International bestselling author James Patterson is back with a new book with co-author Chris Mooney. Ahead of the late Princess Diana’s 25th death anniversary on August 31, 2022, Patterson and Mooney’s new book titled ‘Diana, William, and Harry: The Heartbreaking Story of a Princess and Mother’ was published on August 15, 2022.
As the title suggests, ‘Diana, William, and Harry’ is a biography of the late people’s Princess and her sons– Prince William and Harry. While a lot has been said and written about House of Windsor, the late Princess Diana, and the UK’s royal family, Patterson and Mooney highlight a new side of the late princess in this new biography. Soon after marrying Prince Charles at a young age, Princess Diana became a favourite among people across the world and she was soon fondly called the “people’s princess” by many. This book gives a lesser-known glimpse of her life as a mother of two young boys– Prince William and his younger brother Harry. The book also addresses the many issues Diana faced– be it mental health problems or dealing with cold in-laws– with utmost sensitivity and compassion. From her early days to marrying Prince Charles to becoming a mother of two beautiful children to her doomed marriage, scandals, and untimely death– the book covers all this and much more. Coming to the present-day situation of the Royal family, the book makes the readers think how things could have been different had Princess Di been alive today.
The subject of the book– Princess Diana– would fascinate many royal fans to pick this biography. Patterson and Mooney’s pacy writing style makes it an interesting and timely read.
How critics view the book:
Kirkus Reviews writes, “A good choice for readers who can’t get enough of Diana.”
Publishers Weekly writes, “Patterson (James Patterson by James Patterson) and thriller author Mooney (Remembering Sarah) mix biography and imagined dialogue in this intimate portrait of Princess Diana and her sons, William and Harry.”
Men’s Journal says, “Royal fans will devour this well-paced biography that gives new insight into the House of Windsor. You’ll tear through it by sundown and walk away thinking about the Princess of Wales and her two sons with new perspective.”
