Perhaps once in a generation a biographer is allowed close to a living member of Britain's royal family. Now, to mark the Duke of Edinburgh's seventieth birthday, journalist and writer Tim Heald has been granted unprecedented access to his subject. He has spent many fascinating hours in conversation with the Prince, who gave Heald not only his time--and comments at every stage of the writing of this biography--but also made available to the author his unpublished papers, and books from his personal library. Heald has watched Philip at work, attending with him Buckingham Palace staff meetings and a succession of formal appearances; and Heald has talked as well to those who have known the Duke most intimately over the years--including the Queen Mother, Princess Margaret, and Princess Anne.
