LIFE Diana At 50

Author: The Editors of LIFE
Publisher: Life
ISBN: 1603202196
Release Date: 2011-06-28
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

She was, indeed, the People's Princess. She belonged to them, and was beloved by them. For some reason that cannot be pinned down, this pretty young woman of the aristocracy, who married into royalty, connected with the common folk in a way that was unique and extraordinary. The people cared for and cared about Diana, and when she was killed in a tragic car accident in Paris, the outpouring of grief — not just in England, but globally — was overwhelming. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Diana Spencer's birth, LIFE has assembled a celebratory chronicle of her too short but constantly vibrant time in the public eye. In family photos, we revisit Diana's youth and then, quickly enough, there is her courtship by Prince Charles. The Wedding of the Century really was that, an opulent extravaganza at St. Paul's that seemed a fairy tale, even unto the Glass Coach. LIFE was on the job at the time and in our pages appeared defining pictures from the day, as well as behind the scenes shots taken by the royals themselves. Those photographs resurface here, as do others from the magazine, which paid constant attention to Diana as she gracefully assumed the role of princess — perhaps the most famous princess of all time. LIFE followed her — and follows her here — as she set about doing her good works. Diana's family life with her handsome young boys in Kensington Palace is recounted, as are the travails when her marriage crumbles. On September 6, 1997, 2.5 billion people around the world watched Lady Di's funeral, televised from Westminster Abbey. LIFE revisits that sad day, and then parses Diana's legacy, catching up with her charismatic sons today — the older of whom, William, has just taken a bride. Kate Middleton now wears Diana's ring, and will one day be queen the very thing that was predicted for Diana, not so very long ago.

The Diana Chronicles

Author: Tina Brown
Publisher: Anchor
ISBN: 0385522886
Release Date: 2007-06-12
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she “the people’s princess,” who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy? Only Tina Brown, former Editor-in-Chief of Tatler, England’s glossiest gossip magazine; Vanity Fair; and The New Yorker could possibly give us the truth. Tina knew Diana personally and has far-reaching insight into the royals and the Queen herself. In The Diana Chronicles, you will meet a formidable female cast and understand as never before the society that shaped them: Diana's sexually charged mother, her scheming grandmother, the stepmother she hated but finally came to terms with, and bad-girl Fergie, her sister-in-law, who concealed wounds of her own. Most formidable of them all was her mother-in-law, the Queen, whose admiration Diana sought till the day she died. Add Camilla Parker-Bowles, the ultimate "other woman" into this combustible mix, and it's no wonder that Diana broke out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect.

Diana in Search of Herself

Author: Sally Bedell Smith
Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 9780307822031
Release Date: 2012-08-15
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Diana in Search of Herself is the first authoritative biography of one of the most fabled women of the century. Even those who knew Princess Diana will be surprised by author Sally Bedell Smith's insightful and haunting portrait of Diana's inner life. For all that has been written about Diana--the books, the commemorative magazines, the thousands of newspaper articles--we have lacked a sophisticated understanding of the woman, her motivations, and her extreme needs. Most books have been exercises in hagiography or character assassination, sometimes both in the same volume. Sally Bedell Smith, the acclaimed biographer, former New York Times reporter, and Vanity Fair contributing editor, has written the first truly balanced and nuanced portrait of the Princess of Wales, in all her emotional complexity. Drawing on scores of interviews with friends and associates who had not previously talked about Diana, Ms. Smith explores the events and relationships that shaped the Princess, the flashpoints that sent her careening through life, her deep feelings of unworthiness, her view of men, and her perpetual journey toward a better sense of self. By making connections not previously explored, this book allows readers to see Diana as she really was, from her birth to her tragic death. Original in its reporting and surprising in its conclusions about the severity of Diana's mental-health problems, Diana in Search of Herself is the smartest and most substantive biography ever written about this mesmerizing woman. NOTE: This edition does not include photographs.

Guarding Diana

Author: Ken Wharfe

Inspector Ken Wharfe, the first royalty protection officer to publish a memoir, was a crucial figure in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, for nearly seven years. He became a close friend and trusted confidant. His first-hand contradicts many of the so-called "facts" about Diana and provides affectionate, if not always uncritical, insight. He played an important role during Diana's most trying times, and in her sons' formative years, and he shows himself to be an exceptionally perceptive observer. This account presents the most intimate portrait of Diana to date, as well as a fitting tribute to one of the outstanding figures of our age.

Release Date: 2013-12-10
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Based on the groundbreaking ITV/The Learning Channel documentary series, and drawn from years of research and dozens of interviews with friends and associates speaking on the record for the first time, Diana contains never-before-revealed information and stunning insights about the beloved -- and largely misunderstood -- Princess of Wales. From claims that Diana was ready to leave Charles just weeks before the wedding to her lifelong battle against depression, from world-exclusive interviews with Diana's beau James Hewitt and her "surrogate mother-in-law" Shirley Hewitt to details about the unconventional "arrangements" in the royal household -- between Diana and James, Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles -- Diana is an honest, objective, and unparalleled biography. With thirty-two photographs -- including several never before published -- Diana shows all facets of this fascinating woman: her magic, her manipulations, her dazzling public persona, and her place in her people's hearts and history.

A Dress for Diana

Author: David Emanuel
Publisher: Harper Collins
ISBN: 9780062088031
Release Date: 2011-04-05
Genre: Photography

July 29,1981—The Royal Wedding of HRH Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer was one of the iconic moments of the twentieth century. It remains a day embedded in the memory of millions of people around the world—over 800 million people were watching at home on television. Of all the images from the day, the most unforgettable is Diana's arrival at St. Paul's Cathedral in a glass carriage and the public's first glimpse of the best kept secret of the day, the royal wedding dress: layers of silk, antique lace, pearls, sequins, and a 25-foot train, which had been hidden in a vault in London, concealed from the public eye. It was a true Cinderella dress, one the public is joyfully remembering today as they anxiously wait to see if the wedding grown of England's future princess, Kate Middletown who is already known for dressing like Diana at royal events, can surpass it. For the designers, David Emanuel and Elizabeth Emanuel who created Diana's dress, it was "a fairytale come true." Having only been introduced to her earlier that year, the Emanuels quickly became one of her favored designers, which lead to the career-changing request they received in March 1981. The glorious dress the Emanuels created was one bridal designers around the world would soon mimic, and it is carefully deconstructed in this artfully designed book created by the designers themselves and filled to the brim with background information on the dress and Diana's wishes for it, the original inspirational sketches of it, close-up images of its remarkable details, and photographs of Dina dressed in it on her wedding day as she became the royal princess of England.
