The royal couple who just recently became engaged on Nov. 16 already have their courtship published in the book “William and Kate: A Royal Love Story.”
The book is written by James Clench who covers the royal family for the British tabloid, The Sun. Complementing Clench’s in-depth knowledge of the family on paper are published photographs that were taken by Arthur Edwards, a seasoned photographer for The Sun.
Readers will be engrossed with “the greatest love story of the century,” detailing how “the boy who would one day be king” met Kate, “the middle-class girl who harbored a crush on him since her school days.” Other aspects of the couple detail romantic pet names such as “Babykins” and “Big Willie.” For the couple who have dated for nine years, fans can expect pages filled with Prince William’s relationships with other women and Kate Middleton break-ups among years of separation and reconciliation between the two.
The book has already been published in Britain and is slated to hit shelves in the United States on Dec 17. It’s published by both Harper Collins and The Sun, which are both owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp.
Expected to join “William and Kate: A Royal Love Story” are a slew of biographical books, including one produced by celebrity journalist Andrew Morton whose “Diana: Her True Story” published in 1992 destroyed the image of Princess Diana and Prince Charles due to Morton’s detailed events of eating disorders, infidelity and depression.
“William and Kate: A Royal Love Story” is published in anticipation of their wedding, presumed to be the biggest royal event in decades for the U.K.
