More than a decade has passed since princes William and Harry watched in grief as their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest. Then just fifteen and twelve years old, William and Harry have since grown into extraordinary young men. Today they are modern princes poised to shape the Royal Family in their own image, and determined to carry the legacy of their beloved mother, Diana, into the twenty-first century.
The royal brothers have been the subjects of intense scrutiny since birth, but until now, no journalist has delved as successfully into their lives as Katie Nicholl. "Behind The Palace Walls" is a detailed look at the lives of the princes, especially when they were young. Through her unprecedented network of sources, some of whom have agreed to speak for the very first time, Nicholl provides fascinating insight into the lives of William and Harry, following them from childhood to present day, chronicling the difficult period after their mother's tragic death, their college years, their love lives, their careers as front-line soldiers, and William's struggles with his destiny as the future king.
Now, as William gets set to assume a more prominent role in the monarchy, and a royal wedding between he and Kate Middleton seems probable, Nicholl has spoken to a wealth of contacts close to the couple who reveal how their love affair really started at the University of Saint 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.
A constantly surprising and compulsively readable book, William and Harry sheds an astonishing light on the two most famous brothers in the world. The book deals with all of the major events in the princes' lives, from the tragedy in their early life to their romances (past and present). Author analyzes William and Harry's complex relationship with their father. Nicholl reveals all of the princes' complex relationships, muses on their decisions and options for the future, and exposes never before heard information on the young, middle class woman who may one day be Queen. Often humorous, heart-rending and hard to put down.
