Description

The romantic story of the courtship, love and marriage of a young English girl and a Siamese Prince, racing driver, and sculptor. Set in the golden years of the 1930s, in a now-vanished world, before Siam became Thailand, this unique autobiography describes a life filled with excitement, adventure, and fascinating people. Noel Coward, Princess Marina, The Duchess of Kent, and even Anthony Blunt and Guy Burgess feature in this fascinating insight into an extraordinary era.

Synopsis

The is the story of the passionate love of Bira, Prince of Siam, grandson of King Mongkut of The King & I fame, and the young Englishwoman who would become his wife, Princess Ceril Birabongse. The fascinating autobiography charts the life of Prince and Princess Birabongse, a life that was constantly filled with excitement and fascinating people, including Noel Coward, Princess Marina, The Duchess of Kent, and even Anthony Blunt and Guy Burgess. Illustrating her narrative with a selection of private photographs, extending from her childhood years to her elegant retirement on Lake Garda, the author paints a rich picture of life during the golden days of the 1930s, and of a man who was not only a Prince, but a sculptor, Olympic sailor, and racing driver – the only Southeast Asian Formula One driver of the 20th Century.
