Lady Colin Campbell has a distorted view of Diana, Princess of Wales. Her sources, aunts of friends who heard something etc are not accurate and I feel this book is meant for the American market where they have an extraordinary love for this poor troubled and devious woman.

An Insider Tells the Story 26 May 2008
By Barbara Badham - Published on
As with many Diana books, I wasn't expecting much. But the author is an English aristocrat herself who had spent two decades in royal circles, so she had a couple of advantages here--amazing access to the witnesses of the inside story, a surprising number of whom were willing to go "on the record" with their thoughts, and an ability to translate the nuances of upper crust sensibilities for the ruck. She was also not bashful about portraying the faults of Charles and Diana with great clarity, although she deserves credit for highlighting their strengths as well. Perhaps the most surprising thing to me was that she wrote this book five years before Diana died, even before the Waleses' divorce, yet she seemed to get all elements of the story right--while their relationship was still in progress and before a commonly accepted version of events had formed in the public awareness. As one reviewer said, "The picture Lady Colin Campbell draws makes so much sense, it must be true." I ended the book thinking that she had gotten her facts straight and that she mustn't be very popular at the Palace.

Diane in private 17 Dec. 2007
By Barbara Rogan - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is a very well written detailed description of Diane's weaknesses and strengths. Lady Colin Campbell was totally fair in her estimation of how Diane's personality could and did devastate the emotions of many of her close relations with staff , friends and family.Her primary goal was to be the centre of attention in whatever area of life she was connected to and she was blinded to how much hurt and chaos she caused to as many people as she showed kindness to.
It can't be blamed on her childhood as the point is proved in her determined efforts to become the princess of Wales. Once the emotional efforts she used to achieve her prince paid off she focused on using her power to try to control every avenue of her life to persuade others that she was worthy to have all things her way. Her persausive charms led millions to the hysteria shown on the aftermath of her accidental death.
Lady Colin Campbell wrote an honest description of Diane's personality. She was very generous in her many compliments of Diane too so this is a well balanced description.
