If you thought you'd read everything on Diana you are wrong! This is a fascinating book, and shows the power of the Monarchy over anyone stepping out of line. It's intriguing to think what might have become of Diana, and here we get a real sense - from the one person who knew her better than anyone else - her own mother. Loved the bit about Frances' almost idyllic childhood which sets it up nicely for the betrayals that happen later. It's very well done.
