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. WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT THE ROYAL WE... 'Pages of biting humor and breathtaking glamour rewrite a fairy tale into something more satisfying than a stack of tabloids' KIRKUS. 'A breezy, juicy novel that's like The Princess Diaries with fewer made-up countries and more sex' ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. 'Royal watchers and chick-lit fans alike will delight in this sparkling tale. Pure fun' PUBLISHERS WEEKLY. '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' GLAMOUR. '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. 'A delicious romp of a royal romance' MACLEAN'S. 'A thoroughly entertaining, funny and romantic read' A SPOONFUL OF HAPPY ENDINGS. 'If you love the Royal family and a juicy tabloid read [...] you must check out The Royal We' CONFESSIONS OF A BOOK ADDICT. 'A fun, addictive read and it's one I know I will be re-reading again' STEPHANIE'S BOOK REVIEWS.

The stolen snapshot is a staple of the modern tabloid press, as ubiquitous as it is notorious. The first in-depth history of British tabloid photojournalism, this book explores the origin of the unauthorised celebrity photograph in the early 20th century, tracing its rise in the 1900s through to the first legal trial concerning the right to privacy from photographers shortly after the Second World War. Packed with case studies from the glamorous to the infamous, the book argues that the candid snap was a tabloid innovation that drew its power from Britain's unique class tensions. Used by papers such as the Daily Mirror and Daily Sketch as a vehicle of mass communication, this new form of image played an important and often overlooked role in constructing the idea of the press photographer as a documentary eyewitness. From Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson to aristocratic debutantes Lady Diana Cooper and Margaret Whigham, the rage of the social elite at being pictured so intimately without permission was matched only by the fascination of working class readers, while the relationship of the British press to social, economic and political power was changed forever.Initially pioneered in the metropole, tabloid-style photojournalism soon penetrated the journalistic culture of most of the globe. This in-depth account of its social and cultural history is an invaluable source of new research for historians of photography, journalism, visual culture, media and celebrity studies.
