By Chris Hutchins and Peter Thompson
Even before Lady Diana Spencer married into the most revered family on earth, she had her suspicions that the kith and kin of Prince Charles were not all they seemed-to-be. No sooner had she become the Princess of Wales and moved into Kensington Palace than her fears were confirmed: the House of Windsor constituted a flawed dynasty. Diana’s Nightmare reveals the previously untold secrets Diana discovered about her royal relatives. This book exposes how intensely Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles contrived to exclude her, it reveals the Queen was angry and bitter at her family’s indiscretions, how the Queen Mother’s indifference was matched only by Prince Philip’s blind range over Diana’s determination to find her own path, what really went on between the Duke and Duchess of York and how Prince Edward witnessed Diana’s tantrums at Balmoral. As Dominick Dunne wrote: ' 'Just when I thought I couldn't read another word about the tribulations of HRH Princess Diana, along came Chris Hutchins and Peter Thompson's fascinatng book with new insights into the troubled life of the beautiful and unhappy princess. I remained riveted to the end'.
