Good news! The paperback of The Royal We is out in the world a week from tomorrow, April 26th — and, in a lovely piece of synergy, Wills’ and Kate’s fifth anniversary is also next week, and we are currently in the UK enjoying all manner of wonderful British and royal goodness. We’ll definitely be writing about much of that here on GFY, but you can also follow along on our Twitter, and respective Instagrams (this is Heather’s, and this is mine), as well as on our nascent and perhaps totally cracked out Snapchat (we’re FugGirls), and basically everywhere on the internet where we can normally be found. (We’re going to take a copy of the book to visit a variety of vital locations in the book, obviously. It needs to visit Windsor. Windsor is very important.)
But while you’ll soon be able to buy the paperback basically everywhere you’d go to buy a paperback — Amazon; Barnes & Noble; your friendly local bookstore; and, conveniently for everyone, TARGET! — we wanted to do a giveaway here on GFY in advance of its release, to celebrate. We’re giving away five autographed copies and ONE OF YOU will get a special prize pack of goodies we’ll pick out for you while we’re here in the UK.
If you’re curious about the book, you can find out more about it here. We can’t wait for you to take the paperback to the pool and spill your margarita all over it. Seriously. Bex would want you to.
THE TASK: I will be choosing the winners at random, but to keep it fun, please give a thought on the following and share: You are REQUIRED to marry a king or queen — of any country of your choosing, alive or dead; our only requirement is that this person be real. NAME THAT RULER.
THE RULES: Enter as many times as you want. All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday. FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you — although it might take a little time, because we’re not at our desks much this week. (Prizing courtesy of the box of books in my living room; contest open to everyone.)
