Synopsis

This is the definitive inside account of how William's love affair with an ordinary middle class English girl will reshape Britain's monarchy into a 21st century institution. Defined by the errors and scandals of the past, William can - some say must - now pursue a relationship where love and duty are entwined. This book tells the story of William's transition from adolescent, grieving the loss of his beloved mother Diana and coming to terms with his father's love for another woman; to cool royal icon and self-possessed young man, confident and desirable as a uniquely eligible young man. For the first time this book chronicles his relationship with Kate Middleton - a partner who bucks all historic trends - from their first encounter at university in Scotland to her being strongly tipped as the next royal bride, and future Queen Consort. It details how William has been shaped by the failures of past and current heirs to the throne - and how in the figure of Kate he has reconciled the conflicting pressures he faces in choosing the right bride. The result is a comprehensive and fascinating insight into not only the romantic life of a Prince, but an expose of the inner workings of the evolving monarchy and its fight for renewed respect in the hearts and minds of the British public and the world.
