Nothing new but may be enjoyable if you like the history of the British Monarchy. I was hoping for a lot more about the motives behind the split and what the fall out will be for the future of the Monarchy with two members doing what they want and using their Royal status to make big bucks. Seems an oxymoron supporting charities and making money for themselves.
the issue with this book is the errors throughout the authors need to check out facts like calling the Megan and Harry the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge instead of Sussex -of Harry going to Sandringham to train instead of Sandhurst there are many more It did not say much more than is already know
This book, contrary to the title, is more focused on Meghan Markle and how she attempted to disrupt the mechanics of the Royal Family. The book starts out wily-nily by telling the reader about a slew of negative incidents that Meghan reportedly created showing what a shrew she is. There was no progression (i.e., not written to any timeline). When that chapter finished, the book then was more focused and the remaining chapters were devoted to specific people and events. That made more sense.
I question the truthfulness of what was written because there were several errors that jumped out at me.....
1) the authors state that her first husband, Trevor Engelson was 6ft tall and "blonde." He was NOT blonde. 2) the authors refer to Trevor as Meghan's "husband" at a time they were not married. 3) the authors refer to Harry as "3rd in line to the throne" which is NOT true. Succession is Charles, William, George, Charlotte, Louis. 4) the authors refer to Meghan as the "Duchess of Cambridge" which is NOT true. Kate is the Duchess of Cambridge
Reading these glaring errors made me wonder how much more of the book contained items that were not truthful. I got the impression that this book was put together rather quickly to capitalize on current events.
If you decide to read this book, please read it with a grain of salt.
The book had some things that didn't make the news in the states. There were a number of cringeworthy errors---especially since the author is a Brit. 1. Charles and Diana were NOT married in the same church as William and Catherine. 2. Camilla's first husband was not ANTHONY Parker Bowles. 3. Diana's step mother was NOT Raine McQuorkadale. (sic). That is the last name of her sister's husband. 4. Harry and Meghan are not, have not, and never will be The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, despite being referred to as such several times by the author.
Doesn't anyone proof read anymore? These errors were glaring to this American. I can't imagine someone from the UK just overlooking them.
Keep in mind the entire book is just commonly known stories and speculations already told numerous times. I also feel like the author's opinion is heavily splattered across the pages of the book. Examples include and are not limited to: SPECULATING that racism was one of the reasons for Harry's big split. His opinion is also shown with the way each character is portrayed. Meghan was made to be a demanding social climber who was often difficult. All in all, a moderately fun read if you closely follow the royals to create an inner debate at almost every turn of the page.
This book has even margins and an easy-to-read typeface. The spacing is wide and it does not strain one's eyes to read this book. The binding appears high quality and the glossy sleeve protecting the hardback has an attractive graphic design.
This is a five-star book, but I'm forced to deduct two stars for content.
I was really hoping this wouldn’t be another “sugary fake let’s praise MEgain because she pays us to” book and honestly I only made to page 15 it was boring and seemed like another Omid Scobie book and if I would’ve known that I wouldn’t of wasted money on it
This book has a hard black cover. The book case is shiny and glossy. The pages are thick and pictures are included. The book is about how Megan and Harry came to leave the Royal Family. It has a "juicy gossip" feel.
