Outstanding photo-tour of Diana's "Royal" life,
This review is from: Diana: Portrait of a Princess (Hardcover)
This was a hard one to put down. It's full of vivid photographs, organized by various chapters in Princess Diana's life - at least the royal aspect of it. The only reason I gave it 4 (rather than 5) stars was the author of this book (also an "official" Royal photographer) didn't have access to shooting photos of Diana in the last (and happier) stages of her life. A more personal side of Diana seems to be lacking from this book. This is no fault of the photographer - it's clearly because Diana was in an unhappy situation.
The book's a visual feast and mesmerizing to look at. But if you're yearning for a more literal sense of Diana's humanitarian accomplisments, this is not the title with which to accomplish that quest.
