Auch Jahre nach ihrem Tod wird sie verehrt, ja vergöttert: Lady Di lebt. Wirklich gerecht wird ihr nur die definitive Biographie der international renommierten Journalistin Tina Brown. Ihr großartiges Porträt gewährt uns mitreißende neue Einblicke in das große Drama eines Frauenlebens. Die britisch-amerikanische Star-Journalistin Tina Brown hat zeitlebens Dianas Werdegang verfolgt, Hunderte von Gesprächen geführt und unvoreingenommen nachgefragt. Mit scharfem Blick entlarvt sie bisher verborgene Wahrheiten und bringt uns Diana nahe wie niemand zuvor: ihre Zerrissenheit zwischen den eigenen Gefühlen und den Pflichten der Ehefrau eines zukünftigen Monarchen; ihre Verzweiflung in dem nur scheinbar goldenen Käfig ihrer Ehe; ihre Sehnsüchte und Hoffnungen; ihre Reaktion auf das überwältigende Interesse der Medien und auf die Verführungskraft des Glamour. Wir verstehen, wie Diana weltweit die Menschen für sich einnehmen konnte und warum sie, verstoßen aus der Welt der Royals, Zuflucht beim Jetset suchte – was letztlich ihren tragischen Tod bedeutete. Und wir begreifen, wie sie noch heute als Königin der Herzen eine Wirkung entfaltet, der wir uns nicht entziehen können.

Die Windsors sind kein Königshaus wie jedes andere. Sie gehören nicht allein zum Revier der Regenbogenpresse, sondern haben viel mehr zu bieten: eine ältere Geschichte, eine stärkere Symbolkraft für die Gesellschaft und größere Skandale.

20th Anniversary Edition Tina Brown's definitive behind-the-scenes insight into the life of Diana Princess of Wales now features a brand new introduction by Andrew Marr. Twenty years after her death, Princess Diana remains a mystery. Was she "the people's princess," who electrified the world with her beauty and humanitarian missions? Or was she a manipulative, media-savvy neurotic who nearly brought down the monarchy? The Diana Chronicles parts the curtains on Diana's troubled time in the mysterious world of the Windsors, as she breaks out of her royal cage into celebrity culture, where she found her own power and used it to devastating effect. Tina Brown knew Diana personally and deeply understands her world. She knows the game and its players, and her far-reaching insight extends past Diana to the royals and the Queen herself. You've never seen the royal family and its cast of powerful women quite like this.

A far-sighted war hero or an ambitious networker promoted above his talents? Deservedly celebrated as a naval officer and confidant of world leaders, nevertheless, for some, Mountbatten’s talents remain questionable. In this timely new biography, Adrian Smith paints a different and convincing picture, of an essentially modern figure of a technocratic age, a nuts and bolts officer specialising in the technical branches of the Senior Service, and aristocrat perhaps, but devoted to professionalism and the lower deck. He traces Mountbatten's life and career in the context of the end of empire and the fading Europe of crowned heads, follows his studies at Osborn and Dartmouth and, importantly, at Keyham College of Engineering. He shows the dedicated student making the most of average abilities but coming out on top, then service in World War I on Admiral Beaty's flagship 'Queen Elizabeth, regretting that he could not serve at Jutland with his cousin, the future George VI. His 'apprenticeship' continued with service on state-of-the-art vessels like the 'Repulse', the fastest and most heavily-armed battle cruiser of the day, and took a significant turn away from the more glamorous deck officer role to the Royal Signal School at Portsmouth, later serving as Fleet Wireless Officer in the Mediterranean Fleet. It was Mountbatten's experience at Flotilla Captain and Captain of HMS 'Kelly' and the failure of the Dieppe Raid, after his promotion as Advisor on Combined Operations, that both established his reputation as naval icon with the common touch - in the film 'In Which We Serve' - and raised the controversy as to his strategic foresight. His qualities were to be tested almost to destruction as the volume ends with his appointment as Supreme Allied Commander South East Asia. Smith brings Mountbatten to life and uncovers the essential qualities. Beneath the rich, aristocratic, pleasure-loving and privileged exterior there was a deeply human, even vulnerable but driven character - and a pivotal figure in the imperial and military history of the twentieth century.

Früher Rebell, heute Vorbild: Prinz Harry ist einer der populärsten Royals und steht gemeinsam mit seiner künftigen Frau Meghan für das neue, moderne Selbstverständnis des britischen Königshauses. Die renommmierte Journalistin Angela Levin hat Harry lange eng begleitet und zahlreiche exklusive Gespräche mit ihm geführt. Hierauf und auf viele Insiderinformationen gestützt zeichnet sie ein hochinteressantes Bild des Menschen hinter der schillernden Medienfigur. Ihr Buch beleuchtet Harrys turbulente Kindheit, seine rebellische Teenagerzeit und die bis heute reichenden Auswirkungen des tragischen Verlustes seiner geliebten Mutter Diana – aber auch die Schlüsselmomente, die dem Prinzen halfen, mit seinen Ängsten und Problemen fertig zu werden. Dabei gelingt der Autorin das Porträt eines jungen Mannes, der das Charisma seiner Mutter geerbt hat und heute Menschen mit ähnlichen Problemen, wie er sie selbst hatte, hilft.
