Book Description

The life of Diana, Princess of Wales, has never before been told with such insight and authority. This book is a subtle, honest portrait, without the bias and exaggeration of the past.

Drawing on new research and dozens of specially commissoned interviews - many with senior members of the royal household who have never spoken before - DIANA:STORY OF A PRINCESS explains how a shy teenager grew up to be the most talked-about woman in the world, and why she later became such a vigorous critic of the Royal Family.

DIANA: STORY OF A PRINCESS is a tale of chicanery at the highest level, revealing in gripping detail how the Princess and her husband sought to influence how their failing marriage, and indeed their entire lives, were perceived by the outside world.

Editorial Reviews


Ground-breaking. The most penetrating portrait yet...the real story behind the lies and propaganda. Daily Mail Stunning insights New York Post An x-ray examination of a woman who threatened the British monarchy Le Figaro the best account yet of the tragedy...A world away from the synthetic soap-opera of most royal accounts. Anyone who advises royalty - not just those on the official payroll - would benefit from reading it. Patrick Jephson, former Private Secretary to Princ DIANA: STORY OF A PRINCESS (the book of the TV series) is a good, plain, lucid, responsible one (book) The Observer a convincing and at times moving portrait The Sunday Telegraph offers something fresh and pure and notably fair. Early on, the authors call the tale they have to tell 'this story of magic and manipulation.' It is greatly to their credit that they have managed to resist being blinded by that magic or succumbing to that manipulation...DIANA:STORY OF A PRINCESS has a reamrkably clear-sighted vision The Mail on Sunday Two authors who also grapple with the problem of rationality are Tim Clayton and Phil Craig, whose intelligent and well-researched DIANA: STORY OF A PRINCESS provides the best account so far of the unlucky lady and her mystifying cult. Ben Pimlott, New Statesman Books of the Year The people's Princess continues to captivate, and this is the most thorough, unbiased account of her too-short life to date. Essential reading for royal fans. Mail on Sunday A real achievement. They find something new and interesting to say about a subject we thought we all knew backwards. Ian Hislop

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting Read August 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Diana: Story of a Princess was very intriguing to read. I have read other books about Diana and all of them seemed to be quite unbiased in their views of not only Diana, but of the relationships she had with Charles her husband and the British Royal Family, otherwise known as the "firm". This book was extremely biased in Diana's direction, but in my opinion it was cleverly written to appear biased when in fact it left me for once genuinely questioning whether she did things for the sake of others or for the sake of self. I doubt we will ever know the real truth about this remarkable and yet to me, clearly disturbed woman.

The pivotal point for me came when Diana dumped 100 charities because she lost her HRH title. In my opinion this, like the Morton book and the Panorama interview was an act of revenge. But did this diminish her capacity for caring for others? No. Regardless of her motives, people did benefit enormously from what she accomplished, and for that I applaud her.

Do I think she was an innocent Saint? Not a hope, but which of us is?

Most enjoyable read!
