    Repetitive and Bland

    There are certain aspects about the book to appreciate like the psychological and developmental underpinnings of the couple. She tried to be as objective as she could giving credit where it was due and critiquing when it was appropriate. One issue with the book was that it was repetitive ad nauseam. There were literal sentences that would repeat themselves word for word. I don't know if she just didn't have enough material to fill the book or what, but I found myself skipping whole pages. I've read other books by Lady C that kept my attention and were really well paced and interesting reads. However this book just didn't pass muster. At times it felt like she was trying too hard to prop them up and it just came across as a bit of a try-hard. I also found the comparisons between Britain and America to be overly simplistic and oftentimes inaccurate. She made it sound like all of America, in her words "cottoned to", the Sussexes because Americans have no comprehension of the Royal Family. The way social media is now with the various forums and platforms, many around the world can share more information and inside info about public figures than ever before. The public is no longer a stooge for PR exercises and the internet is forever. If she had spent more time breaking that down, I think it would be a more interesting read. Maybe it just goes to show that they're not a very interesting subject and that is why the book floundered in many places
