Michael Parker was best known as a friend of the Duke of Edinburgh and his sometime Private Secretary. This was unfair to Parker, a man who was a strong and endearing figure in his own right and who enjoyed a distinguished naval career before his royal relationship, and a colourful but successful business life after his untimely departure from royal employment in 1957. link
