The Housekeeper's Diary: Charles and Diana Before the Breakup

Front Cover
Barricade Books, 1995 - Berry, Wendy - 186 pages
As housekeeper to Prince Charles and Princess Diana at their Highgrove mansion from 1985 until the royal couple's 1992 separation, Wendy Berry witnessed the slow disintegration of what was initially christened a fairy tale marriage. To her, it was clear from the very beginning that these two people, each possessing singularly admirable qualities and capable of great affection, found it impossible to live together harmoniously. Now, defying a centuries old obligation on royal servants not to discuss the affairs and behavior of the royal family, Wendy Berry has revealed this day by day detailed account of the mounting troubles inside Highgrove. She chronicles the growing emotional turmoil of a disintegrating relationship as witnessed by herself and other staff, and how both the Prince and Princess sought comfort outside their marriage while trying to maintain the fairy tale public image.
