She was the fairytale princess and perhaps the most beloved woman not only in England…but in the world. Princess Diana was the People’s Princess and the world was her stage. On July 29, 1981, Lady Diana Spencer and Prince Charles took their vows as three quarters of a billion people around the world who believed in fairytales watched. Diana was just 20 years old. The prince was 32. And within four years, the royal couple produced an heir and a spare to the British throne. But as early as the honeymoon, there were reports of trouble in paradise. Charles could not compete with Diana’s glamour and innate ability to connect with the commoner. He soon resumed his affair with his lover, Camilla Parker Bowles, from his bachelor days and Diana took lovers of her own. The War of the Waleses had begun and it grew ugly. By 1996, the Queen ordered a divorce pronto! But, though she was no longer royalty, Diana remained “The Queen of People’s Hearts”…until the unimaginable. On August 31, 1997, the world froze as news broke that Princess Diana was killed in a horrific car crash that took her life along with the life of her lover, Dodi Fayed, the heir to Harrods and son of a billionaire, as they tried to elude the paparazzi. Hollywood’s #1 Entertainment Journalist Nancy O’Dell shares her memories of what it was like to be thrown on a plane within 24 hours of the accident to cover what she calls to this day, the “biggest story” of her career. She recounts the crowds that descended upon London, the outcry when the Monarchy didn’t rush back from their summer holiday for five days, and the image of Diana’s two young sons walking behind their mother’s casket as crowds threw flowers at the funeral procession calling it, “one of the toughest jobs ever that I’ve had to do.” Show Less
