Summary

Summary

He was born the most famous baby in the world, son of the President-elect of the United States. Millions saw him as the little boy who said goodbye to his father with a final salute -- a heartbreaking image that became part of history. Now, three decades later, another generation of Camelot comes to a tragic end.

This fascinating unauthorized biography reveals as no other the inner dynamics of the marriage between John and Jacqueline Kennedy; John, Jr.'s search for a father figure in his uncles, Robert and Ted Kennedy, and his stepfather, Aristotle Onassis. It reveals young John's dreams of becoming an actor, his career in law, and his founding of George magazine. And it intimately details his role of loving son to his late mother, devoted husband to Carolyn Bessette, and as America's Prince Charming to the rest of the world.

With a dazzling array of photos, Prince Charming delves below the glossy surface to tell the respiring, flesh-and-blood true story of a young man born to live a life that was destined to be called a legend.
