The author is fair to the Middleton family, which I liked. It made a refreshing change, as the press so often portrays them as just ruthless social climbers. He rightly draws attention to their discretion and how well they have dealt with press scrutiny. He is also refreshingly sympathetic to the new Duchess' lack of a career, making the point that realistically, it would have been very difficult for her to have a job with the flexibility that she required.
But, sometimes I felt that the author wasn't as questioning or as cynical as he could have been. It just seems too much of a coincidence that Kate went to the same place on her gap year as William and then suddenly decided to change her University choice to the University that William was going to. Even if Kate's family couldn't completely engineer what happened between her and William, it does seem like they did everything possible to help things along.
I also found it difficult to swallow the idea that sporty, tall and pretty Kate would have been a target for bullies. Talking as a woman who was bullied and knows what girls are like, I really can't see it. Since the bullying stories came out, others have said that they're not true, so I don't think the bullying should be treated as 'fact.' Maybe I'm wrong, but I can't help wondering if these stories were distortions or exaggerations of the truth, in order to find some 'struggle' in Kate's life.
I actually came away from the book not being jealous of Kate Middleton (or the Duchess as she is now!), but kind of admiring her for how well she has handled her position up to now and what she is taking on. On the whole, this book is worth a read.

Quite a good read and,unlike a lot of royal biographies, not written as if the author is some sort of priest worshipping at the temple of some God-like entities.Published on 10 Jan. 2013 by Philip Brown
