Diana's love/hate relationship with the camera is evident from countless photos snatched by ruthless paparazzi. But Diana: Princess of Wales presents an adoring portrait of this widely admired and gentle woman. The book's 200-plus beautiful photographs chronicle Diana's life from early childhood through her somber funeral. The images range from a giggly schoolgirl to a still-playful mother to the perfect English rose celebrated in song.
Michael O'Mara, one of Britain's leading editors of books about the princess, chose his own favorite pictures for publication in this book, including those taken by Diana's father and by Patrick Demarchelier in the 1990s. Many of these photos were also Diana's favorites, taken with full permission. A donation from the sale of each copy will go to the Diana Princess of Wales Memorial Fund. --Gina Kaysen
