    Interesting but not always accurate

    Overall this was a good book about life after Diana for William, Harry and the royal family. It covers: William and Harry's lives (up until ca. March 2007), Operation Camilla and events leading up to the wedding of Charles and Camilla in 2005, and a look back at the marriage of Charles and Diana. The ladies in the young princes lives, Chelsy Davy and Kate Middleton, are also given considerable attention. The book isn't always laudatory about the young princes and covers the boys enjoyment of the good life of partying and looks into some of the escapades that perhaps the boys would rather forget (e.g. Harry in the Nazi outfit which William was said to approve of when they were shopping for costumes and William dancing in a boa during a night of revelry). What I didn't like about the book and found very tasteless is the gossip about Harry's paternity. Though the author rather earnestly presents the possibility that Hewitt is Harry's father he is on extremely shaky ground. He has a pic showing the 'resemblance' between the two--which is ridiculous since there is NO resemblance. Harry looks like his granddad Prince Philip in his facial features and a Spencer with red hair and as a toddler he bore a strong resemblance to his father Prince Charles at the same age. And the author's contention is based on some nonsensical reality show Hewitt went on 'under hypnosis' to make a fast buck. And the author keeps repeating it in several parts of the book. Harry is Prince Charles' case closed. And still another quibble is the obviously doctored photo of Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth--this is actually a picture of the Queen and Melinda Gates with Kate's head substituted. I don't know why the author didn't check the accuracy of this first. Plus, Anderson has 'pillow talk' between Charles and Camilla who always seems to be giving Charles advice. This is hearsay and unless a microphone was planted hard to believe. I also have trouble getting through the passages about how 'sensitive' Charles was after Diana's death. Charles didn't treat Diana very well (even having the 1997 birthday party for Camilla which was a major factor in Diana leaving England that Summer) so it's hard to believe he'd act so sensitively over the funeral plans after she died. All in all a good book, but I wish Anderson had left the ravings of Hewitt out and the wink wink nudge nudge about Harry's parentage. I find this very tasteless and ridiculous since there is NO resemblance between Harry and Hewitt.
