This was such an adorable, sweet and quirky feel-good rom com! I binge-read this book in one sitting, so smitten by the wonderful characters and the fun and charming story with a royal twist!
The story follows Australian lawyer Amelia Glendale, who’s spent her life swooning about the British royals (especially the youngest of the princes, Leo) and who’s landed her dream job in London at the Queen’s Charitable Foundation. But when the queen dies, Amelia finds herself now working for her long-time crush and his stuffy older brother Prince Edmund. Thrown into the princes’ orbit though, Amelia discovers that maybe the perfect man for her isn’t the prince she expected…
This was such a funny (laugh-out-loud even) and smart rom com, completely adorable! I loved the main character Amelia so much and how witty and sarcastic she was and how little impressed she was by the upper-crust people (except for being a bit too star-struck to speak to Prince Leo the first time she met him…) and the stuffy traditions. She came across as a little too naïve at times though, and the story was perhaps a little unrealistic, but it didn’t really matter when the story overall was so well and charmingly executed.
I also really loved so many of the other characters, like Amelia’s best friend Penny and the hilarious royal princess cousins Lucy and Emma.
All in all, this was an adorable and fast-paced feel-good story with a swoon-worthy romance, wonderful friendships and lovable characters, and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series to find out what happens next!

I live in Australia with my husband and three small humans. In my seventeen seconds of free time each day I love reading romantic comedies, watching cheesy Netflix movies and baking cakes which I absolutely do not eat most of myself.
