It is now 20 years since this iconic royal figure died at the tragically young age of 36 in a Paris car crash. Her powerful legacy lives on through her sons, Princes William and Harry, and a new generation is becoming aware of her extraordinary life for the first time.
Released on what would have been Princess Diana’s 56th birthday, this collection of quotes celebrates the life she led, her achievements as a campaigner, philanthropist, and mother as well as the hardships she endured. The book takes us from Diana’s troubled childhood, through her rushed and ultimately unhappy marriage to Prince Charles and the uneasy relationship with the Royal Family, to her last years of failed flings and untimely death.
But it also highlights the depths of her care and compassion, her unshakable love of family, her groundbreaking campaigns on AIDS and land mines and her cheeky, sometimes risqué, sense of humor. Beautiful and vulnerable, and one of the most popular and most photographed public figures, she lived the whole of her adult life in the glare of an intense media spotlight yet managed to retain her dignity and identity.
In this first ever comprehensive collection of Diana’s most memorable quotes, veteran royal reporter Phil Dampier reveals the heart and soul of an incredible woman who is missed by millions around the world.
Phil Dampier has chosen a selection of her most memorable quotes that reveal the personality of the woman behind the tiara; the woman who said “don’t call me an icon”, but remains one of Britain’s most iconic figures 20 years on.
