New book, 576 pages. Sir Howard Elphinstone, dashing hero of the Crimean War, was handpicked by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to be governor to their favourite son, Prince Arthur. Despite and uncertain beginning at court and many clashes with the Queen, on Albert's death, Elphinstone became not only a surrogate father to the royal children, but also the Queen's most trusted confidant. In her darkest moments, it was Elphinstone to whom she turned for advice. Artist, soldier, bodyguard, diplomat, confidant and spy: Elphinstone is the forgotten hero of the Victorian court. Extensively researched and drawing on hundreds of previously unpublished letters, this book restores him to his rightful position at the heart of the most extraordinary royal family in British history.
