Royally Riveting

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's Royal Tour to Canada this summer garnered much media attention. We were checking news sites daily to see what Wills and Kate had been up to for the day, and of course, also checking out what Kate was wearing.

Get our take on William and Kate: A Royal Love Story by Christoper Andersen and find out how you can enter to win your very own copy!

Ordinary Couple, Extraordinary Lifestyle
Are you a fan of the Royals? Then you'll want to add William and Kate: A Royal Love Story (Simon and Schuster) by Christopher Andersen to your reading list, which offers a revealing look into the nearly decade-long relationship between the handsome prince and captivating "commoner" who won his heart. Andersen's book gives us a glimpse into various aspects of the royal couple's lives, including seeing how William's closeness with his mother, the late Princess Diana, has shaped his relationship with Kate. We also learn the details of the lengths the couple went to to keep their affair secret during their time as together as university students. Despite being one of the most written about, talked about, admired, and envied couple of their generation, perhaps what we are most enthralled by is the fact that Wills and Kate are just like any other couple—they have their ups and downs, but their genuine love and affection for one another is what helps them get through it all.
