Princess Diana The Lamb To The Slaughterby Joy J. Daymon
Born to privilege, living on the edge of the royal circle, Lady Diana Spencer assumed—like everyone else—that little adjustment would be needed to adapt to her new role, the Princess of Wales and future Queen of England. What everyone, including Diana, failed to factor in was that Charles, at age thirty-three, was not only a confirmed bachelor, surrounded from infancy with people to anticipate and provide his every need, he was also in a long-term, committed relationship. However, it was his duty to marry and provide an heir to the throne of England.
Meanwhile, Diana, almost a generation younger, envisioned (as Edward VIII had) what a modern monarchy could be; how it could be relevant in today's complex society—a monarchy she was determined to have for her son.
That these two forces—the status quo and the Modern England—should clash was inevitable, but no one was prepared for the cataclysmic climax in the story of the Queen England never had—Diana, Princess of Wales, the Lamb to the Slaughter.

Joy Jones Daymon's book, "Princess Diana - The Lamb to the Slaughter" is more than another fan book. I found this book to be an important look at Diana's role in history and much more. Daymon raises some very important questions regarding Diana's life, and death. The book asks if we will ever know how the Royal family of Britain used her, and whether or not her death was truly an accident. The 142-page book is packed with information about British royal history, protocol, and information about the current British royal family. Daymon's book helps the reader to understand what it is like to be a member of the royal family. The book even contains a section on the British dietary concerns of the War Years. This book is a wonderful source of information for anyone interested in British royal history, and customs. "Princess Diana - The Lamb to the Slaughter" is so entertaining I had a lot of trouble putting it down. Daymon seamlessly weaves history, psychology, and Diana trivia into an intelligent, concise, and very readable book.
