“I might be Cinderella today, but I dread who they’ll think I am tomorrow. I guess it depends on what I do next.”

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it’s Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain’s future king. And when Bex can’t resist falling for Nick, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother, Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick’s sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he’s fated to become.

Which is how she gets into trouble.

Now on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex is faced with whether everything she’s sacrificed for love—her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself—will have been for nothing.

Quotes & Awards

  • The Royal We is full of love and humor…An absolute delight.”

    Emma Straub, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A joy from start to finish…A world so rich, a romance so compelling, and characters so funny and alive, that you’ll be terribly sad to see them go.”

    J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A breezy, juicy novel that’s like The Princess Diaries with fewer made-up countries and more sex-the kind of book you can imagine Pippa sneaking into Kensington Palace.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • The Royal We is for readers who prefer their love affairs straight up, without poison. It’s smart…[and] funny.”

    New York Times

  • “An entertaining read-but also a sharp critique of how we treat celebrities and what happens to people always in the paparazzi glare…Cocks and Morgan also know that daydreams should stay daydreams because the reality is much harsher. That’s what elevates The Royal We from just a good beach book to a beach book with a message—while remaining entertaining enough to keep your butt in your beach chair.”

    Philadelphia Inquirer

  • “Cocks and Morgan tackled their first dip into mainstream fiction for adults and nailed it. The Royal We is a wonderful tale of young love, peppered with animated characters, difficult hardships, and self-discovery.”

    RT Book Reviews (4 stars)

  • “The authors hit all the right notes in this funny, smart, emotional tale that will definitely appeal to fans of Jojo Moyes.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Pages of biting humor and breathtaking glamour rewrite a fairy tale into something more satisfying than a stack of tabloids.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Christine Lakin’s performance of this clever, funny, and sometimes poignant book is delicious…Lakin gives Bex a believable all-American liveliness and Prince Nick a touching, intelligent vulnerability that resonates. She is also expert at crafting the voices and accents of Nick’s friends and confidants. Each is easily recognizable and spot-on for that character. This perfect pairing of narrator and story captures the listener from the get-go.”
