An icon remembered as vividly in death as she appeared in life, Diana,
Princess of Wales, is one of the most enduring personalities of the twentieth
century, and one of the most enigmatic. Admired, almost worshiped, a
forceful presence in society and fashion and a devoted mother, she was
also plagued by rumor and scandal throughout her brief life. Using
exclusive new interviews and eyewitness testimony, Sarah Bradford now
casts aside the gossip and lies to separate myth from truth.
follows her old-fashioned courtship by the Prince of Wales, as the
world began aiming its cameras at the entrancing princess-bride. Drawing
on fresh interviews with those close to Diana, some of whom have never
spoken on the record before, Bradford sheds new light on the collapse of
the marriage once hailed as the ultimate fairy tale. She examines
Diana's lovers and her relationships with staff, friends, and family, as
well as her profound commitment to charity. Finally, she documents
Diana's struggle to find an identity after her seperation from Charles,
her final complicated year as a single woman, and the world's
overwhelming reaction to her death.
Sympathetic but clear-eyed,
with the authority missing from all previous accounts, acclaimed royal
biographer Sarah Bradford delivers a complex and striking study of one
of the most popular figures of the twentieth century.
