On 31 August 1997, the world was stunned by the tragic death of the most popular and photographed woman of the modern age: Diana, Princess of Wales. The outpouring of public grief at this tragically early death was unprecedented in modern times. Now, 20 years on, Diana: the People's Princess celebrates both her life and her legacy. A dignified and unexploitative celebration of Diana's life, Diana: the People's Princess commemorates this remarkable woman's life from her childhood to her tragic premature death at the age of 36. With authoritative text and a vast array of photographs, this updated edition includes new material on the aftermath of her death, including her legacy as a mother - Princes William and Harry and their involvement in perpetuating and protecting her memory - and the continuing work of the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. Diana: the People's Princess is a respectful, sensitive and poignant tribute to this elegant, charming and sympathetic symbol of our times. Foreword by Sir Trevor McDonald.
