Kate is lovely and inspiring to many. So her story seemed like it would be interesting. It wasn't. A privileged girl enters the privileged set then the poor thing has to deal with being famous. The fawning narrative had the opposite effect and turned me off.
I truly wanted to understand the fascination - but this book is like a really long press release.
Sound more matter of fact and less fawning.
"Nothing new so American!"
Nice story but totally aimed at America...with dollars, and american seasons, nothing new to be learnt. Story built around quotes, but the reality is those in the true inner circle of The Duchess and her family would not be giving the quotes disappointing.
"Interesting but mediocre in places"
I think I learned something about Kate I didn't know before but frankly, the people who comment on these things are never going to say anything bad about Kate so it ended up feeling a bit fake and even sycophantic in places. There was a lot of assumptions and conjecture also.
It plodded along fairly well but it wasn't written in a particuarly interesting way.
I thought it was ok, but didn't really hold my attention to be honest.
It made me slightly more interested in finding out more about other members of the royal family, but this isn't an inspiring book.
