Brother. Soldier. Son. Husband.
By Penny Junor
From Penny Junor, acclaimed biographer of the Royal Family and author of The Duchess - a top 10 bestseller, comes an authoritative look at the life of Britain's Prince Harry. Now updated with a new introduction and final chapter.
This is the Prince Harry you've never read about before - the story behind the tabloid stories.
Harry is the maverick Prince, who is brilliant, impetuous and unpredictable, and who, at the age of 33, has finally found happiness with the American actress, Meghan Markle - a mixed-race divorcee. 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; growing up in the shadow of his older brother to become a leader of men. This is the story of how the troubled teenager grew into 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.
