Publisher's Summary

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 21st 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.

    J.F., CA. I am a voracious "bookaholic" who enjoys many different genres. I am often listening to/reading multiple books at the same time.

    Story
    "Good!"

    Except for the narrator's changing accent (which was a little odd but not really off-putting), it was a relaxing listen with a good amount of non-frivolous information.

    Story
    "I really enjoyed it!"
    If you could sum up William and Harry in three words, what would they be?

    Fascinating


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved it because I remember many of the events described in the book. It was neat to get the back story to many of them.


    What does Justine Eyre bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    Listening to her accent makes it that much more authentic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Books on tape -- every commuter's friend. American history is my choice but then, in books, as in music, I'm all over the place.

    Story
    "C-A-V-A-L-R-Y, it's CAVALRY!"

    My own personal pet peeve, I guess, is when someone says "Calvary" when speaking militarily. Calvary is where Christ died. Cavalry is the troops.

    The narrator used the word erroneously through the entire book, which about drove me nuts! Surprising, too, that this wasn't caught on edit.

    Otherwise, I liked it. It was fine -- easy to listen to and kinda fun. No real earthshaking revealations but that was fine. It was especially fun because it was written before the engagement so we knew how things would work out somewhat.

    The narrator seemed to be striving for a bit of sn "upper crust" accent which didn't particularly work, nor was it necessary. Her voice was perfectly fine.

    "Disappointing narration"

    I think this is a good book, but it's difficult to know. I have listened to a lot of books read by British readers and this is the first one that is almost impossible to understand. This woman uses a lazy, nasal tone with varying volumes that is very frustrating. I would like to know more about William and Harry but I am missing a great deal simply because this narrator is so hard to understand. It's a shame . . .
