Overview


An updated edition of Andrew Morton's New York Times–bestselling biography of Diana
 
When Andrew Morton's Diana: Her True Story was first published, it caused a media frenzy, severely jolted the royal family and the palace hierarchy, and shook the British establishment to its foundations. Later revealed as having been written with the Princess's full cooperation, this book is now widely regarded as her official biography. Yet it was not the full story, nor could it have been, given the circumstances at the time. This is even more apparent in the light of the events that have occurred since her death, which have been played out under the harsh gaze of the media, once again catapulting Diana's name back into the spotlight. Figures such as her sometime lover James Hewitt, her butler Paul Burrell, and Prince Charles's valet, Michael Fawcett, have emerged, while intriguing comments that Diana made to Morton in taped conversation have become extremely important in view of subsequent events. Friends, advisers, and colleagues, interviewed years after her death, feel a far greater freedom in speaking of her than they once did. In what is bound to be seen as the definitive study of the princess in the most crucial period of her short life, this book provides the last word on one of the best-loved figures of our era.

    Tawdry

    Frankly, I disliked author Andrew Morton from the moment he revealed years ago that Diana was behind the Diana: Her True Story book. This served no good purpose. About this book I found little to improve my opinion of the author. Very critical and it comes across as a crude man who has the power to take a pen and paper and assault a classy lady and doing everything he can to twist and distort in hopes of whacking away at her memory, her status as the biological mother of the future king and her excellent humanitarian work throughout the world. Such authors try to reduce Diana's importance by telling us why we behaved in the manner we did when she died. No it was not mass hysteria or that we loved the media image of her. She actually visited untouchable places around the world and raised millions for charity. That is not a media image but pure gold fact. Unlike the rest of the royal family 'her ex-husband in particular' she did not need to hire experts to rescue her public image. She mantained a beautiful public image by consistently doing good for those less fortunate. So she made a positive difference to help the needy and was loved by billions around the world because of her work. Why can't these authors and royals let it go at that?

    Unimpressive

    I was disappointed in the overall book. Andrew Morton has changed since he wrote Diana: Her True Story. I can't say it is for the better. Granted the text is much easier to read, but he seems to have changed his attitude toward Diana. He seems to have warmed to the Royal Family's views concerning the Princess. Also, if I could have given Mr. Morton some advice before this book was printed, I would have strongly recommended he steer clear of Patrick Jephson. That is if Mr. Morton wanted his book to have credibility. Confusing book at times. I had a difficult time sorting out the direction Mr. Morton was taking. In one chapter he is praising the Spencers and condemning Paul Burrell but later in the chapter, he seems to turn on the Spencers. Very confusing! Further, I am one of many who believe Princess Diana was murdered. So I do not like for writers to pronounce the conspiracy theories as hogwash. Technically unless they have proof(and I don't see how they could have proof) their opinion is no different than mine. All opinions(for or against) are still only theories.

    A Great Book

    In starting this book I thought it was going to be a rerun of HER TRUE STORY. But I was proved wrong. The accurate detailes of the royal family after her death were very informative, along with her boyfriend Dodi Al - Fayed. I found the book interesting and it is the one of the best Diana books I have ever read.
