I have just breezed through this book. I read a few of the earlier biographies on Kate and this one really is the best one so far. As much information here as will likely be found without Kate or her family speaking about her past. There absolutely is new information in this book, and even with bits we've heard before there is more back story and filled in gaps. I also love the style, Katie Nicholl has a great way of story telling making it fun to read and yes, to some degree romanticizing the story as she tells it. Many biographies are much more dry and newsy so I enjoyed having one that is not only informative but enjoyable too. The only part that got a bit irritating was the constant (and I mean every few pages for the first half of the book) embellishment of how Kate was apparently so beautiful that she had men stopping in the streets to admire her, how every male who ever met her fancied her etc. Another downside is that I was definitely hoping for more photos. There are the standard 2 middle sections but each is only a few pages of small photos and most are magazine reprints - nothing interesting or really supportive of the story. During reading I thought it would be nice to see photos of the different people and places being mentioned alongside Kate at those times. All in all if you're interested in reading about Kate Middleton I recommend this as the one book to read, it covers everything and I can definitely see myself rereading it in the future.
