A TRIBUTE TO THE PEOPLE’S PRINCESS BOOK

PETER DONNELLY

To all outward appearances, the Honourable
Diana Frances Spencer -daughter of the
eighth Earl Spencer, childhood playmate of
royal children -was born with the proverbial
silver spoon in her mouth. Yet the reality was
very different, for Diana’s childhood was an
unhappy one. And when, like a fairy tale, she
was transformed (in her own words) from
‘a nobody’ to become one of the most public
figures in the land, before long appearances
again proved to be deceptive: her marriage
to the Prince ofWales was to end in
recrimination and unhappiness.
Yet Diana was to recover from adversity to
capture the hearts of people allover the
world. And that triumph owed nothing
to wealth or power or title, and everything to
qualities that lay within -qualities for which
she was universally adored: an innate ability
to understand, and empathise with, ordinary
people, but especially with the desperately
sick, the rejected, the ‘unloved’.
With six chapters and over 215 colour and
black-and-white photographs -many
previously unpublished in book form -and
with a lively text by leading author Peter
Donnelly, this book tells the remarkable
story of Diana’s flowering into ‘The People’s
Princess’ and in doing so pays homage to
that ‘innate nobility’ that we all came to love
and respect.
