In the year in which Prince Charles celebrates his 70th birthday, local writer Gill Knappett, who lives in Whitchurch, Hampshire, has written a book about the heir to the throne.
Charles, Prince of Wales tells the story of the boy born to be King and follows his journey from schoolboy to eligible young bachelor and from fatherhood to his more recent role as grandfather. This richly illustrated royal souvenir reflects his interests in sport, his time in the armed forces, his royal homes, his life with his wife, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, his dedication to his role as a senior member of the Royal Family, and has a particular focus on the patronages and passions he holds dear.
