Affected by severe epilepsy and what is now thought to have been autism, the Prince was kept from the public gaze, and even lived apart from the other royal children. This insightful, sympathetic film reveals the attitudes held in the past towards little-understood illnesses, and is also a brilliant account of the lead up to the First World War seen from the unique perspective of this cloistered child.
