That the beautiful, complicated Princess of Wales — arguably the most celebrated woman of the twentieth century — died so violently and so young was tragic. That she was a single mother leaving behind two emotionally vulnerable sons made Diana's death at thirty-six all the more heartbreaking.Four years after Diana's death, Prince William and his brother Prince Harry — "the...more

I have grown inordinately fond of Christopher Andersen's prose lately. Yes, there are times when he falls into overusing the same phrase on multiple occasions (and it's usually something elegant that you just know he's very proud of, like "those legendary playing fields of Eton," or something like that), or when he refers to the same person in three or more different ways on the same page (as in "Diana," "Mummy," and "the Princess of Wales"; or "Elizabeth," "Granny," "Her Majesty," and "the Quee...more

I was also very pleased that even with the advantage of hindsight, I was to still able to learn new details about my favorite family.
A good book on the lives of princess Diana's sons; stops before William gets to college so it doesn't delve into the Will-Kate romance....more
