Wonderful bio of Prince Albert Victor, known in his family as Eddy. This is the young man about whom it was bandied about for decades was at least a contender for the title of Jack the Ripper. The book provides excerpts of letters written by various people who knew him. He was often described as lazy and indolent, but his parents, Edward VII and his queen consort, Alexandra, were more interested is their social whirl than anything else. And as a grandson of the Widow of Windsor, he was going to fail from the start by comparison with his grandfather, Albert. However, he is presented as having a winning personality that would have served him well as king. And he could have learned as his father did. By obtaining state papers on the sly. One wonders where the British monarchy would be if he had not died at twenty-eight.

Highly recommended.

All I know about Eddy was his putative connection to Jack the Ripper. The story as presented here is much more tragic. Had he lived and become king in 1910, on the death of Edward VII, married and had descendants, the history of England would have been far different.With his death, the country had two successive kings during the world wars who had had careers in the Royal Navy. As a result, they were far better trained to lead a country at war than either Eddy or David would have been.

Finally someone goes to the trouble to clear prince Albert doctor's name. He has been wrongly called dim witted and liked to a horrible scandal, now evidence has shown he was not involved in the cleveland street scandal. His finer qualities are given and people finally can judge his character for themselves.

The author goes to great length to examine and disprove some of the scandalous rumors that have circulated over the years about Prince Albert Victor, but neglects to tell us very much about his true life. The most interesting part of the biography are the transcripts of letters written to Prince Louis of Battenberg, his cousin's husband.

I knew so little about Prince Eddy and Andrew Cook's bio was both fascinating and revealing. I think it is a very sad story and I just wonder how he would have got on if he'd married 'May Teck' or become King. I daresay he would have helped her with her tapestries and collection of antiques. Yes all very good and most interesting.

If you ask any student of history today about Prince Eddy you'll most likely get a blank stare. This poor guy lost his place in history when he died, supposedly of influenza, at age 28. At that time he was engaged to Princess May of Teck, who later married Eddy's brother, Prince George, and they became George V and Queen Mary. When Eddy died the nation went into mourning not unlike it did when Princess Diana died. However, through the years, Eddy's name has slowly disappeared, possibly because of all the scandal attached to it. Great reading for any history buff!
Excellent book and excellent condition of book and dust cover
