Duke: 100 Chapters in the Life of Prince Philip

Author(s): IAN LLOYD


An accessible and witty celebration of the life of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. The Duke is a miscellany of facts and key moments in the life of the man the Queen has called her 'strength and stay' over the past seventy-two years. Rather than a typical biography it intersperses longer chapters on key events such as Prince Philip's war record, marriage, education, charity work, with smaller sections dealing with specific topics from his fondness for poetry to his dislike of the Duchess of York. Written in an entertaining style, The Duke features previously unpublished comments from the Duke's relations and a former member of the household as well as historians and documentary makers. It also features the author's first-hand observations of over 300 of the Duke's public and private engagements since the late 1980s including state visits to Russia and the Czech Republic. AUTHOR: Ian Lloyd has spent twenty years as a full-time writer and photographer, specialising in the British Royal Family. He has had two books in the Sunday Times bestseller list (both 2011) and writes regular features for the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday, Hello Magazine and Majesty Magazine. Ian is also the Royal Correspondent for The Sunday Post and a regular royal pundit on Sky News, BBC News and BBC Radio 5 Live. He lives in Oxford. 30 b/w illustrations
