I'm sorry but it is rather far-fetched to assume that in ten years, HM Elizabeth will have died and shortly followed by Charles allowing William to take the throne. IF William marries Kate or whoever he marries, there families will always be prey to the press. Nothing the royal family can do about it. But I don't think Diana or Sarah's family were particularly harrassed when they were married to their husbands.

My Questions:
1. Why do you think William has stayed with one girl all his life?
2. Do you think it is feasable that Harry will marry first?
3. Would you rather William be King rather than Charles?
4. Why do you choose now to release the book?

You'll find that the publisher determines a book's release date, not the author.

Perhaps ... but William will definitely have an important role.
I would think it to be unwise not to take actions to protect her family. The press is more agressive than in Diana and Fergie's time.
I just wondered if Kate's family is checked like the family of Princess Micheal of Kent...

In which case the question should be more along the lines of Why did you write this book now?

My questions would be 'Will this have anything new or will it just rehash what is already known about the princes, their relationships with each other, their parents, their partners etc?'

As someone who's researched William and Harry a lot, what do you think? If they aren't engaged now, will they ever get engaged?
I can tell you what katie will say to your last question. Of course she will say "yes" as she's been peddling this relationship for a long time as most of the press has. She's not going to all of sudden contradict herself. According to the excerpt from her book she implies that they will.
I personally don't put any stock in what she says.

Members may post one question, as Andy R made known at the top of the page

So which will it be?

Katie Nicholl-

Are Prince William and Ms Middleton, after the Prince finishes training, going to get married and live married on base in Wales?

Can not wait to read your book.

I saw you on the Joy Behar show recently talking out the Duchess of York. I really like that show

I suppose the only question I have is what sort of king does William want to be?

William paid 20 pounds not 200 pounds for a ticket at St Andrew's Don't Walk fashion show!

Is it possible for William to become the King of England instead of Charles?

No - the only way Charles doesn't become King is if he doesn't outlive his mother.

In addition - why would William want to be King instead of the father he absolutely adores? It always bugs me when people assume that William would be privy to this idea as he so clearly admires and loves his father and basically what you are asking is - Would William stop his father from having his birthright?

A newspaper that publishes false claims is liable to libel, even if it's only publishing extracts from a book, especially if these claims are presented as fact without an editorial disclaimer.

Also, it's highly unlikely that Random House was the reason the article got pulled.
No national publication would ever risk a costly copyright infringement lawsuit by publishing large extracts from a book without authorisation.
The Nicholl article was part of a serialisation deal that was beneficiary to all involved (exposure and money for Nicholl, free publicity for Random House, web traffic and print sales for the Mail).

The second reason you gave is likely but so is mine, I maintain, especially since it has happened before, with the debunked 'pearl earring' story.

I will quote from the British publication Private Eye to highlight my point. In both cases, I only typed a small part of the item to comply to the forum rules. The full articles can be accessed by buying the issues.

Private Eye
no. 1259 (2 to 15 April 2010), page 28 :
Quote:
Alas! This riveting yarn [The dog story] (...) swiftly collapsed (...).
The MoS has covered its embarrassment by removing all trace of the story from its website (...).
For the past few months [Katie Nicholl] has been busy writing William and Harry (...), and the dog story was one of the sensational "scoops" due to be included in the book.
Private Eye no. 1263 (current issue), page 6:
Quote:
(...) As well as being diary editor, Katie was made royal correspondent of the MoS a few months ago as a special favour to give her book some credibility. Not that it's worked: some royal aides refuse to speak to her on the grounds that her track record as a gossip columnist is a catalogue of writs, fabrications and general nonsense.
Members are completely free to judge for themselves the level of credibility or possible value of Katie's book.
Personally, I'll find another summer reading.

Thanks to everyone who contributed.

The publisher is pressing us for the questions so the thread is now closed to allow time for the best ones to be chosen.

Prince Harry and the girl from Boujis... (and the TV presenter, the Canadian waitress and the girl from Sky Sports) | Mail Online

I think this is a very long article about Harry's love life, and how Chelsy is the one.

Actually I think the article is more about how Harry supposedly never let being in a relationship with Chelsy stop him having fun times with other girls. I wonder if this is more from the book.

I have no idea who Emma Lippiatt is, never heard of her before. It is possible information from the book.

Prince Harry and the girl from Boujis... (and the TV presenter, the Canadian waitress and the girl from Sky Sports) | Mail Online

Possible another article that links to the book, seeing as there was one earlier on about Williams past girlfriends. Again I have never heard of Emma Lippiatt.

I would hope, for the punters who will buy it, that it's not.

I browsed through the article and it was a rehash of DM stories, most of whom are still probably on their websites and accessible though the search section.
Just the laziest form of 'journalism'.

I remember that girl from many years ago. Harry was still at Eton. She was a blonde girl in the polo set. She may have been one of the Westonbirt? School girls. I think that's the name of the school..... It's near Highgrove, I think.

Quite right. I don't know why anyone would give Katie Nicholl any credibility. She is a tabloid journalist. Reliable sources? I hardly think so! She's the one afterall who did that silly story about the dog eating the pearl earring, which after proven to be untrue the Daily Mail had to pull the story. She more than likely pieced together all of the tabloid stories from the past years and condensed them into this book.
And where does she get off making the claim (in her excerpt) that Harry reads her column? I doubt Harry or William waste their time reading the tabloids. Such rubbish!
