by Penny Junor, Penny Junor

Prince William: Born to be King An intimate portrait Synopsis

As the nation celebrates the birth of William and Kate's son Prince George, Penny Junor brings us the definitive biography of the man who will be King before him. His face is recognized the world over, he is unmistakably Diana's eldest son. But what is Prince William really like? How did he survive the traumas and tragedies of his childhood? He watched his parents' unhappy marriage disintegrate in the full glare of the media. Then, when he was just fifteen, his beautiful, funny, loving mother was tragically killed. How does he approach the future, and how, in this celebrity obsessed world, will he protect Kate and baby George from the intrusion that blighted his own childhood? Drawing on her extensive experience and the trust built up over thirty years of writing about the Royal Family, Penny Junor has got closer than anyone to the secret of William's success as she sensitively and elegantly narrates his life story. This extensively updated edition of Penny Junor's revealing biography is a fitting celebration of the world's most famous prince.
