Princess is the story of the girl who sprang from obscurity to become the most talked-about and the most photographed woman in the world. This first ever biography of Diana, Princess of Wales, is a unique insight into the style and character of its royal subject. Published in the year of the late Princess of Wales' twenty-first birthday, Princess is a sumptuous and elegant celebration, capturing all the freshness, spontaneity and charm of the young woman who was destined to be Queen of England - but whose life turned out very differently.

For this book, Robert Lacey teamed up with Michael Rand, the award-winning art director of The Sunday Times Magazine. The result is a full-colour portfolio of pictures by some of the world's greatest photographers, tracing the life of the Princess from her childhood to her shimmering appearance at the State Opening of Parliament.
