As the world first became aware of the growing friendship and love between this couple it became clear that Harry had met someone very special to share his life. This book is the tale on how the dashing Prince Harry met and fell in love with the beautiful American actress. As well as looking at their differing backgrounds and childhoods it explores the main influences as they grew up in very different parts of the world.
