WIN a Copy of Prince Philip’s Century – The Extraordinary Life of The Duke Of Edinburgh
Originally due for release to celebrate Prince Philip’s 100th birthday in June, Robert Jobson’s fascinating book has been updated to commemorate the life of the Duke of Edinburgh following his death on 9th April 2021.
For decades Prince Philip shared the Queen’s burden of office without upstaging her, always privately providing reassurance and advice but never overstepping the boundaries of his supporting role.
It was an unforgiving position – a challenge for anyone – but one that he met head on. He remained the Queen’s adviser until his death and is recognised as such the world over. That said, he was wise enough to recognise his limitations and the constraints of his role. He always seemed to instinctively know when it was time to step back and let his wife take the lead. His job was, after all, to allow her star to shine.
Robert Jobson’s magnificent new biography of the Duke of Edinburgh tells the full story of his remarkable life and achievements, and how, after his marriage in 1947 to Princess Elizabeth, this dedicated military man spent so much of his life supporting his wife. But he was to create a role for himself as a determined moderniser and environmental campaigner, and through the Duke of Edinburgh Awards, encouraging young people to reach their potential.
Though perhaps his greatest achievements have been as a loyal husband and companion, and as a loving father and grandfather.
You know this is going to be an absorbing read because it comes from the pen of Robert Jobson, one of Britain’s leading Royal commentators.
Dubbed ‘the Godfather of Royal reporting’ by the Wall Street Journal, he is Royal Editor of the Evening Standard and regularly appears on television as a Royal expert. A best-selling author and award-winning correspondent, he has been at the forefront of Royal reporting for a quarter of a century.
