Diana, Princess of Wales was an icon during her life and now in her afterlife as well. Ken Wharfe was her Personal Protection Officer from 1988 until 1993 and he continued to work for the Royal family until 2002.
Guarding Diana follows Diana on her many trips abroad, including her private holidays. Ken Wharfe tells how he dealt with the security issues but also how he dealt with Diana who was known to court the press as well. I enjoyed the insights into Diana’s life and the challenges she faced on a daily basis, even when she wasn’t “on duty.”
It is quite well-written and I enjoyed Ken’s flowing writing style. However, if you’re looking for an in-depth look at Diana, this isn’t it. But don’t let that put you off, it is a fun read.
