Kate: The Making of a Princess begins very much like a family history of Kate's early relatives dating back to the early 1800s. If you like genealogy, you will like reading this book as the beginning is nothing like any other royal biography. While I applaud the amount of research that had to go into this book, since there was not much written about her relatives it does tend to read more like a series of facts (name, date of birth, occupation, who they married... next person) than like a story. However, they do tie in a lot of historical detail to paint a descent picture of what life would have been like as a coal miner in 1840, for example. The second half of the book is more like a typical royal biography. While Joseph ties in events in Kate’s life that correspond to what William was experiencing around the same time the focus is still on Kate – which is more than can be said of other biographies that claim to be about Kate but end up retelling Diana’s final days.
