"The characters should all be familiar: the heir to the British throne, his mischievous younger brother, his granny and the pretty commoner he meets in college. But in this version by bloggers Cocks and Morgan (a.k.a. the Fug Girls), the girl is American. Nick and Bex's love story is so fun and dishy, you'll hope for a sequel--with royal babies."--People
"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
"Hysterical."--Entertainment Weekly, "The Must List"
"Cute, well-written, and perfect for summer. . . . I loved it."--Buzzfeed, "29 Books You Should Definitely Bring to the Beach This Summer"
"An entertaining read-but also a sharp critique of how we treat celebrities and what happens to people always in the paparazzi glare . . . Cocks and Morgan also know that daydreams should stay daydreams because the reality is much harsher. That's what elevates The Royal We from just a good beach book to a beach book with a message--while remaining entertaining enough to keep your butt in your beach chair."--Philadelphia Inquirer
"Pages of biting humor and breathtaking glamour rewrite a fairy tale into something more satisfying than a stack of tabloids."--Kirkus
"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
"THE ROYAL WE is as engrossing and deeply satisfying as any royal wedding documentary, and it's a thousand times more fun, from the fairy tale to the inevitable foibles. You will want Bex Porter to be your best friend. You will feel the same way about Cocks and Morgan, who are warm, witty, hilarious, and moving in their depiction of a very complicated relationship indeed."--Jen Doll, author of Save the Date
"Readers should prepare to lose their hearts to THE ROYAL WE, a loving satire that is scandalously funny and wonderfully romantic." ---Bookpage
LOVING PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE’S ENGAGEMENT?
Fall in love with the perfect book to feed your royal addiction... where an unassuming American meets the future king of England...
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.
