During the last five years of her life, Princess Diana had one friend and confidante who was special to her. She was not part of Diana's social circle; she was not a family friend. That woman was Simone Simmons, a healer who devoted herself to the troubled Princess.
Simone formed a unique bond with Diana. They met almost every day and spent hours on the telephone. Diana opened her heart and mind to Simone, who always told the Princess the unvarnished truth. No subject was taboo, and the two women discussed everything and anything, sharing laughter and tears over cups of chamomile tea. Since Diana appreciated and trusted her friend's candor, Simone got to know the Princess in a way no one else ever did. With Simone, Diana felt confident enough to express her true self.
In 1997, Diana told her friend she wanted Simone to write a book that revealed the truth about her, to "tell it like it is." This is that book. It is truly the last word.
With her extraordinary insight into Diana's life, Simone captures the soul of the Princess and creates a rich and intimate portrait of one of the great icons of the twentieth century. In these pages, Simone describes how it really was: who among the Royals was good to Diana and who was hateful; her need to be in love and to have an affair; her only fling-with John F. Kennedy, Jr.-at the Carlyle hotel; her real relationship with Paul Burrell; why she inflicted self-harm; how she wanted to move to New York or Los Angeles; how Mother Teresa hurt her; why her relationship with Dodi never would have ended in marriage; and her enduring love for Prince Charles.
Though Diana was extremely insecure, with Simone's help and work she became strong and learned that she could heal others around her. Diana: The Last Word is the fascinating story of how she reached that point. It finally settles the unanswered questions of Diana's life and addresses the many revelations that have materialized since her death.
