"I'd been carrying around the ring with me....I would not let it go. You hear a lot of horror stories about proposing and things go horribly wrong, but it went really, really well." --HRH, Prince William of Wales

The marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton is one of the most significant royal events of recent times. As second in line to the throne, the elder son of the much mourned Diana, Princess of Wales-whose famous sapphire and diamond engagement ring he bestowed on his future bride-William embodies the hopes and expectations of millions of people around the world. And as a "commoner" who will become a princess, Catherine brings romance and freshness to a very traditional union.
Acclaimed biographer Andrew Morton, who was trusted by Diana herself to recount her true story to the outside world, has been covering Prince William since birth. Now he brings his unique insights to this portrait of the histories and characters of the bride and groom-from their family backgrounds, their childhoods, and the early days of their relationship at university, through their ups and downs as a couple in the public eye, their private engagement in Kenya, and all the glamour and drama of the wedding itself. Lavishly illustrated with color photographs, both a chronicle and a lasting memento of a day to remember, William & Catherine brings us both the public spectacle and the private moments as only the author of Diana: Her True Story can reveal them.

...The text has no great surprises and there are the usual sprinkling of close but unnamed sources supporting the edgier remarks.

I give it three months on coffee tables, where it will gather dust in time for the Dummies' spring-clean and then it will be shoved in a bookcase and never seen again.
