The history during Diana's life is still undercovered in some aspects. And I think these aspects will be left to future historians to describe them, assess them,and judge them. Actually this book do change a lot of my perceptions about Diana, Princess of Wales because Ms Tina Brown she focused on Diana's sort of celebrity royal and her influence in the world than other royals during her lifetime. Tina Brown is quite insightful in this aspect and she is much sharp in words than other formal biographers.

Now I hope that in my lifetime I can read a biography about Camilla which tries to understand her own real philsophy about love, marriage, and life and some unreported characters.I am still not satisfied Camilla's sole biographies about her life because I seriously sense Camilla has a much sensitive side but she has sensiblity and toughness to cope with unexpected events in her life. She is constant and she is determined so she seldom changes. IMO Camilla can feel a lot but she is not interested which may be interpreted as snooty and insensitivity by some people. And this is her strength and the way she survives after so many storms because she protects herself from thinking about these pains. The funny thing is that I cannot help but believe there are plenty of simlarities in the two women but Diana prefered to reveal and Camilla prefers to hide. May be in the far future these two women will be put together and plus Charles then future generations can see how the three people have changed and are changing the course of the royal history.

I think that the book is too mawkish in the final!

I have read and re-read this book a number of times. I appreciate the the interesting take on Diana's life but have issues with the tone throughout. It more than shows that Tina Brown works for a society magazine (the Tattler) with that certain catty style of writing that is the halmark of a gossipy magazine journalist, or even a society lady with too much time. I also question the idea that she knew Diana well, as I have hardly heard her mentiononed in major works on Diana apart from the article she wrote "The Mouse That Roared". I could be wrong and maybe missed her name, if so please let me know. All in all not a bad book but lacking in the gravitas of a formal biography.

I have a video of the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of York. Been a while since I watched it, but I believe she was one of the journalists who commentated on the wedding that day before attending the service as a friend of the couple.
