'Britain is buzzing about THE REAL DIANA' -- Victoria Mather, The Early Show, CBS News, 29 November 2004
From the Publisher
I was struck by readers' comments about the US edition of The Real Diana, published by St Martins in 1998. Arcadia has just published an updated, revised UK edition (late 2004) which was front-page news (Mail on Sunday) and which made headlines around the world including the US. Time has moved on since 1998 and, in many readers' eyes, Diana is seen as less of a saint these days. I find it hard to believe that Lady Colin Campbell's book would have received such considerable media coverage without a real basis in the truth of her story. Let's also not forget that her first book Diana in Private was attacked by the media on publication - and then that the veracity of her book was later widely acknowledged. Sometimes, of course, it is hard to see that our heroines have feet of clay.See all Product Description

A good read if you like all things royal. Recommend it.
No-one reading this book can deny that Diana loved Charles deeply and anything she did... the tantrums, the affairs etc were her way of trying to gain his attention and win him back. I think it is also obvious from the book that Charles did indeed love Diana too and one is left feeling utterly heartbroken for the wonderful King and Queen we will never have! One is also left feeling that these two people could have had a long and glorious reign together to the utter delight and enchantment of the whole world if only they could have got the help and advise they so badly needed.
My only critism about the book is how the author blantly claims that Diana had an abortion on the heresay of "an Earl's daughter" since the author said that she cannot say that Diana was pregnant at the time of her death because there was no concrete evidence to support this fact then I feel that she should also have excercised this fairness of judgement regarding the abortion claim for which there is also no concrete evidence.
I would definitely recommend this book to any Diana fan...with the warning be prepared to reach the end page loving and missing her more than ever!
