We have hear Mike's voice twice. Carole once. Pippa's never and Kate only after her engagement.

Without Kate at St Andrews,William probably leaves after his first year. Goes to Sandhurst early and becomes more young Harry like with heavy drinking and clubs. It was credited to Kate for keeping William at St Andrews
If you believe that the Middletons don't discuss Will and Kate I point you to the Twitter account of a pap named Niraj Tanna. Most particularly from the period Nov. 8 to Dec. 3, 2012 and then to the late evening of July 21st. He seems privy to some rather interesting information even before the Queen.

I just purchased the Katie Nicholl book because your review made it sound imperfect but fun to read.

I'm enjoying this book even though parts of it are silly conjecture (such as what Kate was thinking when she walked down the aisle) and other parts are inaccurate- (William having to ask the Queen for Diana's ring because it was part of the Queen's collection)


I enjoyed learning more about how Party Pieces started and how Kate's school fees were paid, since some have in the past, insinuated Uncle Gary must have paid for them.
