This is the first authoritative portrait of the two young princes. Ingrid Seward, the best-selling author of The Queen and Di, draws from her personal conversations with Prince ... Charles and Princess Diana, as well as a wide range of intimate contacts, to give us the closest look yet at the lives of the men who may one day be king. Seward takes a frank look at the problems the two boys faced growing up in the spotlight of royalty. She reveals for the first time how they reacted to the breakup of their parents' marriage and their mother's tragic death, as well as how they dealt with Diana's overwhelming, and often terrifying, celebrity in life. 310 pages, including a bibliography, index, and 24 pages of color photographs. The jacket back is somewhat scuffed. 8vo - over 7?" - 9?" tall. Read more Show Less

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Seward, author of The Queen and Di, takes a close look at Charles and Di's progeny, Princes William (the heir) and Harry (the "spare"), in this primly trashy dual biography. Unfortunately, for all their genetic glamour, their Royal Highnesses are rather dull and callow in the flesh, at least as revealed here. Seward drift-nets gossip from an assortment of teachers, nannies, body-guards, relatives of friends and even a party clown, calls in a battery of child-psychologists to assess the damage from their parents' famously unhappy marriage, and discourages (and yet somehow subtly fuels) speculation about Harry's provenance. But William, the reluctant celebrity slouching into manhood, and the avowedly redundant Harry ("'You're going to be king. It doesn't matter what I do,'" he is reported to have said at age nine) gravitating to drink, minor loutishness and polo does not make for gripping reading. The book, instead, is dominated by the larger-than-life figure of their mother, Diana-her crying jags, her bulimia, her lovers, her tell-all interviews and her love/hate relationship with the paparazzi who prized and hounded her. Seward writes cleanly and has done her share of research, but this book is for true royals fans only. Photos Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Tut tut tut

    Ms. Seward does her usual hatchet job on the Princess in this, her latest 'book'. I almost put it down midway through the book because of this, but I did not. The only advice I would like to offer the author is to get a better proofreader (this book is literally full of typographical errors)and to try and look at things in perspective. She always paints Diana as the bad guy. Sour grapes?

    William and Harry?

    This book, while easy to read and somewhat interesting, was more about Charles and Diana than it was about their boys. It was only the last few chapters that focused exclusively on William and Harry. Also, Seward came down quite hard on Diana in terms of her role in the break up of the marriage. While Diana certainly shoulders her share of the blame, so does Charles; Seward glosses over his role in the downfall. My humble opinion is that if Charles would have shifted his sense of duty (which is strong and admirable) from ribbon-cuttings and speeches to his fiance'/wife at the outset, that marriage may have been saved. He never took the time to get to know that 19 year old, emotionally needy young woman.

    William and Harry with spin thrown in

    Ingrid Seward is editor and writer for Majesty Magazine and has written several books on the Royal Family. Unfortunately, she is prone to spin on stories of the royals, particulary when it comes to Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. Her works reflect this support and she writes about her attendance at parties held by Charles and Camilla. She also praises Mrs. Parker Bowles to the skies, and, at the same time, is prone to Diana bashing. That being said, Seward cannot resist spin on the royal marriage in her new book about the sons of Charles and Diana: William and Harry. These two splendid young men are coming of age: William's 21st birthday is the same month Seward's work hit the bookstores. This would have been a better book if Ingrid Seward had resisted the spin and bias she obviously has on the royal marriage. Most of the book is devoted to the time when the boys' parents were both living. Seward cannot resist some Diana bashing and making Charles and Camilla look like models of virtue. For instance, when it comes to Diana, Ingrid describes her at various times as 'child-woman,' possessive mother, manipulator, and weeper (in fact at every other page, Seward describes Diana upstairs crying). If Diana did all the crying that Ingrid Seward describes, she would never have been able to leave her room and accomplish all she did as Princess of Wales and mother to William and Harry. The worst part of the portrait of Diana comes when Seward describes the Camilla and Charles situation. Seward does admit Mrs. Parker Bowles did cause difficulties in the marriage. However, she tempers her criticism with saying that Diana's 'obsession' with Camilla 'drove' Charles back to her. Sheer nonsense. Camilla was constantly around and Charles did not give up his 'friendship' with the married Camilla throughout his marriage. Seward states (based on flimsy evidence by Charles' courtiers) that Diana cheated first with Sgt. Mannakee so naturally, 'poor' Charles returned to Camilla Parker Bowles. Not surprisingly, not a word of criticism is lodged against Camilla Parker Bowles for her cheating on her husband and for being involved with a married man. What is outrageous also is that Seward keeps repeating William's 'embarrassment' over his mother, especially her interview. No word of William's 'embarrassment' is mentioned over his father's Camillagate tape or his televised confession of adultery. If William had been embarrassed, Seward will never tell.Making Charles' relationship with Mrs.Parker Bowles acceptable is the underlying subliminal message; making the mistress look good by trashing the late ex-wife is a cheat shot. I wish Ms. Seward had resisted putting in the Harry 'paternity' allegations, that Hewitt is his father. These are ugly, malicious rumors that should have been stopped years ago (by Prince Charles and St. James Palace) should not have been in this book, at least for Harry's sake. Seward makes the royals look virtuous and even hints that it was Diana's 'fault' that she lost the HRH title. If William and Harry were concentrated on without the spin, this would have been a good book. I enjoyed the stories of their childhood (the games of soldiers, their enjoyment of rural life at Highgrove, the pranks). William is the serious, sensitive one; Harry the fun-loving one. The accounts of school days are fascinating, particularly the descriptions of life at Eton. Despite the turbulent marriage, their parents lavished love on the boys. Their teen-age years were fascinating and I particularly liked reading the account of William's gap year. Since they are only young men, there is still much to do in their lives and undoubtedly there will be many more books about William and Harry. This is a good account of William and Harry themselves, but I had a difficult time getting through the passages about Diana. Ms. Seward's apparent antipathy towards the late Princess is obvious as is her support of the relationship of Char
