A Royal Duty, Paperback
1 out of 5 (1 rating)


This is the untold story behind one of the most sensational chapters in the history of the House of Windsor.

Paul Burrell fought to clear his own name. Now he reveals new truths about Princess Diana - and presents for the first time as faithful an account of her thoughts as we can ever hope to read.

He was the favourite footman who formed a unique relationship with the Queen.

He was the butler who the Princess of Wales called 'my rock' and 'the only man I can trust'.

He was accused of theft, then acquitted following the historic intervention of the monarch.

He was the Princess' most intimate confidante - and is the only person able to separate the myth from the truth of the Diana years.

Now at last Paul Burrell cuts through the gossip and the lies and takes us closer to the complex heart of the Royal Family then ever before.

Review by

The book is mainly Burell's autobiography. It is slow, full of uninteresting bits about the royal family and where they live and what they do... It made me dislike them all the more. It was a disappointing book, and so far many of us in the book club gave up on this book.
