In A Royal Duty, Paul Burrell reveals the truth about Princess Diana, as well as a faithful account of her thoughts. He was the favourite footman who formed a unique relationship with the Queen. He was the butler who the Princess of Wales called my rock and the only man I can trust. He was accused of theft, then acquitted following the historic intervention of the monarch. He was the Princess' most intimate confidant - and may be the only person able to separate the myth from the truth of the Diana years. Download and start listening now!

    " Loved this insiders view into the life of Princess Diana. Some fault him for spilling the beans, but I feel he needed to get his story out. Loved this book! As would any royal-wanna be. Darned if I am not too old for Prince Harry. Buggar! "

    " Gives an interesting insight into the private life of Princess Diana and the royal family. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Morag Gray | 2/4/2014

    " A hagiographic account of Diana, Princess of Wales. Burrell offers some interserting insights into what it was like working at Buckingham Palace, Highgrove and Kensington Palace. He obviously adored Diana. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mew | 2/2/2014

    " not my usual type of book... surprisingly gripping! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nbelusky | 1/31/2014

    " Gives an interesting insider's perspective on what it's like to serve the British royal family. Nothing really new about Diana that we didn't already know. The Spencers come across as selfish and ignorant and the Windsors are oblivious to the daily lives of those who serve them. It is a thankless job. But Burrell clearly loved serving at Buckingham Palace and that is the best part of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly | 10/27/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gerilyn | 7/10/2013

    " This book exposes my shameless obsession with British royalty--it was a real insider's (read: voyeur's) view and I am embarrased to say I loved the whole crazy story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bronwyn | 8/27/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evett DiBianco | 8/14/2012

    " A story told from one of Princess Diana's staff. A heart breaking story with a happy ending. Truly shows how wonderful a person Princess Di was and continues to be through those she encountered and touched. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 1/31/2012

    " This was perhaps one of the better if not best books I've read from an insider in her life, very good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tammy Mortensen | 11/20/2011

    " This book was highly recommended to me, but I only thought it was so-so. If you are an avid Princess Diana fan, you would love it. It gives the details of her marriage and life as a princess. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannie | 3/28/2011

    " Exactly as expected. Trite, boastful and full of tidbits about Diana. I liked her better after reading it, but the author is downright creepy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janet | 8/28/2010

    " Interesting book - it gives a first-hand account of life within the British Royal Family and the sacrifices of those who serve. Paul tried to keep things in perspective regarding the Walses marriage and devotion to their sons. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey | 10/9/2009

    " An interesting look behind the scenes of the royal family. He did become overly devoted to Diana at the end, but overall it was interesting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marats | 10/8/2009

    " Much more interesting, than I thought! Poor Paul and Diana! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 6/20/2009
