Description
100 pithy chapters celebrating the man behind the myths in this engaging and affectionate biography of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (1921-2021). Drawing upon interviews with those who knew him best and illustrated with the author’s photographs, the book mixes personal anecdotes with the Duke’s own words, plus fact-filled lists and informative summaries on themed topics. Includes tales of his early life and Naval career; explanations of the Duke’s medals; how Prince Philip designed Princess Elizabeth’s engagement ring; ‘gaffes’, pranks and sense of fun; all alongside tales and tributes to over seven decades of public service as the Queen’s ‘strength and stay’. A rich portrait of a varied, full, and unconventional life. The paperback edition includes an updated final chapter as the author reflects upon Prince Philip’s last days, funeral and legacy.
