In his 25th anniversary edition of Diana:Her Story – In Her Own Words, first published to huge public controversy and accusations of fabrication, Andrew Morton is able to shed light on Diana’s personal, private experiences as a troubled member of the Royal family. The books includes transcripts of detailed tape interviews in which she describes all aspects of her life, including her ten-year struggle with bulimia and her husband Charles’ affair with Camilla Parker-Bowles.
Morton describes the interviews, conducted secretly and through a proxy, as Diana’s way of getting her voice – and her side of the story of their failing marriage – heard, at once searingly sad and monumentally brave. “It is a chance for my own self to surface a little rather than be lost in the system,” she wrote to her father during the interview process. “I rather see it as a lifebelt against being drowned and it is terribly important to me.”
