Publisher's Summary

Prince Harry has made headlines all over the world with his unruly antics, but instead of being sidelined as the House of Windsor's biggest liability, Prince Henry of Wales has emerged as the jewel in the crown of the modern British monarchy.
Today Harry is the most popular member of the monarchy after Her Majesty herself. He has won the public's heart as the loveable rogue prince and royal heartthrob for girls and women around the world. What sets Harry apart from the rest of his family is the twinkle in the eye - the ability to rip up the rule book and let his natural cheekiness shine through.
Duncan Larcombe's insightful and entertaining biography of the rebellious royal recalls Harry's Eton exploits, his military career and his tempestuous love life as well as revisiting some events that the prince would probably prefer to forget - such as his notorious Nazi fancy dress which landed him in a global storm of criticism. But despite a string of incidents that would normally destroy the career of any aspiring public figure, Harry has a mysterious gift. The more scrapes Harry gets in, the more the public seem to love him.
But with his military career over, Harry is at a crossroads facing not just the pressure of full-time royal work ahead but the possibility of carrying the burden of the British throne in the future. Will charm and personality be enough to prepare him for a life under the microscope of royal work?

Maybe the book was written way too soon?

It's not that the book itself is bad or uninteresting but it is somewhat repetitive and to a certain extent even boring - it's basically about his relationship with Chelsea and his military career. There are other episodes as well, but the vast majority is that, which made the last 4 hours not exciting at all.
Of course, there are some scandalous incidents mentioned, such as the Nazi costume and hotel picture but if anything, it only shows how young the Prince still is and how much he has yet to develop and and achieve. Overally speaking, those moments however are not enough to keep the book from blending into a monotonous narration. In fact, they could be consider unfortunate consequences a life in a saturated digital society, representing more a privacy breakage rather than a wish for exposition.
One honorable aspect of the book through is the amount of respect for Harry and the Royal Family; even during the most turbulent times the author doesn't make use of sensationalism and tries to deliver the information as impartially as possible, something I highly admire.
If the book was written in ten or fifteen years from now, or perhaps had half the size, I believe would be much more interesting and dynamic, but as it is, it's a solid 3 out of 5. Doesn't mean you shouldn't get the book. It just won't be a thrilling reading from beginning to end.

Some statements are too repetitive

Some statements are subject to much repetition; the book would be better, albeit shorter, without them. However, it is generally interesting. Good job.
