Young Prince Philip recounts the Prince’s extraordinary upbringing in Greece, France, Nazi Germany and Britain. His deaf mother was committed to a psychiatric clinic when he was nine, and his father left him to be brought up by her family. He emerged from this unsettled background self-confident, capable and famously opinionated, yet also prone to outbursts and putting his foot in it, characteristics which would have profound consequences for his family and the monarchy.

Professional reviews

"A gripping biography of the early life of Prince Philip; although married to the most famous woman in the world, his origins remain curiously shrouded in obscurity ‘The narrative is as suspenseful as any thriller. Truly an excellent read’ SUNDAY TIMES ‘Highly readable…This engaging book deserves to take its place among the first rank of modern royal biographies’ DAILY MAIL"
