Synopsis

From the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Governess. The Princess, the final novel in Wendy Holden's trilogy about royal outsiders, fictionalises Princess Diana's little-known early years.



She became the world's most famous woman, but who was she really? What influences and experiences formed the phenomenon? From aristocratic childhood and boarding-school girlhood, from London flatshare to the steps of St Paul's, Holden follows with depth and empathy Diana's complicated journey to the heart of royalty.
