Publisher's Summary

This exclusive edition features an introduction narrated by the author, and an interview between Andrew Morton and celebrated royal correspondent Jennie Bond.

A reissue of this classic title, updated with never-before-published material from the original taped interviews and with a new introduction by Andrew Morton that reflects on the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the original publication of Diana: Her True Story.

One of the world's best-known biographers, Andrew Morton's groundbreaking and controversial biography Diana: Her True Story changed the public's perception of the British monarchy and became an instant global best seller. When it was first published, the original book was met with abuse and criticism from the disbelieving British establishment and mass media. At the time Diana's collaboration with Morton was a closely guarded secret. It was only in 1997, months after her tragic death, that Morton revealed how the princess was the hidden hand behind the most controversial royal book of all time.

In raw and revealing tape recordings, Diana exposed the sham of her marriage to future king Prince Charles, her eating disorders, her suicide attempts as well as her hope and faith in a happier future. This was royalty unplugged and uncensored, the princess talking candidly about her whole life, from her unhappy childhood to her time inside the royal family.

Sadly a life of such promise was cut short in an underpass in Paris. As a result Diana: Her True Story - in Her Own Words remains her one true testament, the nearest we will ever come to her autobiography. This new and revised edition reflects on the extraordinary circumstances surrounding the original publication as well as Diana's long-term legacy, particularly the lives of her two sons, Princes William and Harry.

    "UPDATED VERSION - SUCH A FANTASTIC READ"

    Really wonderful listen. Must admit as a true fan of Diana, I did shed many tears.

    It brought everything up to date with the references to William's marriage and children. Harry's charity work and help the hero's and Invictus games.

    A wonderful, wonderful listen!!!

    "absolutely brilliant"

    had the paper back version of this book for years but never read it. Am so glad I waited, this 20th anniversary edition in many ways takes you full circle; both heart breaking and inspiring. I loved every moment of it....Rip Diana x

    "dreary"

    got to be one of the most depressing diatribes ever. I have not lost my faith in Diana. Princess of Wales. This can only be a script for the return of spitting image. I sent it back. Narrator belongs in a Waitose lift.
