Publisher's Summary

The sensational biography of Princess Diana, now revised to commemorate the 20th anniversary of her death.
When Diana: Her True Story - in Her Own Words was first published in 1992, it forever changed the way the public viewed the British monarchy. Greeted initially with disbelief and ridicule, the number-one New York Times best-selling biography has become a unique literary classic, not just because of its explosive contents but also because of Diana's intimate involvement in the publication. Never before had a senior royal spoken in such a raw, unfiltered way about her unhappy marriage, her relationship with the queen, her extraordinary life inside the House of Windsor, her hopes, her fears, and her dreams. Now, 25 years on, biographer Andrew Morton has revisited the secret tapes he and the late princess made to reveal startling new insights into her life and mind. In this fully revised edition of his groundbreaking biography, Morton considers Diana's legacy and her relevance to the modern royal family.
An icon in life and a legend in death, Diana continues to fascinate. Diana: Her True Story - in Her Own Words is the closest we will ever come to her autobiography.

Wonderful overall with one issue...

What made the experience of listening to Diana the most enjoyable?

Carolyn Langrishe's performance.


What did you like best about this story?

The excerpts in Princess Diana's own words.


Any additional comments?

The issue is the reading by Michael Maloney. He has a voice that sounds as if there is an adenoid issue or stuffed up nose. The actor John Welsh of "Duchess of Duke Street" had the same delivery. So very distracting.

Tale of a whiny woman

Would you listen to Diana again? Why?

No. I got tired of her endless whining...


Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew Morton again?

well, he ghost wrote her words, so probably yes.


Which character – as performed by Michael Maloney and Caroline Langrishe – was your favorite?

Dianna is the main character.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Don't bother.


Any additional comments?

I can't say anything because I know I am a minority in that I think she was a whiny, immature woman, but the story makes it clear she never really grew up. That said, that's not reason to lose one's life, that is, and always be, unfortunate.
