About the Book
One of the world's best-known biographers, Andrew Morton is a leading authority on modern celebrity, and one of the finest investigative writers of our age. His ground-breaking and controversial biography, Diana: Her True Story changed the public's perception of the British monarchy and became an instant bestseller. The original book was met with torrents of abuse from the British Establishment and the media. No one at that time would believe that in fact Diana had secretly collaborated with Andrew Morton in the writing of the book, until 1997 when its re-publication in the wake of her death showed beyond any doubt that she had in fact done so. Working with Morton on the book, Diana exposed life inside the royal family and shook the Establishment to its foundations. Sadly, however, the new life Diana had hoped for was tragically cut short. Diana: Her True Story – In Her Own Words allowed her to give her own account of life as a royal. The Princess's memory lives on, as does the public and press interest in her. This world bestseller bears testimony to Diana's life, finally allowing her to have her say. It is the closest we will ever come to her autobiography.
