This is certain to be exciting news for royal watchers and historians!

In July 2022, the memoirs of the Duke of Kent will be published by Hodder & Stoughton, Ltd. Entitled A Royal Life, the tome was compiled based on conversations between the duke and royal historian Hugo Vickers. The book will be slightly over 300 pages.

Following is an overview of the memoirs from its publisher:

The Duke of Kent has been at the center of Royal life since he was born. On his father’s side he is a first cousin of The Queen, the grandson of King George V and Queen Mary, the nephew of King George VI – and on his mother’s side he is a cousin of Prince Philip and descends from Greek, Danish and Russian Kings, Queens and Emperors.

The Duke has been involved in all key royal events through his life – after the early death of his father he walked in the procession behind the King’s coffin in 1952 and he paid homage to his cousin, the new Queen, at the Coronation in 1953. He was riding with her when the blanks were fired at the Trooping of the Colour in 1981 – and he was the only member of the Royal Family to stand alongside the Queen to celebrate her official birthday in June 2021. He is now 85 years old.

A Royal Life, which includes never before seen photographs from the Duke’s own collection, is based on a set of conversations between Prince Edward and Royal historian Hugo Vickers. The conversations focus on the most important moments and themes of The Queen’s life and seventy-year reign. They offer a unique and unprecedented set of insights into life as a working royal and behind the scenes of the world’s most celebrated family.
