The Intimate Portrait
By (author) Judy Wade
Diana by Judy Wade
Book DescriptionWhen Princess Diana died in August 1997, the nation mourned for a woman they felt they had come to know intimately. They had witnessed the quiet, blushing Lady Diana Spencer transform into an elegant, stylish ambassador, tirelessly campaigning for the causes in which she believed. It was through Diana that the public came to see a warmer side to the monarchy. But who was the real Princess Diana?Away from the public gaze and the media glare was a woman who preferred high street styles to high fashion and who wandered barefoot around her Kensington Palace home. In this revealing book, royal expert Judy Wade speaks to some of Diana's closest friends and confidantes. They describe how she cleaned her own bath, worried about her weight and nagged her sons just like any other mum. They tell of her secret plan to marry a man who shared her desire to help the sick, her violent row with Dodi Fayed just before they died, and the real reason behind her last mission to Australia.This informative book also looks at Diana's manipulation of the media, the impact of her death on the monarchy, plus the police investigation and subsequent inquests into the crash that killed her. This is a fascinating look at a woman who was so many things to so many different people.
