Also due out on May 17th is" William and Catherine- their Royal Courtship and Wedding"in photographs by David Elliot Cohen and Robert Jackson. This book promises high quality photographs of special moments. I do hope the dress is in it- a good close up of the lace would be nice. Apparently the lace was hand made which is amazing, having seen lace bobbins at work i cannot see how they are able to do it so well.
