Using personal memorabilia, documents, photographs and items from the Royal Collection and Royal Archives, many of which are shown here for the first time, this book covers The Princes childhood, his duties as Prince of Wales, family life, and his interests and charities. Childhood memories and school exercise books give way to his years at university, his investiture as Prince of Wales, and duties in the RAF and Royal Navy. There are mementoes from his official duties abroad, his work with The Princes Trust, and as a pioneering conservationist. And there are photographs, documents and paintings recording The Princes family life, at Kensington Palace, Highgrove, and now at Clarence House. Interwoven throughout the book are paintings and works of art chosen by The Prince from both the Royal Collection and his own collection, together with his personal reflections on their importance to him, recording his well-known interests in architecture and the arts.
