In this extract from a new book Prince Philip’s role as husband and family man is put under the spotlight 

When he wed the princess who’d be queen nearly 70 years ago, he knew his life would for-ever be overshadowed by a woman who put duty before all else. 

Yet Prince Philip was never going to be a pushover. A complex man, he tried to assert himself in many ways – and a new book casts fresh insight on the ways the Duke of Edinburgh stamped his will and whims on his wife and family.
