The Coronation: Literary Edition

by | May 8, 2023

Dear Paige, if The British Family was a best-selling book, what book character would each of them be?

Royal fever is in the air as Prince Charles’ coronation quickly approaches. What better way to celebrate than by imagining a handful of Her late Majesty’s family transformed into beloved book characters? Let me guide you through this magical mash-up, picking out the perfect classic match for everyone from Prince Charles to The Duchess of Sussex.

London, UK – April, 2019: English guard patrolling in London. Solider of Buckingham palace, London England. Queen’s Guard – Buckingham Palace.

Kate Middleton – Jane Re from “The Stationery Shop” by Marjan Kamali: Jane Re is a character who is intelligent, hardworking, and quietly determined. Like Kate Middleton, she also values education and is passionate about empowering young people to achieve their goals.

Prince William – Hercule Poirot from “Murder on the Orient Express” by Agatha Christie: Hercule Poirot is a brilliant detective who uses his keen observation and deduction skills to solve crimes just as Prince William does almost daily navigating the complicated life of a Royal. Both are also a lover of fine things, including food and travel and they have a strong desire to get to the bottom of unanswered questions.

King Charles – Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham from “Downton Abbey” by Julian Fellowes: Robert Crawley and Prince Charles both come from aristocratic families with long histories, and both feel a sense of responsibility to uphold their family’s traditions and values. They are also both seen as being somewhat conservative and resistant to change, although they are ultimately willing to adapt to the modern world when necessary.

Megan Markle – Rachel Chu from “Crazy Rich Asians” by Kevin Kwan: Rachel Chu is a confident, intelligent, and independent character. Like Megan Markle, she is also a biracial woman who navigates the complexities of being part of two different cultures. Rachel Chu and Megan Markle are different individuals with unique life experiences; they embody strength, resilience, and determination.

Prince Harry – Teddy from “The Dutch House” by Ann Patchett: Teddy is a character who is charming, impulsive, and at times, reckless. He is also a veteran who struggles with adjusting to civilian life after serving in World War II as Prince Harry continues to search for his footing stepping by from his royal duties.

Camilla – Miranda Priestly from “The Devil Wears Prada” by Lauren Weisberger: Miranda Priestly is a character who is powerful, sophisticated, and often perceived as intimidating or cold. Like Camilla, she is also a woman who has achieved great success in her career, but it came with backlash, frenemies, and the strong-willed desire to forge ahead, no matter the cost.

Princess Anne – Eleanor Vance from “The Haunting of Hill House” by Shirley Jackson: Eleanor Vance is a character who is independent, pragmatic, and often perceived as unconventional. Like Princess Anne, she is also a woman who has carved out her path in life and has been unafraid to challenge traditional expectations.

The King Charles Coronation is approaching, and our cast of characters are finally coming together to prepare for the grand event. With their unique personalities and talents, it’s easy to imagine the chaos and drama that will unfold that reads right out of a captivating bestselling novel.
