Book on the future Queen of England – gosh they’re fast…

When browsing at the bookshop a couple of weeks back not long after the announcement of the royal engagement between Prince William and Kate Middleton, I saw this title on the shelves:

Heck, they were really fast, weren’t they – already coming out with a “The makings of a princess” book barely a month after the announcement, also remembering that it would have taken a while longer to reach Singapore and it’s already on the shelves here!

There’s only one part of the book that I thought was seriously in bad taste and showed a lack of judgement – the photo section. Most of the photos were nicely done, but these two were just a blatant attempt to sell books…

I cannot imagine how they allowed these pictures of her through to publication. It’s one thing to be portrayed in a bikini or swimsuit, but in a state of undress and in lingerie (particularly the top one with another guy) is just fodder for controversy.

Maybe I’m being a prude, but I find these incredibly distasteful. What’s your take?

I bet they already had the book contents and photos etc laid-out nicely in draft and they were just waiting for the official announcement before rushing it off to print! Hahaha! Well, distasteful and scandalous as the photos may be, it shows she's also just as human as your regular Brit girl around town, but she'll do well to stay away from questionable activities hereonwards now that her status is upgraded :P
