Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

More than 20 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?

The Diana Chronicles parts the curtains on Diana's troubled time in the mysterious world of the Windsors, as she breaks out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect. 

Knowing Diana personally, Tina Brown understands her world, understands its players and has reaching insight into the royals and the queen herself. Meet the formidable female cast and get to know the society they inhabit, as you never have before.

An exercise in circumlocution.

I gave up with this book after two chapters. Anyone who had never heard of Diana, Princess of Wales and looking for a simple outline description of the person to start with would be none the wiser after reading this heavy and unnecessary use of multiple words that at the end conveyed nothing other than the author’s love of words.

A very detailed and balanced biography of Diana.

The author captures Diana's shadow side and her great humanity in an unvarnished retelling of her life.
