The death of Diana, Princess of Wales, is a defining benchmark in history. A year after the fatal car crash, millions around the world still remain in shock. During the sixteen years since her wedding to Prince Charles, she had evolved from Shy Di to the most famous person in the world. For all her fame, much of the human drama that swirled around her death remains veiled in intrigue. Christopher Andersen draws upon important sources -- many of whom have agreed to speak here for the first time -- to re-create the events leading up to that fateful night.
