The relationship between the Queen and Prince Philip is enlivened by the voices of so many interesting, wonderful contemporaries, which makes for a fresh and original approach.
A riveting take on an extraordinary relationship.
It's a story we think we know so well, but in Tessa's charming new book she uncovers illuminating untold stories from the Queen and Philip's youth.
If you love royalty you'll love Tessa's book. She writes so well.
The symbolism of the Queen's marriage and how it affects a whole generation [Dunlop] illustrates very beautifully in the book . . . Elizabeth and Philip is a very good read.
A fascinating piece of history
one of my books of 2022 . . . the future Queen emerges, as one would expect, as a dignified young woman, but it is Philip's upbringing that fascinated me the most. A worthy tribute.
Wonderfully fresh . . . a glorious book.
[An] incisive, crisply written book
A charming double portrait of Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, in the early years of their romance and marriage. Enriched by interviews with ordinary Britons of the royal couple's generation, it's a poignant and well-documented study of a couple whose 'matter-of-fact style' and 'extraordinary work ethic' were a balm for their nation. Royal watchers will be pleased.
