About this deal

Now he reveals startling new truths about Diana, Princess of Wales and presents for the first time as faithful an account of her thoughts as we can ever hope to read. But still, I wouldn't like a trusted member of my household staff (if I HAD a household staff) sharing even the most mundane conversations that occurred in private moments. I find it remarkable that his wife stuck it out with him, I wonder how many relationships could stand up to that dedication to work. She never should have allowed staff to become confidants, although many isolated wealthy people have found staff to be over loyal. She says something one day, he repeats it to the right people the next and two days later Paul walks free.

As a TV correspondent, Burrell has provided commentary for the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty the Queen and for the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Now, at last, Paul Burrell cuts through the gossip and the lies and takes us closer to the complex heart of the Royal Family than ever before.also i would take some of the things he say with a grain of salt since the novel is written by him and about ~his~ perspective of events.

It gives a good picture too, of the infrastructure below stairs, the kinds of things that go on in the staff quarters. Firstly, I really must thank RedFox5 for very generously sending me this book, as most likely I would have never picked it up to read. In this instance, her taking the butler into her confidence and allowing him to have access to personal papers etc, came back to bite him, when he was accused of stealing personal items that had belonged to Diana. But I believe that it is important that the truth is known NOW rather than waiting for the details to emerge in official papers when they are released in 25 years. It still escapes this hopeless clan that attacks on their runaway slave are likely to sting him into further disclosures.I am rather convinced that mr Burrell was indeed innocent and that the Spencer family was behind it. As for Burrell: his claims to be record-keeping should be resisted until he is more open about his sources. Thanks to the butler, it will probably be some time before we see much more of Mrs Parker Bowles, for whom things were going so swimmingly a few weeks ago that she appeared at a fashion gala and, rather cunningly, posed next to Donatella Versace. the book notches up a gear in the final third with the death of diana and with burrell being charged with stealing diana's personal property.
