Andrew Morton: Kate will not experience loveless marriage
28th April 2011
Royal author Andrew Morton has said he thinks that Kate Middleton and Prince William will have a happy marriage.
The writer, whose book Diana: Her True Story, delved into the deep unhappiness of Diana and Prince Charles' union, said there is little danger of the latest royal marriage being a loveless one.
'Kate is so much older than Diana was when she married, she is 29, the equivalent age to Prince William, she is a more mature individual and she has the support of her family and her friends which is critical because the palace can swallow you up,' he told the AFP news agency.
He added that, most importantly, Kate is marrying someone who loves her.
Morton has released a new book to coincide with tomorrow's royal wedding, William and Catherine, Their Lives, Their Wedding.
The book will only be completed on the day of the wedding before being rushed to print.
Since Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their engagement, there have been numerous comparisons between the bride-to-be and her fiancé's late mother, especially as the prince gave Kate Diana's sapphire engagement ring.
