'I was drawn to the remarkable story of Prince Philip's early life, which ... was overflowing with drama and tragedy.' So Philip Eade begins his balanced and sympathetic portrait of the first 32 years of Philip's life. Exploring a childhood of turmoil, largely spent away from his parents with relatives and at boarding school in Gordonstoun, during which Philip's 'undefeated spirit' was formed, the book sheds light on his later life as the longest-serving consort to a reigning British monarch.
