Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Classically trained actress/Audie Award winner Justine Eyre's narration is excellent, incorporating the spirit of all of Nicholl's breathless confidences. Great adult listening; an essential acquisition." —Library Journal Starred Audio Review
Library Journal
In her first book, Mail on Sunday royal family diarist Nicholl does an extraordinary job of compiling and detailing accounts of the nonpublic lives of royal princes William and Harry of Great Britain, on whom the future and influence of the House of Windsor largely depend. Many of these stories have already appeared in her column or in the likes of Hello! and People magazines, but Nicholl here relies on a network of insider sources to lend further insight and draw a more complete picture of the brothers, bringing their story up-to-date. Get the scoop (or catch up) on William's and Harry's respective love lives as well as how they have been shaped by royal politics, their parents' divorce, and their mother's tragic death. Casual or novice royal watchers will be most attracted to this account, though demand will be great all around given William's impending marriage to Kate Middleton. Classically trained actress/Audie Award winner Justine Eyre's narration is excellent, incorporating the spirit of all of Nicholl's breathless confidences. Great adult listening; an essential acquisition.—Cliff Glaviano, formerly with Bowling Green State Univ. Libs., OH

This book was intriguing! I had a hard time putting it down to do my studies! I knew nothing about the British monarchy and this book explained everything the author referenced to. Overall, I would recommend this book!

I found the book to be very interesting, however, I thought the flow of the book was very choppy. Also, I wished Katie Nicholl would have disclosed more of her sources. But none the less, I found it to be a good read.
