Philip, Prince of Greece: The Duke of Edinburgh's Early Life and the Greek Succession Hardcover book


Philip, Prince of Greece: The Duke of Edinburgh's Early Life and the Greek Succession Hardcover book

Book Description;


Many books have been written about the life of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, yet there always seem to be corners of his long life that have remained unexplored. In this long look back into his early years, Constantinos Lagos & John Carr uncover hitherto unknown aspects of Philip's life as a Greek prince & his gradual transformation from a mere appendage of the troubled Greek royal family to an enduring pillar of the British monarchy. For the first time, Lagos & Carr delve into neglected Greek archives for a fascinating picture of Philip's early Greek life & the constant insecurity that dogged his steps as his father Prince Andrew of Greece & mother Princess Alice struggled to order their own lives in the maelstrom of unstable & often violent Greek politics in a Europe sliding towards world war. The Greek royal family, in which Philip has his roots, is dealt with at length, to bring out the particular family history & circumstances that played no small part in shaping his personality. Anyone curious about how Prince Philip actually grew up will find in this book a wealth of eye-opening, often startling details that will add more brush strokes to the portrait of the often-elusive but real Prince Philip.

Philip: The Final Portrait: The Final Portrait - THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Paperback.


Philip: The Final Portrait: The Final Portrait - THE INSTANT SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER Paperback book

Book Description;


This is the story of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - the longest-serving consort to the longest-reigning sovereign in British history. It is an extraordinary story, told with unique insight & authority by an author who knew the prince for more than forty years.


Philip - elusive, complex, controversial, challenging, often humorous, sometimes irascible - is the man Elizabeth II once described as her 'constant strength & guide'. Who was he? What was he really like? What is the truth about those 'gaffes' & the rumours of affairs? This is the final portrait of an unexpected & often much-misunderstood figure. It is also the portrait of a remarkable marriage that endured for more than seventy years.


Philip and Elizabeth were both royal by birth, both great-great-grandchildren of Queen Victoria, but, in temperament & upbringing, they were two very different people. The Queen's childhood was loving & secure, the Duke's was turbulent; his grandfather assassinated, his father arrested, his family exiled, his parents separated when he was only ten. Elizabeth & Philip met as cousins in the 1930s. They married in 1947, aged twenty-one & twenty-six.


Philip: The Final Portrait tells the story of two contrasting lives, assesses the Duke of Edinburgh's character & achievement, & explores the nature of his relationships with his wife, his children & their families - & with the press & public & those at court who were suspicious of him in the early days. This is a powerful, revealing &, ultimately, moving account of a long life & a remarkable royal partnership.

The Queen by Matthew Dennison


The Queen by Matthew Dennison book cover

Book Description;


An elegant & magisterial new biography of Her Majesty The Queen.

'A worthy & balanced overview of the Queen's life. Dennison is especially good on her childhood ... Quietly, tactfully, tastefully reverent' - The Times


For millions of people, both in Britain & across the world, Elizabeth II is the embodiment of monarchy. Her long life spans nearly a century of national & global history, from a time before the Great Depression to the era of Covid-19. Her reign embraces all but seven years of Britain's post-war history; she has been served by fifteen UK prime ministers from Churchill to Johnson, & witnessed the administrations of thirteen US presidents from Truman to Trump. The vast majority of Britons cannot remember a world without Elizabeth II as head of state & the Commonwealth.


In this brand-new biography of the longest-reigning sovereign in British history, Matthew Dennison traces her life & reign across an era of unprecedented & often seismic social change. Stylish in its writing & nuanced in its judgements, The Queen charts the joys & triumphs as well as the disappointments & vicissitudes of a remarkable royal life; it also assesses the achievement of a woman regarded as the champion of a handful of 'British' values endorsed – if no longer practised – by the bulk of the nation: service, duty, steadfastness, charity & stoicism.
