William

Author(s): Peter Archer

Biography

Prince William has inherited his mother's good looks and his father's intellect. Rich, handsome and charming, he is arguably the most eligible bachelor in the world. He is a pin-up and a role model. He is a dutiful son and grandson, a loving brother and friend. He is his mother's enduring legacy and his father's pride and joy. To the credit of his mother and father, William has been brought up in the real world. Although born into immense wealth and privilege, his humility is intact. Diana was determined that William would be the People's Prince; not only did she show him how the less fortunate, the homeless and the sick, live and suffer, but she also showed the young prince how to have fun and what it was like to have a 'normal' life. Balancing this, the Prince of Wales taught his son the importance of heritage and tradition. William was born to be king and Charles' strong sense of social justice and responsibility has helped fashion the way William sees the world. William celebrates what a truly remarkable young man the prince is. He has travelled much of the world, has been educated at Eton and St Andrews and has enjoyed great academic and sporting success. At the young age of 21, William is already an accomplished individual, measuring up to his early promise. He has lived through his parent's highly publicised marriage breakdown and a bitter divorce and the utter devastation, at the young age of fifteen, of his mother's untimely death. Yet, he has developed into the embodiment of modern royalty, equally at ease on a football terrace, on the polo field or greeting his many adoring fans on official visits around the country. This pictorial celebration features hundreds of photographs of William by Tim Graham, the foremost photographer in this field; these beautiful photographs are accompanied by a unique insight into William's life by Peter Archer, the only journalist to interview the prince and be accredited to Buckingham Palace and St James's Palace. Elegant and revealing, William is not just a landmark in royal publishing but a beautiful celebration of this special year in the prince's life.
