“Intensely well researched and un un-put-downable read, Tina Brown’s extraordinary book parts the brocaded velvet and allows us an unprecedented look at the world and mind of the most famous person on the planet. A social commentary, a historical document, and a psychological examination, written by a superb investigative journalist.” - Actress Helen Mirren 

Ten years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she “the people’s princess,” who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy?


Only Tina Brown, former Editor-in-Chief of Tatler, England’s glossiest gossip magazine, Vanity Fair, and The New Yorker, could possibly tell us the truth. Tina knew Diana personally and has far-reaching insight into the royals and the Queen herself.

In The Diana Chronicles, you will meet a formidable female cast and understand as never before the society that shaped them:   Diana's sexually charged mother, her scheming grandmother, the stepmother she hated but finally came to terms with, and bad girl Fergie, her sister-in-law, who concealed wounds of her own.  Most formidable of them all was her mother-in-law, the Queen, whose admiration Diana sought till the day she died. Add Camilla Parker-Bowles, the ultimate "other woman," into this combustible mix, and it's no wonder that Diana broke out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her power and used it to devastating effect.
