This is the story of Prince Harry, the Queen's grandchild, son of the Prince of Wales and perhaps the most popular member of the Royal Family. From a childhood overshadowed by his parents' troubled marriage and scarred by the tragic death of his mother, to his brilliant public performances at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the London Olympics and his brother's wedding, this book charts the remarkable journey of a young man with an extraordinary destiny. Once pilloried as a playboy prince who drank £200 cocktails in London nightclubs, brawled with photographers and wore a Nazi uniform to a fancydress party, Harry has since been hailed as a hero following his first term of duty on the front line in southern Helmand in Afghanistan, the most dangerous place on earth. The author has enjoyed exclusive access to a wide variety of people whose lives Harry has touched: senior aides, humble members of palace staff, aristocrats, bodyguards, school friends, comrades-in-arms and old flames. Together, they piece together the tale of a young man who admirably has created a life so different from the one set out for him by an accident of birth'.
