Illustrated with colour photographs. From the cover: “The publication of Andrew Morton’s Diana, Her True Story in 1992 shook the royal family to its very foundations. The books many revelations — that Prince Charles had been having a long-term affair, that the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales had been a sham, that the Princess had been suffering from an eating disorder and had made several halt-hearted suicide attempts — were initially greeted with disbelief. But as time passed it became clear that the book was, as its title claimed, Diana’s f rue story, especially when the couple announced their separation in December 1992. When Prince Charles eventually admitted his adultery on television, he put the final seal of confirmation on Andrew Morton’s claims.

Diana’s friends were hopeful that the separation from Charles, which ended years of living a lie, would bring Diana the freedom to find happiness in a new role. But has she? With her marriage in limbo and her children only occasionally by her side, Diana’s position in the royal family is one of increasing isolation.

Diana, Her New Life chronicles the secret battles that have raged behind closed doors, and Diana’s constant frustration as she endeavours to break free from the restrictions of her semi-detached royal life.

With the help of some of Diana’s closest friends and advisors, Andrew Morton is once again able to strip away the royal propaganda and reveal how Diana, who became a princess before she had reached maturity, is at last learning to become a woman in her own right rather than a puppet of the palace. Andrew Morton exposes the in-fighting and intrigue behind the separation, and Diana’s private thoughts on her retirement from public life, on remarriage, the men in her life and the grooming of Prince William for his future role.

Illustrated with 32 pages of remarkable colour photographs, Diana, Her New Life will give a fresh focus on the human story behind the most sensational royal crisis since the Abdication.”
