Diana: The Portrait

Overview Princess Diana. Few names conjure so many images—of life and vitality, of royalty and tragedy—and of a short life lived to the fullest. The tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, shook the world. No one who lived through those days in the late summer of 1997 will ever forget the unprecedented outpourings of grief, shock, and anger that followed. And in the days leading up to her funeral, it seemed as if the whole of humanity had spontaneously united to mourn her loss. But who was this young woman who had come to symbolize so much to so many?

Overview

Princess Diana. Few names conjure so many images—of life and vitality, of royalty and tragedy—and of a short life lived to the fullest.

The tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, shook the world. No one who lived through those days in the late summer of 1997 will ever forget the unprecedented outpourings of grief, shock, and anger that followed. And in the days leading up to her funeral, it seemed as if the whole of humanity had spontaneously united to mourn her loss.

But who was this young woman who had come to symbolize so much to so many? How was it that she could reach out to touch lives not only of whole communities but individuals, too? What lay behind her inspiration—and what will be the lasting impact of her legacy?

No book yet written about Diana has come close to the person so many people speak of as having been a beacon of light in their lives. Here, for the first time, is the Diana that many of those closest to her knew.

Written with the full cooperation of the late princess's estate, Diana: The Portrait tells Diana's story through her own words and the words of people, both famous, and, until now, unknown. Beautifully designed, it is a lavishly illustrated with nearly 500 images of Diana, including many pictures never previously published, taken from sources including the Spencer family archive, the Althorp Museum, the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund archive, and the private collections of the friends, charities, and individuals whose lives she touched.

Drawing on over 200 original interviews, including those of family members and friends, many of whom have never spoken before, this remarkable book will stand as a unique and lasting testament to the life and work of one of the extraordinary and enduring icons of the 20th century.

    Moved by This Book

    I thumbed through this book which was in the collection at The Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts, and immediately decided to buy it. The Peace Abbey contains the best in art and writings, as well as spiritual emblems, from around the world. The peace and love that was Diana shines in these pages. It is touching to see her own handwriting and to realize that it takes only love and caring to make a difference in the hearts and lives of people. A beautiful book.
