First came the royal engagement. Now - 10 days later - comes the first book.

"William and Kate: A Royal Love Story," by Sun newspaper royal reporter James Clench is being published Friday, the first in a slew of new titles about the relationship between Prince William and fiancee Kate Middleton.

Published by Harper Collins - like The Sun, owned by Rupert Murdoch - the book is scattered with photos by Arthur Edwards, the paper's long-serving royal photographer.

Several books on the royal romance are in the works ahead of the April 29 royal wedding at Westminster Abbey.

They include one by celebrity journalist Andrew Morton, whose 1992 book "Diana: Her True Story" rocked the royal family and punctured the image of Princess Diana's fairy-tale romance with Prince Charles.
