Meet the Author

Lady Colin Campbell has for the last four decades been a pre-eminent figure in international society and a fixture in gossip columns in the UK and the US as well as being a writer respected for her accuracy, outspokenness and fearless courage. Connected to the Royal Family through mutual ancestors and marriage, she is the author of the London Times and New York Times bestseller Diana in Private (1992) and the acclaimed posthumous The Real Diana, as well as several other successful books, some royal, others not. An attractive and articulate television presence who has retained the looks which made her a supermodel in the late 60s/ early 70s, she has over the years been a frequent contributor to all the major television channels on both sides of the Atlantic, including CNN, Fox TV, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Japanese TV, ITV and the BBC. Her list of royal scoops is second to none. It was she who first revealed that Diana had an eating disorder; a psychiatric history; would be separated, then divorced; and would lose her royal title, amongst other firsts. She is frequently credited by publications worldwide with having written the best of all the Diana biographies, of which the following People Magazine quote is typical: Some Palace watchers note that she has an impressive roster of well-placed contacts and credit her with writing the most believable Diana biography. She lives with her two sons in London and frequently visits the south of France, where the family has a chateau. She is a noted dog and cat lover whom the journalist Lynn Barber said is the greatest gossip since Pepys; and Jenny Johnson of the Daily Mail claims she is the most entertaining person alive.

IF YOU LIKE DOMINICK DUNNE, YOU WILL LIKE THIS BOOK. MR. DUNNE IS A MUCH BETTER WRITER, BUT LADY CAMPBELL TELLS A GOOD STORY. (sorry lcc) FROM WHAT I'VE READ THE PRINITING OF THIS BOOK WAS STOPPED IN THE UK BECAUSE IT RESEMBLES A REAL STORY. AND IF YOU KNOW THE PLAYERS IT IS CERTAINLY WORTH THE READ. IT'S A FIN LOOK INTO THE RICH AND FAMOUS. TO FINISH THE LAST 50 PAGES I SAT IN THE CAR. AND I KNEW THE ENDING!
