In 2018 the e-book format of NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES was reissued, to feature two brand new chapters just in time for the most modern, groundbreaking royal wedding in the history of Britain’s thousand-year-old monarchy!
Ever since the tragic death of Princess Diana in a Paris tunnel in August 1997, royal watchers the world over have hoped for a happily-ever-after for the two young sons she left behind to mourn her. William was fifteen and Harry a twelve-year-old boy on the brink of adolescence. Each coped in his own way and it didn’t always work out so well. Finally, each prince found the perfect wife; both women are commoners, both the same age, both beautiful, intelligent, steady, and loyal; but in many ways Catherine Middleton and Meghan Markle are also worlds apart from each other, in personality and in life experience.
One new chapter focuses on the courtship and marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, their young family, and what the couple has been doing since their glamorous nuptials on April 29, 2011.
The final chapter places the spotlight on Prince Harry and his journey to happiness. He ultimately found his soulmate in another child of divorce—Meghan Markle—a woman who happened to check off many boxes that were once considered absolutely taboo for British royal brides. Three years older than Harry, Meghan is a biracial American divorcee who was educated at a Catholic high school. She has enjoyed a successful career as a professional actress and has secured her bona fides as a humanitarian, working with charities that bring clean water to undeveloped countries, and globally as an outspoken advocate for women’s and girls’ educational and economic rights. This daughter of Southern California may become a duchess, and a true American Princess (titled Princess Henry of Wales); but it’s doubtful one will ever be able to take the beach, the avocados and the yoga out of the woman who will, along with Harry, help make the British monarchy continue to be relevant to a global society in the decades to come.
Readers of the NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES revised e-book will enjoy 20% more new content – material that they will not find in any other of Leslie Carroll’s nonfiction “royal” titles (including AMERICAN PRINCESS), making the 2018 e-book edition of NOTORIOUS ROYAL MARRIAGES a terrific companion volume to them.
