Why does Prince William hate the press so much? Who are the girls he likes
to spend his time with? Which are his favorite foods and what does he like
to drink? How much is he worth? Why did he choose to go to St. Andrew's
University? Why does he have to wear a 'panic button' at all times?
In this fascinating account of Prince William's life, Brian Hoey discloses
many previously unpublished details and includes interviews with those who
have played important roles in the Prince's education and upbringing. Lord
Blake, constitutional expert, Norman Lloyd-Edwards, Lord Lieutenant of
Wales, who developed a warm friendship with Diana and her sons, Chris
Patten, former Government Minister, who advised on the Prince's education,
and Mohammed Al Fayed, are among those who have contributed to this
revealing biography. One of William's fellow students tells of the Prince's
daily routine at university while an old friend reveals how the world first
discovered that he is left-handed. The book also examines William's role in
the future and explains why Prince Charles will never step aside to pass the
throne directly to his son.
Filled with anecdotes and thoughtful comment and packed with color
photographs, Prince William creates a vivid portrait of an exciting
and glamorous member of the most famous family in the world, and casts a new
light on the young man on whom the hopes of the Royal Family rest. It is a
must for all those interested in royalty and the future of the monarchy.
