Like the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the tragic death of the Princess of Wales on 31st august 1997 is one of those defining benchmarks in history - an event that touched each of us so profoundly that we will never forget the moment we heard the news. For all Diana's global fame, much of the human drama that swirled around her death remains veiled in mystery and intrigue. Now, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources, to recreate the events leading up to that fateful night in Paris. He provides information about Diana's final moments alive, about the accident itself, and what no one knew about the other convicted drunk driver in the car that night. He reveals Prince Charles' surprising reaction to the news of Diana's death, including his shock the first time he saw her body; the Queen's bizarre request, and an account of how Princes William and Harry coped with their shock and grief. He examines the behind-the-scenes battle that raged between the Queen and Prince Charles in the days leading up to the funeral. He also provides final answers to persistent rumours that Diana was pregnant at the time of the accident, that cocaine was found in the car, and that she was the victim of a murder plot.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
