Publisher's Summary

Discover the full and fascinating story of Prince Philip - one of the most important, elusive, and intriguing royals - in “the first major biography of Philip in more than 30 years” (Vanity Fair) written by the renowned royal family expert and editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine.

The son of Greek and Danish royalty, consort to the queen, and the grandfather of Princes Harry and William, Prince Philip was at the heart of the royal family for decades - yet he remained an enigma to many.

Now, Ingrid Seward, the editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, brings her decades of experience covering the royal family to this “authoritative and thorough” (Kirkus Reviews) biography of Queen Elizabeth II’s husband, and father, grandfather, and great-grandfather of the next three kings of England. From his early childhood in Paris among aristocrats and his mother’s battle with schizophrenia to his military service during World War II and marriage to Elizabeth in 1947, Seward chronicles Philip’s life and reveals his many faces - as a father, a philanthropist, a philanderer, and a statesman. Though it took years for Philip to find his place in a royal court that initially distrusted him, he remained one of the most complex, powerful, yet confounding members of Britain’s royal family until his death in April 2021.

Entertaining, eye-opening, and informative, Prince Philip Revealed gets to the heart of his multi-faceted character and his crucial role in shaping the monarchy in the 21st century.

Little new

Very little new information. Julie Teal's version of an American accent is awful! Why is Sarah Ferguson continually called by her nickname when no one else is?

Nothing Revealed

If you are interested in a fawning portrayal, this book is ok for you. Otherwise, it tells nothing new; in fact, it goes out of its way to avoid anything too personally revealing. Disappointing.
