This is the story of one man’s life; its dramas, romances, tragedies, achievements and frustrations. But it is more than the story of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, eldest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, a man born to be king.

The intimate pattern of personal experiences, feelings and development is interwoven into the broad canvas of national and international events and people covering his sixty-nine years, in particular Queen Victoria and his bride Princess Alexandra of Denmark.

Throughout his life can be seen his relationships with such famous figures as Sir Robert Peel, Benjamin Disraeli, W. E. Gladstone, the Duke of Wellington, Lord Carrington, Colonel Bruce, Nathaniel Rothschild, Lord Randolph Churchill, Lili Langtry, Marie Lloyd and many others.

Against his love of pomp and pageantry there is always drama, from a near fatal illness to an attempted assassination, but finally a triumphant though sadly short-lived reign, lasting less than a decade but leaving behind memories of a richly coloured life, shaped perhaps because of his frustrations, and a beloved monarch.
