Reviews

Praise for Young Prince Philip:

'An amazing story of an incredible life. I literally couldn't put it down' Victoria Hislop, Easy Living

'Sure footed and sparkling ... I finished with an admiration I had not expected for this brave, brusque, imaginative oddball' Ferdinand Mount, Wall Street Journal

'Given what a rackety childhood Prince Philip had, it's astonishing that he hasn't spent half his life in therapy' Lynn Barber, Sunday Times

'Not a forelock-tugging royal biography ... Eade casts a clear eye over his subject's first thirty years, fleshing out with intelligence and sympathy the man whose gaffes have entertained the nation' Frances Wilson, Times Literary Supplement

'His transition from bumptious baby to universally trusted head boy at Gordonstoun, from plucky seaman to breezy Royal escort, home maker and instinctive moderniser makes fascinating reading ... carefully researched, warm-hearted and unjudgmental' Andrew Barrow, Evening Standard

"Highly readable ... This engaging book deserves to take its place among the first rank of modern royal biographies Daily Mail

'Perhaps this should be regarded as a sighting shot, staking a claim for the official biography ... on the basis of this excellent book one can say it would be a task that Eade was singularly well qualified to undertake' Philip Ziegler, Spectator

'Eade's staunchly unhagiographic book is well spiced with ... royal titbits, and enlivened by a lemony tartness in the author's tone ... Eade's account is as thoughtful and unbiased an explanation as we are likely to get of the contentious, sensitive, grouchy old martinet' Miranda Seymour, Guardian
