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.


What the Critics Say

"A fascinating book full of new insights into the life and times of Diana.... Deeply personal, candid and sometimes shocking." (The Sunday Times)
"A devastatingly and intensely personal account." (The Independent)
"The definitive account of royalty in the late twentieth century." (The Sun)

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!!!
