Prince Harry Brother, Soldier, Son

Biography / Autobiography   

Lovereading view...

This is the Prince Harry you've never read about before. Published in celebration of his thirtieth birthday, this is the story behind the tabloid stories. The Prince who has the power to make or break. The maverick Prince, who is brilliant, impetuous and unpredictable. The Prince who with his unique talents, charm and bloody-minded determination is changing lives across the world. But the Prince who could, in a moment of madness, bring it all crashing down.

Synopsis

Prince Harry Brother, Soldier, Son by Penny Junor

He is the redhead that Diana called 'the spare', whose childhood was one of chaos and loss; the little boy walking behind his mother's cortege who broke our hearts. This is the story of how he survived the loss and chaos; how he lived in the shadow of his older, cleverer, more important brother - until suddenly he discovered there was something he could do better than almost anyone. This is the story of how the troubled teenager grew into a leader of men, a soldier, a pilot, an adventurer and a passionate champion of those who are in danger of being destroyed or forgotten. Written with the help of many of the most important people in his life, this is the first authoritative biography of this most delightful, charismatic and dangerous of the Queen's grandsons.

Reviews

Junor's unique access to those close to the Royal family has enabled her to build up an intimate portrait. * Daily Mail * The kind of authoritative, compassionate and revealing royal biography we have come to expect from Penny. * Choice magazine * Royal biographer Penny Junor goes beneath the cliches in her new book, Prince Harry. * Express * A good read ... this is a book about what it is like to have your world implode when you are 13 years old, to grow up as the 'spare
of a famously dead mother, to be a normal bloke in an utterly abnormal position

. * Telegraph *
