Philip Eades book is quite good. The "Turbulent Early Life" refers to his upbringing as an exiled prince not to anything especially racy he might have done as a young man. While not an official authorized biography it was done with cooperation from Philips equerry. and the palace arranged for the author to have access/interviews with Philips friends and relatives as well as the Royal Archives, and the Hesse State Archives. It is in no way some sort of trashy Kitty Kelly tell all type of book and is well worth a read.

It was pretty straightforward and told alot about his Greek side of the family (nothing salacious etc) bloodlines etc. Very interesting....talked about his relationship with Mountbattan(s) and his time at school. Not much of the book was about his marriage.

It takes you from his birth on a dining room table at Mon Repos in 1921 to the Coronation in 1953. Definitely nothing racy in it. Just a well researched book about a time in his life before his wife became monarch.

I once read a book of quotes that he said; I forget the title of it.

I am surprised their arent more he really is a big part of the Monarchy and has done some wonderful things he is also a very interesting character. You can have a great read without any of that trashy stuff.
