Didn't like it. Very cumbersome to read. Didn't really talk about princess Diana at all. If I had a dollar for everytime the author mentioned that the queen didn't pay taxes, I would be as rich as the Queen.

Not Anthony Holden's best book by any means. It's out of date, being published several years before Diana's death. The information about Prince Charles' activities in architecture, gardening and civic causes is also outdated, and some of the information has since been proven to be slightly incomplete.
