A new book hitting the stalls worth a read methinks!
'Young Prince Philip' - by Philip Eade.
Intro: The British Royals have been much in the news and in print this year thanks to the celebrations for the Diamond Jubilee ( ... and maybe other antics that have probably been discussed enough already).
Amongst the crop of royal books is Young Prince Philip: his turbulent early life (M) by Philip Eade.
Probably most of us can only picture Prince Philip as an older, if not elderly, man - grumpy, impatient and speaking his mind when it might have been better to pause and maybe say nothing. Eade covers the first part of his Philip's life up to Princess Elizabeth's coronation.
Fair enough… but it now!
