Early Life

Born in St. Mary’s Hospital in London, England on June 21, 1982, William is the eldest son of Diana, Princess of Wales and Charles, Prince of Wales. This makes him second in line to the throne after his dad! He has a younger brother, Prince Harry, who was born in 1984.

A Brave Prince

Tragedy hit William’s life in 1997 when he was only 15 years old and his younger brother Harry was 13. His mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, died in a car accident in France. His parents had divorced in 1996. The two young brothers were devastated at the loss of their mother as they were very close.

I love the book. I can't wait to see the movie. Rumor has it that Drake Bell will be playing Colin Singleton. I WAS ANNOUNCED that Ansel Elgort will be playing the role of Chase. Honestly, I love Ansel Elgort because he is a great actor, but I don't know if he will be able to play Chase,. Chase is NOTHING LIKE ANSEL!!!
