Prince Philip The Turbulent Early Life of the Man Who Married Queen Elizabeth Author:Philip Eade As Philip Eade demonstrates in this highly readable biography of Prince Philip's first thirty years, this extraordinary man endured a childhood of such turmoil that nowadays the social services would have placed him in care....This balanced, sympathetic, engaging book deserves to take it's place among the first rank of modern royal biographies -... more » Christopher Hudson, Daily Mail
The narrative is as suspenseful as any thriller, Truly an excellent read - Lynn Barber, The Sunday Times
Rich in Drama and tragedy... Eade's staunchly unhagiographic book is well spiced with royal tidbits, and enlivened by a lemony tartness in the author's tone...As thoughtful and unbiased an explanation as we are likely to get -- Miranda Seymour, The Guardian
Fascinating reading...Carefully researced, warm hearted and unjudgmental --Andrew Barrow, London Evening Standard.
Perhaps this should be regarded as a sighting shot, staking a claim for the official biography which will eventually be commissioned. On the basis of this excellent book on can say that it would be a task that Eade was singularly well qualified to undertake -- Philip Ziegler, The Spectator.« less
