Format: Hardcover
People Magazine scrupulously chronicled Diana's life from when she became engaged to the Prince to her tragic death. This span of years from 1981-1997 are covered in this tribute book to the late Princess of Wales. The covers are reproduced and excerpts and selected photographs from the articles are included. People did add wedding pictures which were not included in the original issue. It is a poignant look with covers featuring a couple apparently in love starting a life together, the births of the children and the rapid descent into marital discord and eventual separation and divorce. There is an eery comment by Charles about his new fiancee in one of the early issues that he will have to get used to seeing the backs of photographers when Lady Diana is around; Charles' jealousy apparently started way back then--this jealousy of Diana's popularity was a factor in the erosion of the marriage. There are pics of the "other woman" Camilla Parker Bowles and issues highlighting Diana's friendship with her sister in law Sarah Ferguson (two covers stories including The Merry Wives of Windsor focus on the pair). There are lovely photographs of Diana with the young princes and chronicles the lives of William and Harry as they grew up. For those who are fans of the late Princess this is a must have. It will also serve as a guide to collectors who want the original issues--they can try to locate the original issues via ebay and other venues and now can match the issues and cover stories via the book. Highly recommended.

I'm extremely impressed with the outstanding job the Editor's of PEOPLE magazine did in covering so many stories, unforgettable moments, touching times, the joy, the pain, the sadness, and most of all, portraying DIANA as she deserves to be remembered - with dignity, grace, and purity.

This is an exceptional book that I know I will be looking through again and again. If you want a great book capturing DIANA as she deserves to be remembered, this is one of the best. It would also make a great gift for anyone who loved DIANA, Princess of Wales who loved her children with all of her heart, and loved humanity. Her memory lives on and shines as bright as ever, as she deserves it to.

I would have liked to see a book with more of the People stories, not just the covers.

Format: Hardcover
People magazine published many disreputable cover stories and lengthy articles about the Princess of Wales that were not included in this special edition. The 1985 cover story of Diana called Malice At The Palace (inside story: Rebellion At Kensington) was not included. This was the issue that revealed the many problems between Diana and the courtiers and servants (most of whom had been employed by the Prince of Wales before she entered the picture) and why they left the couple's London residence Kensington Palace. The article implied that the willful Princess had sacked most of them and put enormous pressure on the Prince to do so. It further reported that Her Royal Highness spent some her nights dancing away amid private parties at manorhouse balls usually w/o Prince Charles.

Also left out of the selection were the scandalous cover stories on Diana's affairs with banker Philip Dunne, Army officer James Hewitt, and car dealer James Gilbey. Her extra-marital affairs were much of the focus of People's reporting, yet it was through this one magazine that Americans would come to know and love the Princess of Wales. People made so much money off Diana in her lifetime that they obviously did not want to smear her memory.
