Book Review: "The Royal We"

   The Royal We
   Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

A fictional love story between the future King of England and young American woman (with striking similarities to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge), The Royal We is a sweet love story.  Opening with Bex (Rebecca) entering Oxford University as a transfer student and unfolding many years later with her and Nick’s wedding, The Royal We shows why the British people view royalty as a duty, rather than a privilege.

Perhaps because I’m a bit of an Anglophile, I stayed up way too late too many nights reading this novel.  It’s an easy read with engaging characters that shows just how difficult it is to be the future King and Queen of England.  Between the sycophants, paparazzi and monarchy’s expectations, it’s stunning to me that anyone can fill either of these roles.  If you’re looking for an enjoyable escape, The Royal We will fulfill your expectations!
