Biography - Kate Williams, historian and author of Englands

[Image: template_image4.jpg][Image: kate_7.jpg]

Kate studied her BA at Somerville College, Oxford where she was a College Scholar and received the Violet Vaughan Morgan University Scholarship. She then took her MA at Queen Mary, University of London and her DPhil at Oxford, where she received a graduate prize. She also took an MA in Creative Writing at Royal Holloway. She now teaches at Royal Holloway.

Kate's book, with Alison Weir, Sarah Gristwood and Tracy Borman, The Ring and the Crown, is a history of royal weddings through the ages, drawing on the very rich research they have all carried out on royal marriage over the years. Royal Weddings, as the authors show, could be grand, humble, secretive, glamorous or ridiculous - but never dull.
