From the cover: In 1963, when Prince Charles was a fifteen-year-old schoolboy at Gordonstoun, Michael Varney, a young police constable from Norfolk, entered the Royal Protection Group of the Metropolitan Police and was assigned to Charles as bodyguard. He was to remain his shadow for the next six years.
Closer to Charles than anyone else during those formative years, he built up a close relationship with the young prince, and watched his gradual transformation from shy, often lonely, boy to self-assured and responsible adult. During his school career and later at Trinity College, Cambridge, Mike Varney had the task of extricating Charles from a number of embarrassing or potentially explosive situations, which he recounts with wry humour in the text.
Bodyguard to Charles gives a new and vivid insight into the character of a young man learning to cope with his unique situation as heir to the throne.
