A beautiful, much-loved icon. A lonely, troubled soul. The true complexity of Diana, Princess of Wales, was first brought to light in 1992 with the release of Andrew Morton's Diana: Her True Story. As was only revealed after her death, his explosive biography had been written with her full and intimate collaboration.
Now, to coincide with Diana, the film released this month, Morton's world-famous biography has been fully revised and updated to include the information that has come to light in the events that have occurred since her death.
In this study of Diana's last five years, her chosen biographer sets down a truly extraordinary tale of bad faith, betrayal and cynical manipulation that might be farfetched in a novel. Forged documents, the shadowy presence of the security services, theft, deception and a cast of servants, employees, advisers and lovers – all figure largely in this revealing portrait of the Princess's adult life. This honest, unbiased account provides the last word on one of the best loved figures of our era.
Andrew Morton is an English journalist and writer and has published biographies on celebrity subjects including Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie and Monica Lewinsky. He is also considered to be a larding authority on royal biographies and has also written a biography on Prince William.
