After Diana: William, Harry, Charles, and the Royal House of Windsor (Large Print)
Review Date: 2/15/2010


Ten years after Princess Diana's shocking death, her shadow still hovers over the Royal Family. Now, Christopher Andersen, the #1 bestselling author of The Day Diana Died, has drawn from important sources- many talking for the first time- to reveal answers to the questions on everyone's minds:
Why was Scotland Yard shocked by recent dicoveries about Diana's death?
Which prince appears headed for a breakdown?
Who does the Queen want to succeed her throne?

All the compelling elements of a riveting saga are here: power, sex, wealth, betrayal and tragedy. But so is the princess's stunning legacy of love and compassion, alive in the sons who have grown to manhood. From Charles's marriage to Camilla and the boys'
scandalous behavior to the Queen's response to rumors about Harry's parentage, Andersen brings you behind the headlines to the real story.
