Win a copy of The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

The world has been fascinated by the royal love story of Prince William and Kate Middleton for the better part of a decade now. Enchanted by the fairytale quality of a prince marrying a commoner, people have carefully watched every moment from engagement to the royal wedding, the birth of Prince George, and now Kate’s second pregnancy. The hunger for information on the next generation of British royalty seems insatiable, even on this side of the Atlantic.

Now imagine if Kate wasn’t an English commoner but was, instead, an American exchange student who met Will during her year abroad by happenstance. That is the foundation for The Royal We, the fabulously fun and dishy adult debut by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan, better known as the creators of the wildly popular celebrity fashion blog Go Fug Yourself.

American Rebecca “Bex” Porter was never one for fairy-tales. She left that to her twin sister Lacey who was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it’s adventure-seeking Bex who journeys across the Atlantic to attend Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall—and thus Bex who accidentally finds herself in love with the heir to the British throne. But this is no love-at-first sight romance. Complete with a first meeting in which Bex accuses the royal family of being syphilis-ridden before learning Nick’s last name, and a friendship born of shared obsession with a trashy American TV show paired with Twinkies and Cracker Jacks, this feels like the beginning of any college relationship. Nick is everything Bex could have imagined but comes with never-ending baggage: a thorny family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a Brit.

On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex looks back on how much she’s had to give up for true love – her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself – and the many twists and turns her life has taken along the way. As Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he’s destined to become, she wonders if she and Nick are strong enough to face everything yet to come. With a cast of endearing side characters – including the loveable rogue, Prince Freddie, who can’t help but get into trouble – The Royal We is a book you will not want to put down.

Although inspired by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the book is very much its story. Packed with fully-drawn characters that readers will fall in love with, and relationships that feel real, authentic and relatable, this is pleasure-reading at its best. Spanning nearly a decade, it is a richly imagined, emotionally compelling novel that takes an honest, witty look at what happens after your prince shows up. With an incredible sense of humor, encyclopedic knowledge of the British royal family, and a plot that doesn’t slow down for a second, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan have created a world readers will have a very hard time saying goodbye to.

The Royal We is available online and at a bookstore near you.
