Book - 1998
Rate this:
In only 37 days, the star-crossed romance between Diana, Princess of Wales and Dodi Fayed, son of Egyptian billionaire Mohammed Fayed, became one of the greatest -- and most tragic -- of the 20th century. Accounts of their storybook affair were everywhere, and the world mourned together when they were killed in a car accident in Paris on August 30, 1997, yet this memoir is the first to get to the heart of the matter the way nothing else has. Tenderly written by Dodi's personal assistant and confidante for eight years, this book has the authority of the man who witnessed more of their relationship than anyone (he was with them 24 of those 37 days). Rather than expounding on the incomprehensibility of their untimely death, the focus is on their journey of life -- from the languorous days on the Jonikal (Fayed's fabulous yacht), where they danced to music from The English Patient, to the quiet moment when they ate dinner together on a couch, with their plates on their laps. The controversy surrounding the accident is addressed, as is the grieving and moving on of the family and friends of Diana and Dodi. What is most powerful about this special book, however, is its depiction of the love that made them so happy, and that made us all so sad when we lost them.
