Ingrid Seward shows how a man of action coped with having to spend the next 70 years of his life walking two steps behind his wife. His reaction was to create a role for himself, modernising the monarchy, campaigning to protect the environment, supporting the sciences and engineering, and inspiring the young through the Duke of Edinburgh Awards. But, above all, he proved himself to be the Queen’s most valuable and loyal companion throughout her long reign.

The TV series The Crown has helped bring Prince Philip to the centre of attention, but Seward’s biography not only examines the major influences on his life, but is packed with revealing behind-the-scenes details and great insight. The first major biography of Prince Philip for almost 30 years shines new light on his complex character and extraordinary career.
