Remembering Diana: A Life in Photographs Book Review

Twenty years after her death, this dazzling photography collection with a foreword by bestselling author Tina Brown celebrates Princess Diana’s poignant life in more than 100 iconic images.

For the millions who adored the People’s Princess, this lavish book presents Diana Spencer’s life in glorious color. Page after page of inside photos document the royal’s most memorable moments in the spotlight; a luminous, personal remembrance by friend and biographer Tina Brown adds context and nuance to a poignant life twenty years after her tragic death. Float down memory lane through more than 100 remarkable images of Diana, from her days as a schoolgirl to her engagement to Prince Charles, the birth of Princes William and Harry, and her life in the media as an outspoken advocate for the poor, the sick, and the downtrodden. This elegant book features reflections from those who knew her best, recollections from journalists, dignitaries and celebrities like Bill Clinton, Mother Teresa, and Elton John, and personal insight through the princess’s own words. The tie-in companion to Diana: The Lost Tapes, airing on the National Geographic Channel, this richly illustrated book is a beautiful ode to one of the world’s most beloved women.

It will be impossible to escape the mention of Diana, Princess of Wales on this day, so we may as well embrace the influx of books, documentaries and memories on the 20th anniversary of her death. Remembering Diana: A Life in Photographs is one such book and is a beautiful hardcover book with plenty of images of Diana. The photos are accompanied by an introduction by Tina Brown who is also the author of The Diana Chronicles (2007). 

Although the book is lovely and has many photos that I had not seen, I found myself quite annoyed with the end where the Duchess of Cambridge is included. It seems she will never be able to escape comparison to her famous mother-in-law, despite never having met her and her inclusion seems silly and not necessary.

Remembering Diana: A Life in Photographs is available now in both the UK and the US.
