Publisher's Summary

Reissued for the 20th anniversary of Diana's death, this sensational best seller is an explosive account of her life, from the man who was by her side throughout its most turbulent period.
In 1981 Lady Diana Spencer was seen by many as a lifeline for the outdated Windsor line. But Diana didn't follow the script. Instead she brought a revolution.
Patrick Jephson was Diana's closest aide and adviser during her years of greatest public fame and deepest personal crisis. He witnessed the disintegration of her marriage to Prince Charles and the negotiation of the royal divorce.
Rooted in unique firsthand experience, Shadows of a Princess is an authoritative, balanced account of one of the world's most famous and tragic women.

Critic Reviews

"The most indelible, authentic word-portrait ever painted of the People's Princess." (The Daily Mail)
"Never has so senior a servant of the Royal Family decided to reveal his secrets and rarely has one witnessed such turbulent times." (The Times)
"Jephson's revelations are important. They are a stark corrective to the baroque fantasies constructed around the Princess immediately after her death." (Evening Standard)

Story appears to be against the beautiful person Diana was

Will not finish this book and will get my money back to purchase the real story of Diana in her own words!
