The publication in 1992 of Andrew Morton's Diana: Her True Story shook the British Royal family to its very foundations. Initially greeted with disbelief, as time passed, it became clear that the book was, as its title claimed, Diana's true story.

Diana's friends were hopeful that separation from Charles would bring Diana freedom to find happiness. But has it? With her marriage in limbo and her children only occasionally by her side, Diana's position in the royal family is one of increasing isolation. Diana: Her New Life chronicles the secret battles that have raged behind closed doors, and Diana's frustration as she tries to break free from the restrictions of her semi-detached royal life.

Again with unprecedented access to some of Diana's closest friends, Andrew Morton strips away the royal propaganda and reveals how Diana is learning to become a woman in her own right not a puppet of the palace, and shares Diana's private thoughts on retirement from public life, remarriage, the men in her life, and the grooming of Prince William for his future role.

    " 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?". "

    " 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. "

  • 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. "
