Prince Philip 1921-2021

A Celebration

The first official publication to cover the Prince’s life and work as a member of the British Royal Family.

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, this highly illustrated guide depicts the major events in Prince Philip’s life, from his birth in Corfu, his education and naval and wartime service, to his marriage to Queen Elizabeth II, his support for the sovereign at home and abroad, his personal interests and hobbies, and his patronage of more than seven hundred and fifty charities and organizations.

Drawing on private archives and official records, the book considers the many sides to Britain’s longest-serving consort, on a personal level as a son, husband, and father, as a sportsman and artist, as a champion of science and industry, and as a leader in environmental and conservation causes. With more than one hundred and fifty images of His Royal Highness, some published for the first time, this personal yet authoritative account offers a fresh look at a lifetime of achievements.
