Her life has seemed like a fairy-tale come true, yet the shocking truth is that for Diana, Princess of Wales, life has been far from perfect. Written with the cooperation and support of members of Diana's family and her closest friends, Diana: Her True Story reveals a woman trapped in a loveless marriage, who has suffered from chronic illness and loneliness, who has gone to the depths of despair, and who has courageously struggled to create a new life for herself.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shannon | 2/20/2014

    " My heart ached for Diana all over again reading this book. She truly was the "People's Princess" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsy Willing | 2/2/2014

    " As far as auto-biographies go, this one is pretty "droll" you can tell that she was still part of the "establishment" when she made the tapes because even though I am a Diana fan, she paints herself as the absolute victim for every scenario that happens in her life. If it was a true auto-biography, I believe she may have been more honest about her life and opened up more with details from certain events. If you want insight into royal life or the royal family, this is not the book. I recommend one of Paul Burrel's books instead. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 1/26/2014

    " I LOVE Princess Diana, she was a true goddess and she will always be remembered. This book is very detailed but I like it so far! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sheila | 1/24/2014

    " The story of Diana, Princess of Wales, from notes she gave to the author. This was the edition that was updated and revised after her death. Interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathaileen | 1/21/2014

    " Diana supposedly endorsed this book off the record. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danae Samson | 1/17/2014

    " I know that Andrew Morton has caught a lot of flack for this book because of its questionable content. That aside, it is very fascinating and comes across as completely consistent with Diana as a person and as a icon. If only three quarters of the book is accurate, it is still worth a look and the simple memory of who she was will propel you through the pages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angila | 1/14/2014

    " Loved reading about Princess Diana- I followed her until the day she died, and then cried as I watched it on TV. She was very important to me- as a teen girl. She was what we all wanted to be- a common girl that becomes a princess! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Romelle Bohannan | 1/10/2014

    " I really liked this telling of her story. The pictures included were quite nice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 cheri | 11/20/2013

    " OK, I'm embarassed to say this. This is one of like 5 books I read on Princess Diana. I became addicted to her story for some reason, didn't we all? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tree | 3/13/2013

    " I read this book shortly after it was released. While its contents and more are known now, it was BIG and deservedly so for its day. It still serves has an artifact of pop culture, even if Andrew Morton is a bit salacious. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joji Grace | 10/17/2012

    " I wasn't interested in reading about Diana till recently. Glad I chose this book. It's full of British slant and humour. Kept me entertained for hours. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ms. | 8/8/2012

    " As with any book of this nature you have to read it with a grain of salt. Fun for a little bit of reading out of my ordinary genre, but all hear say. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jackie Throngard | 4/21/2012

    " So shocking and a tragedy for a women who really wanted to help the world. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Netta | 3/14/2012

    " Ok, I had a fascination with "fairy tale"... but honestly, it made me extra thankful to lead a "normal-person" life and to have a husband who truly loves me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phil | 2/13/2012

    " It's good that Diana got to have her say. I was sad at her untimely death. I think she would have been happy with her son choosing a "true love" to marry. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luckngrace | 12/13/2011

    " Diana's sadness and loneliness were the themes of this book. Had she lived Diana may have taught the royals some humanity, but this book doesn't do her justice as she tells her story in secret and to line the "friend's" pockets. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 11/18/2011

    " I found this book fascinating, and Andrew Morton's role in the Royal's life also fascinating. There are so many awesome intimate tales of royalty here. Just loved it. I found it interesting that when we lived in England, British people think Andrew Morton is AWFUL for telling the royal's secrets. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 10/24/2011

    " A very poignant and insightful look into the life of "The People's Princess". Shines a light on her life, hopes, dreams and the love she had for her boys. Very well-written. This is a wonderful book for anyone who admired this beautiful lady. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janna | 6/16/2011

    " still remember to this day where I was and what I was doing when she died. She was a witty, smart, beautiful real-life princess "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vikki | 5/9/2011

    " This is what I read and wrote in July 1992 when this book just came out:
    "This book makes me feel sorry for Di. It puts Charles in a bad light. What's wrong with him having a female friend?". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ian | 5/3/2011

    " My wife got this for Christmas......and I read it sometime later when I was bored. I remained bored. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 10/2/2010

    " Interesting to read after I went to see the traveling exhibit "Diana, Princess of Wales". Some parts of the book were repetitive. First in Diana's own words and then again when the narrator, Andrew Morton, told the same story.
    I really didn't know much about her and think now I do? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luckngrace | 6/18/2010

    " Diana's sadness and loneliness were the themes of this book. Had she lived Diana may have taught the royals some humanity, but this book doesn't do her justice as she tells her story in secret and to line the "friend's" pockets. "

    " Finally got around to reading the book. A treat to glean information first hand.

    It was interesting as her death occurred while I was flying back from Europe. "
