Rate this:
Based on the groundbreaking ITV/The Learning Channel documentary series, and drawn from years of research and dozens of interviews with friends and associates speaking on the record for the first time, Diana contains never-before-revealed information and stunning insights about the beloved -- and largely misunderstood -- Princess of Wales.
From claims that Diana was ready to leave Charles just weeks before the wedding to her lifelong battle against depression, from world-exclusive interviews with Diana's beau James Hewitt and her "surrogate mother-in-law" Shirley Hewitt to details about the unconventional "arrangements" in the royal household -- between Diana and James, Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles -- Diana is an honest, objective, and unparalleled biography.
With thirty-two photographs -- including several never before published -- Diana shows all facets of this fascinating woman: her magic, her manipulations, her dazzling public persona, and her place in her people's hearts and history.

Authors Tim Clayton and Phil Craig give an overly detailed account of Princess Diana's life beginning in her childhood and ending with her funeral in 1997. I suppose the biography acts as an eye-opener for me as I no longer see the princess as Saint Diana and now wonder if she was a social narcissist who if she had received proper psychological treatment would have suffered less and caused others less grief.

I find the biography grim.
