One of the most recognisable men in the United Kingdom, Prince Philip has been consort to Queen Elizabeth II since 1947. The patron of several charities and organisations he is rarely out of the public eye.
Yet, very little is known about the Prince's early life. In this fast-paced and highly entertaining biography, Philip Eade focuses on the most compelling aspects of this period: his father's dramatic flight from revolutionary Greece; his mother's madness, for which she was admitted to an asylum; his school days in Nazi Germany; his relationship with his three sisters who all married Germans, one an officer in the SS; and his courtship and marriage to the most eligible girl in the world; Princess Elizabeth.
Written with great verve, this is the most complete account of Prince Philip's storm-tossed younger years.
