During the last five years of her life, Princess Diana had one friend and confidante who was special to her. She was not part of Dianas social circle, nor was she a family friend. That woman was Simone Simmons, a healer, who devoted herself to the troubled Princess. Simone and Diana shared a unique bond. Diana opened her heart and mind to Simone, who always told the Princess the unvarnished truth. With Simone, Diana felt confident enough to express her true self. In 1997, Diana told her friend she wanted her to write a book which revealed the truth about her, to tell it like it is. This is that book. In these pages, Simone describes how it really was, including: Who among the royals was good to Diana and who treated her poorly Her fling at the Carlisle Hotel with one of the most desirable American celebrities Why she cut herself How Mother Teresa hurt her And her enduring love for Prince Charles. With her extraordinary insight into Dianas life, Simone captures the soul of the Princess and creates an intimate and rich portrait of one of the great icons of the twentieth century.
