Synopsis

Ten years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she “the people’s princess,” who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy? Only Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of Tatler, England’s glossiest gossip magazine; Vanity Fair; and The New Yorker could possibly give us the truth.

Updated with a new foreword.

This is a Diana book with much more smart, snarky flair than most, told by someone who knows the world of aristocratic fairy tales much better than many who inhabit it.
