This souvenir publication celebrates the remarkable 99-year life of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Britain’s longest serving consort. Drawing on private archives as well as official records, the book explores the major events in Prince Philip’s life, from his birth in Corfu, his education and naval and wartime service, to his marriage to Her Majesty The Queen, his support for the sovereign at home and abroad, his interests and his patronage of more than 750 organisations.

With more than 150 images of His Royal Highness, this personal yet authoritative account offers a fresh look at a lifetime of achievement.

The great thing about my father is that nobody’s ever forgotten meeting him, so they’ve all got their stories!
… Wherever he’s been, wherever in the world – people remember him.

You can’t really get a better accolade than that.


HRH The Earl of Wessex

He has, quite simply, been my strength and stay all these years and I, and his whole family, and this and many other countries, owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim or we shall ever know.
