of researching their lives, I couldn’t really immerse myself in the biography the way I normally due, and I can only attribute it to the writing style since I was genuinely interested in learning more about Wills and Kate. There was just something about the way he re-enacted private moments that seemed a bit fake, or perhaps overly voyeuristic. I’m not really sure how to describe it but I had a bit of a negative reaction.

I actually have another book about the couple in my TBR pile so I’ll let you know how it compares to this one. I would only recommend this biography to people who are familiar with, and like, Christopher Andersen’s writing style. I did, however, enjoy looking at all the pictures.

I'll admit it; I am a fan of British Royalty. I grew up with a crush on Prince Charles and got up before dawn to watch his wedding. I did the same when William got married. It was interesting to read some of the details of the relationship between William and Kate. I will admit to being a little disturbed about the heavy drinking lifestyle that seems to surround William and Harry though. This was a page-turner for me. Very readable and filled with interesting detail. ( )

The contrast between calm, strategic Kate and her now-fiancé’s late, loose-cannon mother Diana is a central theme of the new biography. We sense that William turns with relief to this placid daughter of a successful mail-order party-supply-business couple....
In all, William and Kate is great fun, with lots of gossipy details

 
Royal love story detailed in well-written account.

I put it to William, particularly, that if you find someone you love in life, you must hang onto the love and look after it...... You must protect it... Diana
