Book Description

1 April 2011
Alison Jackson presents a humorous folio of photographs to reveal all about the royal wedding between Kate and Wills, the most anticipated nuptials to come out of Britain since Charles and Diana, providing a glimpse into all the events we have imagined but never thought we would see. This largely chronological retelling of the romance of Wills and Kate and the run-up to the Royal Wedding will include pictures of the genealogical background of the two sides and details of the early days of their courtship right through to the wedding itself. There is the endless waiting for Kate the ring-gazing, gym regime, deportment and daily wash and blow. Then there is Wills preparations for the proposal and practice for the public announcement, not to mention the fun of the wedding preparations; drawing up the guest list, designing the menus and picking the wedding dress, while a variety of celebrity guests including Elton John, the Beckhams and Lady Gaga choose and try on their outfits for the special day. Our whistle-stop tour of the royal romance shows what everyone wishes they could see and gives us answers to questions like: How did blushing student Wills chat up Kate? How did Kate learn the tricks of the trade she needed to bag Wills and become Queen material? Ever wondered what actually happened when Wills proposed in the African bush? As for the happy couple s loved ones, how does poor old Charles feel about being upstaged by his young son with Diana s eyes and smile? We have the stag and hen nights; the arrival of the gifts from heads of states from around the world; and, of course, the shots of the The Big Day that you simply won t see anywhere else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just plain nasty. 24 Nov 2011
I read this in my local library and it's really, really nasty. It didn't make me laugh, it just made me sad. :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Kate and Wills 7 July 2011
Loved the wedding and loved this book - have bought 5 copies for friends and they have loved it too. You would have to be quite dull and prudish not to see the funny side.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lowbrow Smut disguised as Ironic Art 3 May 2011
By fodsaks
In the old sit-com, 'Hi-Di-Hi', Ted, the third-rate camp comedian's most celebrated act was his various impressions of famous people on the toilet.
We the viewer never actually got to see this performance as the camera would always pan away to the holiday camp audience laughing over their pints of brown ale while sweaty Ted went through his performance.

Spool forward to the 21st century and we have Alison Jackson basically doing exactly the same act through the medium of photography.
I'm not against her work because of any prudishness on my part, or any desire to stand up and defend the famous and wealthy from embarrasment. The fact is, her photos don't strike me as funny or in the least bit satirical, since they seem to make no commentary or critique on the celebs or public figures involved.

Oh look, it's Simon Cowell with his bum out, getting a tattoo! Oh look, there's a strip-o-gram at William's stag do (As though none of us had that mental picture anyway.) Oh look, it's Camilla in her underwear drinking a glass of wine (yawn)
Yes, very realistic lookalikes, and cleverly angled shots to make them as similar to the real people as possible... But what is the point?

Come back Ted, let's see your Queen Victoria on the toilet again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect remedy for pre-wedding nausea? 1 April 2011
An appropriate day to be reading this Royal Wedding spoof: April 1st. If you are getting a teeny bit bored with all the hype - and believe me even in Spain the Sunday supplements are getting into a frenzy about the upcoming Royal nuptials - then sit down with this new book and enjoy looking at Alison Jackson's hilarious account of Kate and Wills' romance.

PS Next to come: the 2012 Olympics?

1.0 out of 5 stars A waste of money 15 April 2011
By Rosmyk
I always enjoy a good giggle and I thought that this book would provide a little light relief from all the serious publications available in the lead-up to the Royal Wedding - but I was VERY wrong! It is not at all funny. In fact, it is nothing but gutter rubbish! There is absolutely NOTHING clever about it and the photos are of very poor quality (very fuzzy and grainy). I can't think of anyone that I would want to give it away to, so it is going in the bin!... It's a sad waste of money!

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm fairly broad minded and thought from the front cover that this book might be a nice present to send as a laugh to some friends who are "royalists" however when I received it and quickly flicked through it, I offended by some of the images. I was expecting smutty - I really wouldn't have minded that and I promise you I'm not a prude, but I would urge caution if you are buying this for someone else.

By Smiler
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A great coffee-table book, if not a bit irreverent, which brings a smile to the hardest of faces. So lifelike it's hard to think they are lookalikes. Great fun book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny book
Super funny book. The models used are perfect! However, do take care not to let young children look at it as some of the pictures are for adults only.

In some ways Alison Jackson's publicity for this book was 'the royal wedding' that kicked off 'The Royal Wedding'. Read more
