About this Book

Ten years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she “the people’s princess,” who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy? Only Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of Tatler, England’s glossiest gossip magazine; Vanity Fair; and The New Yorker could possibly give us the truth.

Review Quotes

PRAISE FOR THE DIANA CHRONICLES

“Amazingly detailed . . . Brown's jam-packed, juicy roll in the high cotton is...a walloping good read.”
Washington Post

“[An] insanely readable and improbably profound new biography.”
Chicago Tribune

"Intensely well researched and an unputdownable read."
—Academy Award-winning actress Helen Mirren

"It's Dianamite!"
—Tom Wolfe

"Tina Brown knows this world much better than many who inhabit it.... This book resembles the Queen in its calm, credible, quietly chattering view of life inside the royal hothouse."
The New York Times

"[Tina Brown] tells the story fluently, with engrossing detail on every page, and with the mastery of tone that made her Tatler famous for being popular with the people it was laughing at."
The New Yorker

"The Diana Chronicles, by Tina Brown, former editor of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker, peels many layers of...mystery away and even makes the old horror stories of [Diana's] life seem fresh...Brown gives them new vigor, with insights based on her own exhaustive research and a wickedly canny, celebrity-trained eye for detail."
Boston Globe

"The book's greatest attraction...is its sheer wealth of detail, by turns salacious, vinegary, depressing, and hilarious...a psychodrama, a morality play, a pageant of recklessness and revenge, of passion and pity, of loneliness and looniness."
The Wall Street Journal

"The Diana Chronicles...has enough of Diana's hairpin personality turns, emotional drops, and gleeful summits to be a Disneyland thrill ride...Brown reminds us of her instantly intimate, magical presence."
Los Angeles Times
