“When I met Diana at a mutual friend's house in 1990, I was astonished by her conduct … she was the antithesis of circumspect. Throwing caution and reserve to the wind, she said that she wanted me to write the truth about her life ‘because I feel as if the whole fairy tale is crushing whatever's left of the real me … If you’d just write about the real Diana, it would make all the difference.”—Lady Colin Campbell 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 El Fayed.
