Mary's unique memories include Diana's nonchalant reaction to Mary's discovery of her aristocratic background, and her calm attitude to her subsequent engagement to Prince Charles. She tells of a young woman whose life dramatically changed when her royal courtship began, and who often turned to Mary for advice and guidance. The Diana who emerges in this book develops from innocent teenager to pained, tormented woman constantly in the public eye, but throughout, she appears as a committed and sincere woman who 'loathed formality' and someone who felt at home with 'ordinary people'. After Mary returned to America, the two women remained regularly in touch, and the author was invited to both the 'fairytale wedding' in 1980 and Diana's funeral in 1997. The Diana I Knew is a friend's loving tribute to Diana, Princess of Wales.
