Lady Colin Campbell's New York Times bestselling biography Diana in Private was the first to expose the truth about Diana and her troubled marriage. In The Real Diana, she reveals that her inside source for this intimate information was Diana herself. Drawing upon these confidences, as well as on conversations with countless others, Lady Colin Campbell combines true insight with true compassion to set the record straight on many of the most controversial aspects of Diana's turbulent life: how Charles and Diana's engagement came to pass, though it seemed ill-advised to those closest to both of them; what their honeymoon was really like; the truth behind Diana's bulimia, her widely reported suicide attempts, and her obsession with Camilla Parker Bowles; Diana's search for love and fulfillment with numerous men before, during, and after her marriage; her brilliant manipulations of the press; and her relationship with Dodi Fayed.

Professional reviews

"After finding herself characterized in the media as a victim of the Royal Family's indifference and Prince Charles's infidelity, Princess Diana petitioned Lady Colin Campbell to write the truth about her life. However, once Campbell's research began, the truth was not always favorable to Diana's image. Roe Kendall, the epitome of British elegance, is on the mark, with proper enunciation, delightful character interpretations, and an uncanny vocal similarity to Diana. Kendall manages to convert detailed and sensitive information into fascinating family history, revealing Diana's deepest secrets. At times, these border on vicious gossip. Kendall maintains her professionalism thoughout, and during steamy descriptions remains reserved, yet nonjudgmental. Kendall's aloof yet direct style presents listeners with a very different Diana!
