Princess Author:Ann Morrow Princess is a celebration; lively and informal, it traces the emergence from the chrysalis of a shy teenager from the shires who married a future king of England and became a dazzling Princess of Wales. Apart from her beauty and being a model mother, securing the monarchy with an heir and a 'spare', her gaiety and goodness have lightened the l... more »ives of everyone she meets. She has restored warmth and charm to the image of royalty and made our monarchy the envy or the world.
Ann Morrow, an experienced royal biographer, looks beyond the patina of style and glamour to explore the Princess's childhood, the effect of her parents' divorce and her mother's remarriage, her own marriage and motherhood and the relentless psychological pressure of becoming part of the Royal Family. Here we have an insight into her relationships with the other Royals, young and old, giving a complete picture of the girl who could become the Woman of the 90s, who will become Queen.
A true picture of the Princess emerges which is based on first-hand observation at home and abroad and countless conversations with members of the royal family, friends, courtiers, advisers and her designers. The Princess is one of the best dressed, most stunning and most photographed women in the world.
This book is fizzy and fun. It is informed, entertaining, anecdotal and often touching. This is not a solemn portrait because that would not suit the girl. Instead it is an affectionate, humorous look at this uniquely glamouous Princess who remains appealing and mesmeric.
Illustrated with superlative photographs, Princess is the ultimate biography.« less
