    Prince Harry, one of the most popular members of the British royal family, has had a colorful life. After losing his mother at 12 years old, he spent his teenage years making questionable choices under intense international media scrutiny, becoming known for his mischevious grin, shock of red hair, and the occassional not-so-royal indiscretion. As he's grown, he has distinguished himself through military service, flying helicopters for the RAF.

    His face is recognized the world over; his story is well known. But what is Prince William truly like? As Diana's eldest son, he was her confidant. While the tabloids eagerly lapped up the details of his parents' divorce, William lived though it, suffering the embarrassment and divided loyalties. He watched his father denounced on prime-time television; he met the lovers. And when he was just 15, his beautiful, loving mother was suddenly, shockingly snatched from his life forever. The nation lost its princess and its grief threatened the very future of the monarchy. What was almost forgotten in the clamor was that two small boys had lost their mother.

    Pattie Boyd was the Queen of the 60s and beyond...a drop-dead gorgeous model, photographer, and the inspiration for the timeless songs "Something", "Layla", and "Wonderful Tonight". Her story is one of drama, struggle, and, ultimately, affirmation, but her struggles (against addiction, tragedy, infertility) were lived with two of the 20th century's greatest musical icons: her husbands George Harrison and Eric Clapton.
