Product Description

How much would you give up for true love?

Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister is the romantic who fantasizes about glamour, fame and fortune – Bex has always been a tomboy. So when she spends a year at Oxford, and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, she is the only girl not interested in dating the future king.

But eventually Bex can't resist falling for Nick, and as their friendship turns to romance, Bex becomes immersed in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace – a world away from her humble upbringing.

The relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick's sparkling ex-girlfriends, and a family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he's fated to become.

A hilarious romantic comedy from the authors of gofugyourself.com.

'In the grand tradition of Curtis Sittenfeld's American Wife.... A breezy, juicy novel that's like The Princess Diaries with fewer made-up countries and more sex-the kind of book you can imagine Pippa sneaking into Kensington Palace' Entertainment Weekly.

'Every bit as engrossing as the real Kate and Will... The pages turn as easily as a tabloid feature on the royal couple – and you'll end up just as obsessed with Bex and Nick as you already are with Wills and Kate' Glamour.

'Royal watchers and chick-lit fans alike will delight in this sparkling tale. Pure fun' Publishers Weekly.

'A joy from start to finish. THE ROYAL WE is that rare novel that makes you think, makes you cry, and is such fun to read that you'll want to clear your schedule until you've turned the final page. But be warned – Cocks and Morgan have created a world so rich, a romance so compelling, and characters so funny and alive, that you'll be terribly sad to see them go' J. COURTNEY SULLIVAN, New York Times-bestselling author of The Engagements and Maine.

'Pages of biting humor and breathtaking glamour rewrite a fairy tale into something more satisfying than a stack of tabloids' Kirkus.

'Nick and Bex's story is engaging and heartwarming and sometimes gasp-out-loud juicy, but... underneath the frothy exterior is sharp look at the clash between modern women and the ways they are portrayed' The Millions.

I have been in a reading dry spell lately. So, a fluffy romance was just what I needed.

The Royal We was a perfect choice; I had been eyeing the book on audible for awhile, and I finally decided to give it a try.

I found that the Royal We captured my attention at the beginning of the story and held on until the end. I had a difficult time putting the book down at night. The plot to this book a blatantly obvious parallel to Will and Kate.

The plot to this book is a blatantly obvious parallel to Will and Kate; which, as a Royal Family enthusiast, I found wonderfully charming to read.

The characters were quirky, and appealing to the reader. My only complaint with the characters is that I found Bex's twin to be irritating and narcissistic. However, it was not enough of an issue to ruin the book.

Additionally, I believe that Christine Lakin did an excellent job narrating the story. I would listen to more books narrated by her.

Overall, this was a cute story that didn't have a deep or complex plot; perfect for summer.

I would, without a doubt, recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fluffy, fairytale romance.

‘The Royal We’ is the new book from authors Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan – also known as the Fuggirls who run ‘Go Fug Yourself’, the comedy blog devoted to fashion and celebrity.

I love the Fuggirls – I’ve long been a fan of their blog, which is more funny than vicious when it comes to celebrity fashion commentary. And I loved their debut novel, a young adult fare called ‘Spoiled’. Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s novel writing has been a seamless transition from their blog writing; with all of their wit and sparking humor translating well to fiction. ‘The Royal We’ is not another YA book, instead it’s a chick-lit royal romance … sort of Meg Cabot’s ‘Princess Diaries’ for adults, if you will.

The very clever (American) cover hints at what this story is riffing off of – royal fever, thanks to Kate and Wills. It’s the story of American exchange student Rebecca ‘Bex’ Porter who spends a year at Oxford studying art, where she is share-housed with his royal highness Prince Nicholas … the book covers eight years in the friendship-turned-romance of Bex and Nick. Intriguingly the prologue begins near to their wedding day, with Bex receiving vaguely threatening text messages and anticipating a scandal of epic proportions – then it backtracks to their first meeting in 2007. Bex tells her side of their love-story, occasionally using the framework of an unauthorized biography ‘The Bexicon’ to separate their far messier reality from the fairytale fiction that abounds.

Clever cover aside, ‘The Royal We’ is not a chick-lit rip-off of Kate Middleton and Prince William’s romance. In ‘The Royal We’, Cocks and Morgan have cleverly created an alternate British history for these royal Lyons.

This is a story about an alternate royal family in England and the grandson and heir to the throne (sound familiar?) Nick and his long term relationship with Bex or Rebecca. Insightful, funny, silly and the loneliness sometimes of being the Royal girlfriend. The story line dragged a bit when they broke up, the blackmail a tad tedious but overall a good read.

This is a thoroughly enjoyable chick lit read. All of the characters are believable and feel genuine. It's an engaging story taken from real life that is often witty and sometimes moving. Despite it being fiction it's provided a real incite into life inside The Firm.

I LOVED this book; it was funny (so, so funny), moving at times and beautifully crafted. Heather and Jessica have delivered a gorgeous, funny novel that (almost) makes you forget where the inspiration came from. Cannot recommend highly enough - a riotous read.
