Although this is pitched as a 'tribute', and therefore a certain amount of 'fluff' is to be expected, the lack of material addressing Diana's enduring legacy and appeal is puzzling and frustrating to say the least. The exhaustive French and British enquiries into the accident, the self-important ranting of Mohamed al-Fayed, the conspiracy theories and apportioning of blame, the post-Diana attitude of the wider public to the British Royal family, the ultimate 'triumph' and grudging acceptance of Camilla Parker-Bowles as Charles' second wife, and the continuing media harassment of those in the public eye are obviously subjects of too sobering a nature to be of interest to the writers. Nonetheless, the "Diana: A Celebration" touring exhibition from Althorp, the work of the Memorial Fund, the exhibition "Diana, Princess of Wales by Mario Testino" at Kensington Palace (2005), and other events commemorating Diana's life and work over the intervening fourteen years would have been eminently suitable for inclusion.Read more ›

Furthermore, numerous of the photos used were grainy, which I feel is unacceptable with the quality of publication and photography. These grainy photographs were not long-range photos, either, but similar shots of photos we see "regularly", such as one of Diana with Mother Teresa.

The style was juvenile, far too much slang was used for a journalistic book, and it often either repeated irrelevant information (numerous, unnecessary, references were made to William and Kate's wedding...over and over again!) or commented upon information that I found not only unnecessary but close to disturbing. (Information that may perfectly well be true, but is inappropriate to mention for any reason whatsoever.Read more ›
