The life of Diana, Princess of Wales, has never before been told with such insight and authority. This book is a subtle, honest portrait, without the bias and exaggeration of the past.

Drawing on new research and dozens of specially commissoned interviews – many with senior members of the royal household who have never spoken before – DIANA:STORY OF A PRINCESS explains how a shy teenager grew up to be the most talked-about woman in the world, and why she later became such a vigorous critic of the Royal Family.

DIANA: STORY OF A PRINCESS is a tale of chicanery at the highest level, revealing in gripping detail how the Princess and her husband sought to influence how their failing marriage, and indeed their entire lives, were perceived by the outside world.


the best account yet of the tragedy...A world away from the synthetic soap-opera of most royal accounts. Anyone who advises royalty - not just those on the official payroll - would benefit from reading it.

An x-ray examination of a woman who threatened the British monarchy

a convincing and at times moving portrait
The Sunday Telegraph
The people's Princess continues to captivate, and this is the most thorough, unbiased account of her too-short life to date. Essential reading for royal fans.
Mail on Sunday
Ground-breaking. The most penetrating portrait yet...the real story behind the lies and propaganda.
Daily Mail
...it offers something fresh and pure and notably fair. Early on, the authors call the tale they have to tell 'this story of magic and manipulation.' It is greatly to their credit that they have managed to resist being blinded by that magic or succumbing to that manipulation...DIANA:STORY OF A PRINCESS has a reamrkably clear-sighted vision
The Mail on Sunday
Two authors who also grapple with the problem of rationality are Tim Clayton and Phil Craig, whose intelligent and well-researched DIANA: STORY OF A PRINCESS provides the best account so far of the unlucky lady and her mystifying cult.
Ben Pimlott, New Statesman Books of the Year
A real achievement. They find something new and interesting to say about a subject we thought we all knew backwards.
Ian Hislop
Stunning insights
New York Post
