What interesting detail into the life of the Princess of Wales. I always like her, but Princess Diana comes alive in this book. Unfortunately, we all know the ending. Well worth the read even though some of the British humor/knowledge was lost to me. It was a GREAT insight to the Royal Family!
I thought this book would be more about Diana, the Princess of Wales. There is quite a bit of information about the author, Paul Burrell (about the last 100 pages). The pictures are interesting though.
If you have ANY interest in the royal family read this book...it was very juicy! He wrote candidly about the "human" side of Princess Diana. You will be intrigued by just how tough she made her own life.
He was the Queen's favorite footman and the Princess of Wales's trusted butler. Now Paul Burrell reveals intimate details and shocking revelations of a life spent among the Royal Family. He is the one man who can separate myth from the truth of the Diana years--and fulfill his duty to one of the most remarkable women of the House of Windsor.
I don't care for Mr. Burrell and I am ashamed of myself for buying this book and adding to his royalties. Having said that I will share it with as many of you so we will not add any more money to this shameless endeavor. I know, I know it really is a good read and I do believe he was a true confidant of the Princess we all loved so well. I just wish the book was not so self-serving and he was a better friend that did not share all these intimate details. Alright so I'm a hypocrite and I devored the entire book and wanted to know more; it just makes me wish she were better treated by alot of people.
