The Duke

by Ian Lloyd


On April 9 2021, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, died at the age of 99. His long life was filled with turmoil, joy, and drama, and The Duke offers an informative and often amusing look into the life of Prince Philip.

Ian Lloyd is a writer and photographer who specializes in the British royal family. His other books include A Year in the Life of a Duchess, New Royal Family, and An Audience with Queen Victoria.

Comprising both entertaining anecdotes and challenging family squabbles, with several chapters devoted to Philip's withering one-liners, The Duke is an engaging elegy to the late prince.
