William and Harry was an overnight sensation when it was published a week before Prince William and Kate Middleton's engagement announcement in November 2010. Now the author, a royal insider and the royal correspondent for the Daily Mail, has updated and added crucial material that completes the story of the fairytale romance. In addition to providing fascinating insight into the lives and loves of two young men who are very much in the public spotlight worldwide, this updated version now becomes the definitive book that brings their story-and that of Kate Middleton, the future Queen Catherine-up to date. The author now fully reveals the secret marriage pact that William and Kate have had for several years, dispelling the notion that Kate Middleton has been "Waity Katie." It paints a portrait of Kate by looking back at her family and childhood, her close friends and former boyfriends, and her ever-present devotion to the love of her life, Prince William. It reveals the domestic life that the two have been living in Wales and provides a look at what the future holds for their new commitment. The epilogue focuses on the wedding preparations. The book will be the most authoritative and entertaining guide to the royal family's most widely anticipated public event since the wedding of Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles.

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Maria | 2/2/2014

    " I've never trusted Katie Nicholl. I've learned that I would never trust people who are in the royal circle. They will never tell the truth. It's either bad or good, that's it. Look what happened to Richard Kay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rosalie | 1/13/2014

    " Nothing new in this book. It's just a repeat of what I read in newspapers and magazines etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat | 1/12/2014

    " I didn't have anything to listen to in my car so I grabbed this. Not too bad. Interesting to hear about the lives of Harry and William from their birth through their school years and up to William and Kate's engagement. I'm not much of a celebrity follower, but it was ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 1/8/2014

    " This book was okay but not enough information in it for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin Butler | 12/14/2013

    " Excellent reading following "Diana: Her True Story." This book was written prior to the wedding, in anticipation of book sales, I'm sure, but included pictures of the engagement, not the wedding. This was a fun summer read, especially in light of the North American visit of William and Kate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nora | 11/17/2013

    " It wasn't exactly high art, but it was an enjoyable, thorough and mostly non-fluffly look at not only Kate and William, but Harry, Diana and the rest of the British royal family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy R. | 11/17/2013

    " Was a nice detailed summary of the Prince's lives up untill the engament of William and Kate. There is nothing on the actual wedding. Made me look at Diana in a more concerned way. She wasn't the little angel that she is made out to be. Made me feel sorry for Charles, though he is no angel himself. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marita | 11/12/2013

    " Other than the misleading name this was fun to listen to for me since I had not followed up on the British Royal family for years. Had to admire Kate's patience!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 6/17/2013

    " Forgive my guilty pleasure, but WOW, those royals have WAY too much time on their hands! "

    " the story of Diana's sons and the woman Wills loves. Not bad. light reading. "

    " Yes..... I'm fueling my obsession. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/17/2013

    " I don't know how much of it is true. The author's sources are substantial and she is very well researched. I enjoyed it, it was a good read for the car ride. "

    " A total waste of time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina Dudley | 5/20/2012

    " Ends with the engagement. Fun, absorbing fluff. No idea what the fuss is about, wanting to get rid of the monarchy. They're great for tourism and give us something to think about besides what's for dinner. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 11/16/2011

    " I am not going to lie. I'm excited for the royal wedding. My family moved to England and I started school in Cambridge shortly after Diana and Charles were married. This wedding brings back all those memories! And - about the book - it's mostly like reading a 340-page issue of People magazine. "

    " I really enjoyed this book because it was an inside glimpse to the royal life. I'm fascinated with the royals though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikki | 8/27/2011

    " This book was easy to read & I enjoyed the photos, but pretty much all the stories were in magazines before. I guess I was probably reading People every week at the time so not much was new. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lesa Parnham | 6/16/2011

    " A a hopelessly pathetic Royal watcher everyone I know gives me every book, magazine and news clipping about the royals. In a rush to be the first William and Kate book this is an older book about William and Harry with a chunk about Kate thrown in. Is it true? Who knows? The Queen is not amused. lol "
