Diana – The People’s Princess – Our Review And Giveaway



The book is not so much of an biography as a photograph album. As well as over 250 photographs, from her childhood days to the Royal Wedding, there are accounts of most of her major life events.

Amongst the book’s pages you will find some instantly recognisable photographs. Such as when Charles and Diana got engaged. But there are also photographs from less happy times. Such as the instantly recognisable shot of a solitary Princess Diana sitting in front of the Taj Mahal.

A Life In Pictures

‘Diana – The People’s Princess’ is split into 7 chapters. 

The first chapter describes her early life, with the sad divorce of her parents and her school life. It ends with her first meetings with Prince Charles, and how they sought to try and keep their relationship a secret from the press. In a serious and perhaps sad parallel to current royal events, Lady Diana mother actually wrote to The Times newspaper asking them to stop hounding her daughter once the affair became known.

The second chapter discusses her early days with Charles, their engagement and wedding. Here are photographs of happy days. But the chapter also discusses how things went wrong. And ends with their divorce.

The third chapter is devoted to Diana’s love of her boys. The fourth to her charity work. And the fifth chapter is all about her celebrity friendships.

Ultimately, the sixth chapter focuses on that day in August 1997. When the whole world was shaken by the news that Diana had died. In that fateful Paris tunnel after a frantic paparazzi chase. Her death, and the immense outpouring of public mourning was unprecedented then, and has never been matched since.

And finally, the last chapter discusses the legacy of the Princess. Undoubtedly, even though 20 years has passed since her death she still commands such bright memories. And without a doubt she lives on in her sons.

The Author

Nicholas Owen was ITN’s Royal Correspondent from 1994 to 2000. Consequently, he played a major role in the reporting of her death and aftermath. He also served as one of the news anchors of her funeral.

    I was very young when Diana married Charles but I remember being home from school and watching it on tv. I remember her having William and Harry, divorcing Charles and, seemingly becoming free & happy. I remember where I was when I heard she had died; I had driven through that tunnel at 100 miles an hour just a few months before the accident, but I came out the other side alive.

    When I visited her childhood home Althorp House in Northamptonshire and saw the exhibition about her life, including her famous wedding dress and other fashion items. Seeing the temple of Diana there was another highlight. I never saw her in real life, but from the moment her engagement was announced when I was at university (a moment I remember vividly) I followed her with massive interest.

    How Princess Diana blossomed from ‘shy Di’ to become the world’s most photographed and beautiful woman.
