Everyone should read this book!,
This review is from: A Royal Duty (Hardcover)
If, like me, you formed a negative opinion of Paul Burrell with everything you've seen in the media, I strongly suggest you read this book. Not only is it a fascinating insight into behind the scenes in the Royal Family, but you will also realise that the media has created a totally inaccurate impression of Paul Burrell and the content of his book. From reading this book, which was difficult to put down, the most significant impression I gained is that he cared deeply and sincerely about Diana, and that he has never stopped respecting her or the other members of the Royal Family. He is convincing and I hope his version of events is true, that the Queen and Prince Phillip were supportive and helpful to Diana and that she always maintained a good relationship with them. William and Harry found upsetting and shocking the part where Diana writes to Paul, saying she is scared someone is plotting her death in a car accident. I can understand that. That aside however, I cannot see what the fuss is about, this is a fantastic book, showing the Royal Family in a positive light, the kindness and humanity of the Queen and hard to see how the Royal Family were against this book. If anything, after reading it, I have more respect for them and am certainly more intrigued by them.
