American Princess: The Love Story of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry | Leslie Carroll
15 posts | 6 read | 1 reading | 13 to read
A behind-the-scenes look into the life of Meghan Markle and her romance with Prince Harrya dishy, delightful must-read filled with exclusive insights for anyone obsessed with the Royal Family. Leslie Carrolls books on royalty are an irresistible combination of People Magazine and the History Channel.Chicago Tribune When Prince Harry of Wales took his American girlfriend, Meghan Markle, to have tea with his grandmother the queen, avid royal watchers had a hunch that a royal wedding was not far off. That prediction came true on November 27, 2017, when the gorgeous, glamorous twosome announced their engagement to the world. As they prepare to tie the knot in a stunning ceremony on May 19, 2018, that will be unprecedented in royal history, people are clamoring to know more about the beautiful American who captured Prince Harrys heart. Born and raised in Los Angeles to a white father of German, English, and Irish descent and an African American mother whose ancestors had been enslaved on a Georgia plantation, Meghan has proudly embraced her biracial heritage. In addition to being a star of the popular television series Suits, she is devoted to her humanitarian worka passion she shares with Harry. Though Meghan was married once before, Prince Harry is a modern royal, and the Windsors have welcomed her into the tight-knit clan they call The Firm. Even a generation ago, it would have been unthinkable, as well as impermissible, for any member of Great Britains royal family to consider marrying someone like Meghan. Professional actresses were considered scandalous and barely respectable. And the last time an American divorcee married into the Royal Family, it provoked a constitutional crisis! In American Princess, Leslie Carroll provides context to Harry and Meghans romance by leading readers through centuries of Britains rule-breaking royal marriages, as well as the love matches that were never permitted to make it to the altar; followed by a never-before-seen glimpse into the little-known life of the woman bringing the Royal Family into the 21st century; and her dazzling, thoroughly modern romance with Prince Harry.

I love the British Royal family, so I couldn‘t resist adding these to my royals bookshelf. Can‘t wait to read them, but a few library due dates are standing in my way! #royals #funreads

Reviewsbylola Ooooh I‘ll have to check these out. Ever since my trip to London a few months ago I‘m a bit obsessed with the royals. 5y
MallenNC @Reviewsbylola I studied abroad in the U.K. in college and I've loved the royals ever since. I have a lot of books about royals from history, and just a few about the modern ones. These seem like they'll be fun 5y

This book's tagline is "The love story of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry" but there wasnt much love story. They don't meet until 145 pages in. It's more a history if both families and of England itself.

She is most certainly a commoner. A professional actress, in fact.... She's divorced. She's biracial.... A British prince chose to marry a biracial divorced American actress. The last time a British royal insisted on marrying an American divorcee, it nearly provoked a constitutional crisis.

4⭐️ Megan and Harry are breaking so many royal traditions that it‘s impossible to keep count. Leslie Carroll does a fabulous job w this book . She explains about the first time that Meghan and Harry openly broke royal protocol by being openly affectionate, having their arms around each other waist, during their first official royal engagement. https://lharvey250.tumblr.com/post/173171027114/american-princess-the-love-story...

By about 50 pages into this book, I was feeling pretty ticked at the author, so maybe it colored the rest of my reading experience. But I couldn't get past her moral judgments, which I felt were inapporpriate in a book like this. Plus way too much repetition in the story and her phrasing and the fact that in one breath she's talking about Meghan giving a speech about sexism while going on to describe what she wore and how she wore it...yuck.

She has used the phrase "stumbled bleary-eyed into the night" at least 3 times so far in the 99 pages I've read. Someone get this woman a thesaurus. ?

Aimeesue Gah! I hate that. I was reading a Minette Walters book not long ago and one character “pulled a face” at least 25 times throughout the book. Drove me nuts. 5y
Eyelit Lazy writing is so frustrating! 5y
Traci1 @laurenashley @ju.ca.no @Aimeesue @Eyelit unfortunately this isn't even her worst transgression. Using 14 words when 5 would suffice, and way too much moral judgment in what is meant to be like a biography. I feel like it should be mostly facts, yet she's spent a large portion of this book about Harry and Meghan to say how big an ass she thinks Prince Charles is. 5y
ju.ca.no @Traci1 oh my.. that sounds horrible🙈 5y
Traci1 @ju.ca.no I'm trying to get to the point where Harry and Meghan meet and hoping it'll get better. Some of it is interesting at least. 5y
ju.ca.no @Traci1 well that‘s something...I‘m having my fingers crossed it will get better! (edited) 5y
Aimeesue @Traci1 Aaarrrrgh! And to use a phrase like "The Queen was not amused" is just annoying and super extra clichéd, especially when you're obvs trying to be arch and ain't hittin' it. Yuck. 5y
TheRomantiCate “The Queen was not amused.” Neither am I... 🙄🙄🙄 5y

Reading the chapter entitled Goodbye, Mummy while sitting waiting for my to go order was not the smartest decision I've made today. Chanting to myself "don't cry in public... don't cry in public..."

The chanting didn't work. ?
