What made the experience of listening to Prince William the most enjoyable?
The fact that it was unbiased and told the true story instead of reporting what so many other biographers have written to please the public. It revealed that royals are human beings even if they are born bluebloods. Prince William has been fortunate enough to inherit the best qualities of both parents. He has his father's sense of duty coupled with his death mother's enormous charisma. And he looks like a film star, an advantage his beleagered father never had.
This is an insider's glimpse into the lives of two future kings of England. Penny Junor, who went to boarding school with Princess Anne, knows Prince Charles and Prince William personally. Muckrakers like Kitty Kelley and Christopher Anderson have never met members of the Royal Family and do not know them, therefore they feel entitled to print unsubstantiated gossip that maligns innocent people they feel free to judge very harshly without getting their facts straight.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Both Prince William and Prince Charles, who was especially courageous after his former wife's death in 1997 when he was the target of so much intolerance and hatred.
What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
It makes the storytelling much more vivid.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
The true story of the King of Hearts.
Any additional comments?
Diana may have been the humanitarian Queen of Hearts but her true legacy has been as a young, modern mother who changed the Royal Family and the direction of the Monarchy forever.

Would you try another book from Penny Junor and/or the narrators?
I expected a book about William however I felt Diana was beaten down in this book. Statements were made without evidence or basis. I would not recommend this book.
