    One thought on “Kate: A Biography”

    1. Not horrible, but certainly not great. There were a lot of rambling lists of fashion designers, random friends' names, names of charities, etc. And there were quite a few parts where the author would bring attention to something negative that has been said about Kate and then say something like, "This is a perfect example of someone who does not know Kate personally, blah blah blah." I like Kate Middleton as much as the next person, but I don't need to be convinced about why the haters are wrong [...]

    2. Estive indecisa entre as 3 e as 4, mas acabei por optar pelas 4.A Kate sempre foi uma figura que chamou a atenção. Há algo nela que me cativa e fiquei curiosa por saber mais sobre ela. Quando vi este livro, não pensei duas vezes. Tive receio que fosse aborrecido (e confesso que tornou-se um bocado no fim, quando começou a relatar as obrigações reais e os eventos e as marcas ) mas não. O livro cativou-me, prendeu-me e adorei conhecer o antes dela. Adorei mesmo! Nunca a imaginei desportist [...]

    3. Although it was a fairly enjoyable book, a quick and easy read, I gave it a lower rating because it really wasn't anything new. There didn't appear to be any first hand information, the author quoted interviews and newspaper articles and anecdotes that have become well known. There were also errors both typos and factual ones including giving the date of Princess Diana's birthday as July 7. It wasn't a trashy sort of tell all, and didn't try to portray Kate or her family as a bunch of greedy soc [...]

    4. This was a very enlightening biography about the woman who has done so much to revitalize the public image and global acceptance of the royal family. Kate truly does mark a crucial moment in the history of the British royal line not only because of her "common" upbringing and bloodlines but because of the fresh new modern feel she takes with her wherever she goes. This book provided some interesting information about her childhood that I have never read about before and it even includes some col [...]

    5. Kate a biography, written by Marcia Moody, is the biography of Princess of Whales and England Kate Middleton. It tells the story before she came of royalty. Kate lived a normal life in England, and it was in college when she met the love of her life; Prince William of England. It shows how their relationship developed and how she never dreamt of becoming a princess. I would use this book in a high school classroom. I think a creative lesson to use this book would be in a world history class. If [...]

    6. One of the worst books I have ever read. For the most part it's nothing more than a summary of Kate's royal engagements and her wardrobe. Also the author seems to be such a big fan of Kate that even though she mentions criticism of her but in each case it is simply dismissed as false, but with very weak arguments against it. Very poorly edited as well, there's hardly a page where there's not a word missing or a typo. Don't waste your money on this!!

    7. A guilty pleasure read, but really wasn't that pleasurable. I would have enjoyed reading far more about her experiences growing up, rather than rambling lists of charity events and clothing designers. Also: when it came to describe her visit to Ottawa Canada, much of the events and activities described were not accurate (I lived a few blocks from Rideau Hall at the time) and it left me doubting the accuracy of everything else I was reading.

    8. Easy to pick up and put down or continually read. Not normally a royalty follower, just had a wish to read.Like others I could have easily read more about Kate's childhood, however it makes you realise how carefully Kate has to make choices or not make them once William and her are together, incase she became a royal. I really felt for her on occasions. I is worth reading.

    9. Li em português, mas não encontro aqui a edição.Uma biografia muito detalhada e simpática.Gostei especialmente de ler como os príncipes se conhecerem e como foi o inicio do namoro.Quem gosta de seguir a vida dos monarcas de Inglaterra (pois no livro acaba por falar de toda a família)deve ler este livro.

    10. Some interesting insight into her early life and the world she has been introduced into, although the high amount of shockingly obvious spelling and grammar errors made me wonder if the author was just as careless with her research and facts.

    11. This book was disappointing. I was hoping to learn more about Kate herself, especially her early years, not the evolution of her clothing styles and designer preferences.You will not be missing anything if you should never pick this book to read.

    12. Princess Kate's historyVery well done. The author gave us a good description of her introduction to the royal family. Great historical reading.

    13. It's OK. Fairly easy and somewhat interesting to read and/or skim. One entire chapter dedicated to clothes and accessories is a bit much.

    14. Enjoyed but did find things a little dull at timesough I imagine it's difficult to write a biography for someone in their 30's.

    15. Fun, quick read. Author is very pro-Kate and not too much in there you wouldn't get from reading elsewhere, but fun.

    16. As far as pages, I felt like Elle Woods in 'Legally Blonde' on 179. Reading this felt like taking a test. Chapter Eleven had me wondering the following: what. does. this. have. to. do. with. Kate?? Reminds me of this. Chapter Eleven was called 'Her Royal Hotness,' and had nothing to do with Kate. It was about her sister Phillipa, more known as Pippa. This chapter also towards the end didn't have anything to do with Pippa, and ignored the title of the chapter when it swerved to talking about Kate [...]

    17. I love Kate Middleton (who doesn’t?), but this book is not well written. There are grammatical errors and a lot of fluff.

    18. This is not the greatest book, but I did find out a lot about Kate Middelton and how she met Prince William and I learned a lot about her life.
