I found DIANA: STORY OF A PRINCESS to be a much more level-headed account of the Princess of Wales' life in the House of Windsor than any other I've encountererd. While I've admired Diana since my girlhood, and grew to find her good works more valuable than her good looks over time, I have suspected that the Queen of Hearts may have been more tempermental and less saintly than generally believed. This account of her life provides a human side to the Princess' often over glorified person.
