by HRH The Prince Andrew

These royal photographs were taken by an insider, but don't look for any of Andy's mum with her hair in curlers or even of his onetime flame, Koo Stark—with or without clothes. (Andrew mentions Koo in his introduction, but demurely, as if she might have passed through the castle on a tour.) Instead, Andrew mostly offers travel brochure shots of his worldwide wandering. Some, such as color photographs of Canadian vistas, are striking; others, such as a shaky time exposure of nighttime Los Angeles, suggest that as a photographer Andrew makes quite a dashing prince. The only picture displaying vigorous human life is one of Andrew's Royal Navy chums making a funny face at him on board HMS Brazen, to which the Prince is assigned as a helicopter pilot.
