Transworld delays Madeleine McCann book publication

<p>Transworld has delayed the release of the memoir Madeleine by Kate and Gerry McCann by a fortnight in order to avoid a clash with the Royal wedding. The <em>Daily Mail</em> reports the book was originally slated for 28th April publication, the day before Prince William and Kate Middleton&#39;s wedding.<br /><br />McCann family spokesman Clarence Mitchell told the newspaper: &quot;The publication date for Madeleine has now been moved on to May 12 2011 in the light of the royal wedding and the subsequent media coverage that will generate.<br /><br />&quot;Kate and Gerry are very happy with the new date, as are the publishers, and it will still be very much tied into the fourth anniversary of Madeleine&#39;s disappearance.&quot;<br /><br />Madeleine McCann went missing in 2007 while on holiday with her family in Portugal. The book tackles her disappearance as well as the McCann&#39;s memories and experience of the event.<br /><br />The advance and all royalties will go to the McCann&#39;s official Madeleine&#39;s Fund, used to look for their daughter.</p>
