Other than that, my mam seemed quite happy with the actual book, so if you insist on buying the more expensive version, then sure, this is good too. However, I suggest that you save money and confusion by buying Kate: the Making of a Princess. :)
The backcover states that this book is the "definitive biography of Britain's newest princess". But the book is just too short to back up this claim.
Much of the early chapters follow the accounts of Kate's ancestors from the early 19th century, just as Queen Victoria came to the throne, and up to recent times. This is interesting and well-written. The problem is that that there so many names (with at least five families) that it is sometimes a little hard to follow, though there is a family tree in the appendix.
This would be a good book for people learning English (like foreign students) who also want a brief introduction into recent British culture.
However, this is not a great in-depth anaysis of Kate Middleton as is Diana's Nightmare - The Family of Princess Diana. At just over 265 pages all we get is an introduction into Kate Middleton's family, how she met Prince William and the fact (spoiler ahead) that they married.
There will, I hope, be better books about Kate in the future. Let's hope they give us jucier details than this book. I can't wait to see the biography about Prince Harry: Viva Las Vegas! Royals and their sex lives: Why else do we have them unless we read about what they REALLY get up to?
