Praise for Kate: The Future Queen

"Part modern fairy tale, part royal love story, Kate: The Future Queen is the definitive account of how commoner Kate Middleton met her prince and became the Duchess of Cambridge."
Vanity Fair

"[I]f like us you’re obsessed with all things K-Mid, you need this book in your life."
New Magazine

"You’ll be glued to [Kate: The Future Queen] — and simultaneously wish Kate — ahem, Catherine — was your best friend. With all the juicy details about her life (many of which have never before been revealed), maybe you can just pretend she is!"
HelloGiggles.com

Praise for The Making of A Royal Romance

"An entertaining, richly photographed book . . . Chattily and fondly Ms. Nicholl chronicles the boys’ lives and gives Kate ample treatment."
New York Times Book Review

"Reveals juicy tidbits ahead of a royal wedding."
USA Today

"Talk about perfect timing! Just as news of Prince William’s engagement broke, royal watcher Katie Nicholl’s book about the future king hit the stores. Full of insights and juicy details about both young men, it’s a must for any fans of the royals."
Life and Style

"The Bob Woodward of royal reporting."
George Stephanopoulos, ABC News

I bought this book for my wife as she is a dedicated Royal watcher. She liked it, but she found it a little boring and with very little new information about Kate. She had to skim through large sections because it wasn't a very compelling read. If you know next to nothing about Kate this would be a good choice. Otherwise, the book is old news...

This book was obviously rushed out to capitalise on the birth of Prince George. It is loosely written with lots of filler material, including much unfounded speculation about the emotional state of Kate, William and members of their families. There is also much discussion of Kate's fashion choices. A very disappointing follow-up to Ms Nichol's earlier book on Kate and William. I would chose the earlier book, sub-titled "A royal romance" over this one. This book is not as well written and adds little of interest.

I heard about this book via a recommendation and review by a blogger I follow and since I have always been a casual fan of British royalty, I decided it would be a good idea to check this book out. I thought it was quite enjoyable! I enjoyed learning about Kate and getting to know her background and upbringing. It was also pretty cool to get some details and insight about William, royal protocol and bits and pieces of other family members too. There were a few inspirational things about it all, and I found it refreshing to read a story about an earnest rise to a prominent lifestyle instead of perhaps a recounting of a more negative or abused past.

If you're a fan of the royal family or even of royalty in general, I think you'll enjoy this friendly and sympathetic telling of Kate's life story.

there was almost nothing new in this book except perhaps the fact that the family lived in Asia for a few years.
the author kept burnishing the Middleton side of the family. Do we really have to make them seem more than they really are!

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.
