Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Diana ‹ Her Last Love is an account of the late Princess of Wales¹ relationship with Pakistani heart surgeon Hasnat Khan. It discloses how they met at a London hospital, and how, for the last two years of Diana¹s life, they managed to keep their affair largely secret. Placing the story in context with the whole of Diana¹s life, author Kate Snell looks at Diana¹s fascination with Islam and the East. She also pieces together evidence suggesting that when Dr. Khan broke off their relationship, Diana planned several strategies to win him back, including using the media and Dodi Fayed to make the doctor jealous. The details of how Diana deliberately orchestrated the photos and news stories of her romance with Mr. Fayed will interest many readers, but at the heart of the story is a sensitive and believable portrait of a woman who wished to be loved for herself. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Based upon what other Amazon.com reviewers had to say, I didn't expect much from this book, but I was pleasantly surprised. The writing is good, a little hero-worshiping of Diana comes through, but that's tolerable. I notice the author only interviewed some of the more wacko or cheeseball "friends" of Diana (Simone Simmons, the faith healer, taken seriously?? but I guess Diana took her seriously at one time). However, at least you learn more about Hasnat Khan & his background (sounds like a really nice person, and all his family too). I can't agree with the author that Diana was a stronger person at the end of her life -- she seemed to me to be very immature still. Imagine taking up with Dodi Fayed to make another man jealous, sure he was a multi-millioniare but please, the guy had had so many women (what did he tell Diana about his fiance, Kelly Fisher??), and there was his drug habit...I wouldn't touch him with a barge pole. That's mature, strong behavior on Diana's part? I think she was so devastated when Dr. Khan finally broke it off, that she went into a tailspin & into her old, self-destructive, immature behavior. Manipulative, too, if you believe that she planned for the "Kiss" picture and the others being taken (which I believe). The author doesn't agree with my thoughts, but she doesn't force the issue, she just mentions that other friends thought Diana sounded strong at what turned out to be the end of her life. It's an interesting book, not the best one on Diana, but thoughtful and brings out some unknown background on her relationship with Hasnat Khan.

Very little has been written since Diana's death which is new. Very little was written about her while she was alive that was worth reading. Many people believed she was an empty-headed, spoilt girl with a privileged upbringing, who went mad. But that isn't true. Most people only knew her as the woman on the front of every magazine in the world. Everyone was shocked to the core when she died, but surely that shared shock doesn't make sense if she was so insubstantial!
This book fills in the missing pieces. It tells us things we never knew about Diana. It is not gossip, but fact, heard first-hand from some of Diana's closest friends and confidantes.
We all knew, subconsciously, that Diana was more than just a face. In fact she was an amazing woman. Not many people could have survived the pressures she had to cope with and emerged as a stronger person with the ability to shake the world's governments. Nobody has ever looked for what inspired this great change in Diana. The answer is that she had at last found a man she wanted to marry; a man who inspired her in her quest to help the sick and suffering. He was a heart surgeon; she called him 'Mr Wonderful'. She took her love for him to her grave.
Diana:Her last Love tells for the first time the complete story of Diana's love for Dr Hasnat Khan. It explains where Dodi fitted into the picture (she was certainly not in love with Dodi); how she and Prince Charles became great friends towards the end of her life, and how she came to terms with Camilla.
It is a sad story, but also heart-warming, in that it makes you appreciate for the first time just how special this woman was.
Unusually for a biography, this is a very easy book to read. I read it at one sitting.

This is the most sensitively written book so far about Princess Diana, showing her as a complete and whole person seen through the eyes of her different friends. This tells the story of her last love, Dr. Hasnat Khan, a heart surgeon and a great man, whom most people will never have heard of, but who gave Diana true happiness in the last two years of her life. This book is 100% factual. Dr. Khan was Diana's last love with whom she found this pleasurable experience reciprocated for the first time in her life without any affectations.
This is definitely a book to be read by all seeking the truth about Diana's final years and who want to read the detailed facts of one of the greatest love stories kept under wraps until now.

After reading this book, I am convinced that the author speaks the truth. Hasnat Khan's name comes up in several books, and they all state Diana felt strongly for him. I do believe she was with Dodi Fayed to make Mr. Khan jealous. I certainly can picture her with a heart surgeon more easily than I can with a playboy who didn't know what to do with all his money. I also read Paul Burrell's book, "A Royal Duty" and he alludes to Diana's true love, though he doesn't give him a name. He does say it was not Dodi. I believe that had Diana lived, she would have possibly married Hasnat Khan, or at least maintained a loving relationship with him. She didn't know Dodi well enough to even think of marrying him; the relationship was simply a summer fling. It's sad that she did not live to see that happiness with Dr. Khan come to fruition.

Hasnat Khan may have been Diana's last love, but from the state of their relationship at the time of Diana and Dodi's cruises, the good doctor may equally have been her last heartbreak. The relationship with Khan was longer, but her relationship with Dodi was cut short by the crash so we really do not know what might have happened over the next two or three years.
I am not certain if at the time of her death if she was still contemplating a marriage to Dr. Khan. After all, he had pretty much made it clear he was not willing to take the necessary steps to marry Diana -- and I think this hurt her very much. Maybe by the time she cruised with Dodi, she was already thinking Doctor Khan was a lost cause.

If Diana's love for the doctor was as strong as the Ms. Snell implies, Khan refusal to make the one big commitment may have ended what affection she held for him. The lack of commitment likely was interpreted by the princess as another rejection. At that point, she may have decided to wash her hands of him and start looking elsewhere.

From reading the book I do not think Kate Snell is a particular fan of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. We all know Diana was not perfect since no one is, but I found the attacks on Diana's character to be rather harsh. Books on Charles typically are written with the approval of the palace, and penned by fawning supporters -- something most Diana books lack. The author made the point that Diana still maintained a friendship with Khan's family (to prove the seriousness of the Khan relationship) but maybe Diana truly liked and respected his family despite Khan's failure toward a marriage commitment with the princess.

The last disagreement with Khan may have been the final straw for Diana.
