When Princess Diana died in August 1997, the nation mourned for a woman they felt they had come to know intimately. They had witnessed the quiet, blushing Lady Diana Spencer transform into an elegant, stylish ambassador who tirelessly campaigned for the causes in which she believed. It was through Diana that the public came to see a warmer, more caring side of the monarchy. With the announcement of her untimely death came an unprecedented wave of collective grieving for the woman the people felt was one of them. But who was the real Princess Diana? Away from the gaze of the public and the glare of the media, the confident style icon was a woman who preferred high street styles to high fashion and who wandered barefoot around her home, relaxing in Marks and Spencer and Laura Ashley dresses. In this revealing book, royal expert Judy Wade uncovers the woman behind the public's princess, and speaks to some of Diana's closest friends and confidantes to reveal the truth about her. They take you inside her Kensington Palace apartment, describing how she cleaned her own bath, worried about her weight and nagged her sons to improve their manners, just like any other mum. They tell of her secret plan to marry a man who shared her desire to help the sick and suffering, her violent row with Dodi Fayed just before they died, and the real reason she went on a last mission to Australia. This informative book also looks at Diana's manipulation of the media following her expulsion from the royal family, the impact that her death had on the monarchy, plus the police investigation and subsequent inquest into the crash that killed her. This is a fascinating look at a woman who was so many things to so many different people.
