Majesty Magazine is to mark the tenth anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales with a superb 132-page, A4-size celebration of her life.
Lavishly illustrated, it will examine her early years, her marriage, her role as mother to a future king, her legacy and much, much more.

I think the DianaStyle looks interesting. Hopefully, it will have new pictures!

Thank you for posting these. I did not realize there were so many new ones coming out.

Thank you for listing these books. I've got my eye on the Diana the portrait. She looks amazing on the cover.

There is also a new DVD on Princess Diana from the Daily Mail.

There are a lot of books about Princess Diana Life. I believe, there is much speculation. After ten years. Diana is remember for many people in the world.

Fresh Look At Princess Di

How did Prince Charles feel when Diana died? Why did the princess predict her own death? Is Prince Harry really Charles's son?

I read the excerpt and it is hilarious, the 'facts' this chap comes out with, he must have an over active imagination ....... he can even tell us, with authority that Camilla on hearing the news grabbed her ciggies from the nightstand...... Oh please!

Total pap. He's gotten numerous facts wrong just in the first two pages. I wouldn't waste my money on this one if I was dared to. :rofl:

That's garbage...I didn't like Lady Diana's behaviors in the last years she was married to Prince Charles. But I don't believe that Prince of Wales is not Prince Harry's father. Unless they may prove it, I wouldn't believe it. They must be ashamed of writing such a things. The poor young man could read it and feel extremely badly. Authors must be more responsible when writing a book about a public personality. :bang:

Does Christopher Anderson have citations in his books? Endnotes, anything? I think I remember picking up (but not buying) in a bookstore his last book on Diana's sons, and it didn't have notes.
That is one thing that bugs me about Ingrid Seward, she never sources her info. and it is annoying as anything, although I'm aware of her reasonably good standing as Majesty editor, but she really lets me down in this area.... What do these people think, we take what they write on good faith? :bang: Having notes in the books is the first thing I check for in any piece of non-fiction. How can these authors stand to write these biographies of living people and not have notes? They make these wild accusations and don't have any sources????

CasiraghiTrio 06-05-2007 09:00 PM

I wish someone like Ben Pimlott or some academic would take her biography on, though. I know it's not likely. I just wish we could have a real authoritative book about her, with sources, academically and credibly done.
Forget this rubbish from wannabe's like Anderson, Seward.... Kay with his "impeccable source", I don't know if he's done a book on her yet, but he is probably writing one.... Seward is all right, I guess, but it bugs me how she doesn't source any of her statements. I expect more from Majesty editor.
On a positive note, at least we are done with Lady Colin Campbell, or seem to be done with her. She seems to have disappeared, and thank goodness....
:biggrin:

Lady Colin is still about. Here's a link to a video interview with her where she mentions her Diana tome.

Diana - 'The People's Princess' by Nicholas Owen
 
Hi

I am new to this forum and came across it while searching for some photographs, after buying a new book yesterday.

I purchased 'The People's Princess' by Nicholas Owen, with a foreward by Sir Trevor McDonald. With the book being by two of Britain's respected broadcasters, I expected it to be at least an accurate portrait of her life. So wrong!

In part one, page 22, there is a photo with the tagline 'A pensive Diana a month before her engagement was announced' - but the picture is from Auckland in 1983, not the picture below but from the same engagement (the book photo is the one of her beneath an umbrella, holding the top of her coat together)

http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p.../dianarain.jpg

Then a little further on, page 53, is a photo with the tagline 'Sharing a joke with her sister-in-law, Princess Anne in 1992...but it's a picture of Anne and Diana at the Derby in 1986??? Not the picture I have shown, but the one of the two of them laughing

http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p...dianaderby.jpg

How can a book, published to mark 10 years of her passing, make such ridiculous mistakes????

Am I being petty I wonder????!

I also purchased 'Diana The Intimate Portrait' by Judy Wady and 'The Diana Chronicles' by Tina Brown...but after seeing the first part of the serialisation in the Daily Mail, I wish I had not bothered!!

On order I have 'Diana: Myth and Reality' by Ted Harrison and 'Diana Style' by Colin McDowell
