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? Tina Brown knew Diana personally, knows her world, understands its players, and has far-reaching insight into the royals and the Queen herself. In "The Diana Chronicles", you will meet a formidable female cast and get to know the society they inhabit...as you never have before. Diana's sexually charged mother, her subtly scheming grandmother, the stepmother she hated but eventually came to understand, and a terrifying trio of in-laws and relations: Fergie, the force of nature whose life was full of its own unacknowledged pathos; Princess Margaret, the fading glamour girl; and, the implacable Queen Mother and more formidable than all of them, her mother-in-law, the Queen, whose admiration Diana sought till the day she died. Add Camilla Parker-Bowles, the ultimate 'other woman' into this combustible mix, and it's no wonder that Diana felt the need to break out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect.

Tina Brown may get a lot of flak for publishing this book on the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana's death. Ignore it. she has done a first rate job of teasing out the truth, as far as she was able to establish it, and has delivered a book, which is totally even handed. No one is beyond her criticism including her subject but at the same time she manages to point out the good characteristics of nearly all the players in this almost 20 year old soap opera. She writes well and the narrative clips along at a good pace. Hard to put down

Don't waste your money...
...I'm glad I didn't, I borrowed it from a friend. I don't normally read biographies but I had always like Princess Diana. There is nothing new in this book, pretty much everything you would have already read or heard about on tv. And the author, in my opinion, came off a little snippy and superior at times in her discriptions and thinly veiled opinions of Diana. I skimmed many a chapter and was thoroughly disappointed.
