William and Harry is a fascinating insight into the lives and loves of two extraordinary young men who have captured not only the hearts and minds of the British public but those the world over. This is the definitive book about the princes, bringing their story right up to date. It is the tale of two brothers who have carried the legacy of their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, into the twenty-first century and on whom the future of the House of Windsor largely depends. Drawing on her unique set of contacts, Katie Nicholl recounts the royal brothers' extraordinary lives and reveals William and Harry's real characters as they become front-line soldiers and modern princes. Through her network of sources, some of whom have agreed to speak for the very first time, Katie tells the story of one of Prince William's earliest romances and his struggle with his destiny as a future King of England. As a royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton seems more probable, Katie has spoken to a wealth of contacts close to the couple who reveal how their love affair really started at St. Andrews, the hurdles the pair overcame, and the challenges they still face. She recounts the story of Harry's time at Eton, his relationship with Chelsy Davy, and the three months he spent on the front line in Afghanistan. She analyzes William and Harry's complex relationship with their father and the woman who will one day become Queen Camilla. She talks to their friends, contemporaries, and confidants to paint a unique and revealing portrait of the two most famous brothers in the world. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phoebe | 2/16/2014

    " Entertaining if somewhat cheesy in places. Seemed pretty balanced, with plenty of "dirt" on both boys. Their livers must be pickled with all the drinking they do. It made me feel old, since I remember clearly when William was born. Recommended to all Royals fans. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Staci | 2/7/2014

    " A good biography of the two royal brothers that ends just before William and Kate get engaged. A pretty even look at the two princes, unlike some other books that tend to ignore Harry and focus heavily on William. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Lampe | 2/2/2014

    " Lots of tidbits for a royals watcher. It seemed fair and I enjoyed it as a break between heavier reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 1/31/2014

    " Rehash of familiar tabloid coverage, with just enough behind-the-scenes thrown in to make it sightly interesting. It does do a fairly decent job of conveying the Princes desire to be as "normal" as possible, which of course is laughable because we "normals" wouldn't mind being as "royal" as possible, would we? Overall, the book is an easy read, just glad I didn't pay for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilik Satrio | 1/24/2014

    " This book is a must for fans of English monarch "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/15/2014

    " A fascinating look at the lives of William and Harry Wales. This book takes us to right before William proposes to Kate Middleton. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/15/2014

    " I love reading about the princes, and this book had a lot of info I didn't already know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 1/14/2014

    " Rehash and a bit flat. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelly | 1/11/2014

    " An easy read for a long flight. "

    " It is interesting learning about the Royals. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jess | 11/23/2013

    " This wasn't really a comprehensive biography of the princes, it seemed to skim the surface of their lives. "

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

    " Meh....it was ok. Liked it for the most part. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 11/7/2013

    " Very interesting. I liked the Kate Middleton parts best. I did find myself wondering a lot about what was true and what was false. But, I enjoyed hearing about their military service and humanitarian efforts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeffry | 7/17/2013

    " Interesting book, although it felt a little like reading People magazine. I'd love to hear their side of the story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Vivian | 4/30/2013

    " It was an OK read. It was easier to read this than to follow a few year's worth of "Hello" magazine or the "National Enquirer". If you like gossip about the Royals, this is for you. I didn't know a thing about the lads before. Maybe I've learned too much now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Viki | 2/12/2013

    " I really enjoyed this book!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby Ward | 2/1/2013

    " This was exactly what you would expect. Cute stories, interesting details, but nothing earth shattering. A quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ellie Revert | 1/23/2013

    " Sort of embarrassed that I read this, but then again I have another to read about the bride-to-be. Overwhelmed by the amount of drinking at such early ages by all the young people. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 4/15/2012

    " I have followed these boys through all of their years of life. I am impressed on how "normal" their life is. Glad to see that Diana's vision for her boys has come to life. She would be so proud of them. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laura | 3/16/2011

    " 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. "
