The Queen & Di was a very interesting story of the relationship between Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana

The Queen & Di was a very interesting story of the relationship between Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana. The reader is given insight into the often tumululous encounters between these two women. It tells of the ways The Queen tried to help the Princess adjust to life as a royal and how the Princess was determined to do things her way, which often conflicted with the monarchy. There are so many books on the subject of Diana but I trust Ingrid Seward and bought THE QUEEN AND DI. I found it to be very informative and there were things I was not aware of that supposedly happened. Easy reading and I felt fair to both the Queen and to Diana.

The Queen & Di was a very interesting story of the relationship between Queen Elizabeth II and Princess Diana. The reader is given insight into the often tumululous encounters between these two women. It tells of the ways The Queen tried to help the Princess adjust to life as a royal and how the Princess was determined to do things her way, which often conflicted with the monarchy. The relationship between Princess Diana and Prince Charles was examined and the truth was told which, at times, contradicted the public portrayal of their marriage. The Princess's behavior was discribed as very immature and paranoid about her husband's relationship with Camilla Parker Bowles. This book also chronicled the changes that Queen Elizabeth II was forced to address, i.e. the divorces of 2 of her children, and her daughter. It depicts how the Queen was trying to keep the monarchy as it had always been while having to deal with the changes in society. This book told of the differences between the public's personage of Princess Diana and the real Diana.

Not much here that I hadn't already read but confirmation was a plus. Ingrid Seward, who knew the late Princess of Wales, offers a well-balanced account of a relationship between a rather unbalanced young wife and her formidable but non-confrontational mother-in-law who landed in a damned-if she-did/damned-if-she-didn't nightmare. Except for a few typos and grammatical bloopers (Ms. Seward lacks a grasp of the proper use of comparatives), this is a bend-over-backwards effort at a fair account of a marriage doomed to fail. Marriage into the BRF, especially to a major member, is life in a fishbowl of restrictions, obligations, and constant scrutiny, not a fairy tale, and although the late Diana had a natural gift of empathy with her subjects-to-be, she ultimately carried too much baggage to partner successfully in any marriage and certainly not one with the pressures attendant on the one into which she entered.

Reviewers who complain about too much background information miss the point. Background is EVERYTHING to both monarchies and aristocracies and a grasp of it is essential to understanding their workings, including interpersonal relationships. It's highly unlikely anyone outside her own circle would have heard of Diana had she not married into the BRF, so familiarity with both backgrounds is essential for those who are interested in a character study rather than a hagiography (Ms. Seward is right to bring our attention to the fact that the ancient British aristocracy considers itself in some ways superior to what they perceive as the Germanic johnnys-come-lately they serve).

Anyone who takes the time to view this account objectively will likely come to the conclusion that a confluence of factors, i.e. Diana's inability to conform, the Queen's reluctance to reign her in, a general public deterioration of established values, and unfortunate timing converged in the mania that resulted after the accident that took Diana's and Dodi Fayed's lives. The reaction to the death of a woman who (sorry, guys) was the first in her marriage to stray and who was responsible for fracturing two other marriages is Cult of Personality at its most mindlessly frightening and Ms. Seward is to be commended for setting the record straight.

Let the flaming begin.

There are so many books on the subject of Diana but I trust Ingrid Seward and bought THE QUEEN AND DI. I found it to be very informative and there were things I was not aware of that supposedly happened.Easy reading and I felt fair to both the Queen and to Diana. Recommended for an unbiased book.

Still reading it now but basically it has all of the information we all know about Diana, Queen Elizabeth, Camilla, Charles, Kate, William, and Harry but instead of reading 6 books, The Queen and Di chronicles every book into one. I enjoy reading anything related to the Royals. This book is well-written and interesting. Yes, there are a few stories I had not heard about. Luckily William and Kate will most likely rule and Charles and Camilla can live as they are.

Enjoyed this book very much. Felt I could get a better understanding of the lives these people live. under the scrutiny they are constantly forced to live with. I especially liked to read about the compassion the Queen showed during all this drama..

Ingrid has been the great teller of all royal news for years. She is however very cautious with her stories. No slinging dirt here.

Amazing reading! This book shed light on a family whose background the average person knows nothing about. A world apart from the everyday citizen!
Very riveting and well documented, couldn't put it down.
