Diana's Boys: William and Harry and the Mother They Loved

Front Cover

Five years after Diana's death, Prince William and his brother Prince Harry -- "the heir and the spare," as Fleet Street dubbed them -- are the planet's two most photographed, written-about, and speculated-about young men. People everywhere feel an intense affection for Wills and Harry, and wonder if, without their mother to guide them, they are withering or flourishing in the House of Windsor.

In this much anticipated sequel to his New York Times #1 bestseller The Day Diana Died, Christopher Andersen draws on important sources -- many of whom have agreed to speak here for the first time -- to paint this sympathetic, yet often startling portrait of William and Harry, and reveal how their mother remains a constant presence in their lives.

Here is a story of a mother who died too young, and the beloved sons who are her living legacy.
