"This family did not have a drop of humanity in it before. I think I've changed that." --Diana

For all that's been written about the People's Princess, no one has yet penetrated palace walls to reveal what has really happened to the Royal Family she left behind ten years ago--until now. In the manner of his No. 1 New York Times bestsellers The Day Diana Died, The Day John Died, and his bestsellers Jack and Jackie, Jackie After Jack and Diana's Boys, Christopher Andersen draws on important new sources to paint the first full portrait of a Royal Family still haunted by the ghost of Diana.

All the compelling elements of a true dynastic saga are here: power, sex, wealth, intrigue, betrayal, tragedy and scandal. But so too is the Princess's legacy of love and compassion--alive in the sons who have grown and are now forging legacies of their own.

Among After Diana's stunning revelations:

The many times Diana predicted with uncanny accuracy how she would die; why she feared for Camilla's life as well; the surprising, never-before-revealed identity of the woman Diana really felt might one day be Queen.

New details about the days after Diana's death--Charles's reaction the moment he saw Diana's body, how Camilla dealt with suddenly becoming the most hated woman in the world, her secret eight-year campaign to replace Diana.

How William and Harry have dealt with the public and private pressures--from drugs to Nazi uniforms to lap dances and barroom brawls, fresh details about the Princes' wild behavior and the demons that still haunt them.

How Charles cheated on Camilla as well as Diana; the intriguing other women in the Prince of Wales's life.

Inside Operation Paget, Scotland Yard's ongoing probe into Diana's death--why, ten years after, investigators were still shocked by what they found.

The day Charles was asked point-blank by Scotland Yard if he killed his wife--and what he said.

The many beautiful young women in the lives of William and Harry over the past ten years--including Will's longtime love Kate Middleton, her chances of one day becoming Queen and why he fears she may meet the same fate as his mother.

William's obsession with speed; Harry's hunger for risk-taking; a thirst for battle that could lead both Princes to combat in Iraq.

New information on whether the Queen plans to step aside and who she wants to see succeed her on the throne.

Sometimes heartbreaking, often inspiring, always riveting, After Diana is more than just the first comprehensive, compelling biography of the House of Windsor as it is today. It is a bittersweet tale of love, loss, duty, and destiny. It is the story of a family.
