    1. This book was banned here in the UK although I don't know why as everything in here is more or less common knowledge now. Good read - thoroughly enjoyed it.Back Cover Blurb:As housekeeper to Prince Charles and Princess Diana at their Highgrove mansion from 1985 until the royal couple's 1992 separation, Wendy Berry witnessed the slow disintegration of what was initially christened a fairy tale marriage. To her, it was clear from the very beginning that these two people, each possessing singularly [...]


    2. Wendy Berry is a more than competent writer. And the royal family is absolutely ghastly. Monarchy vs. republic? Call me a republican (in the UK meaning of the word rather than the American one). I think I'm finally starting to get sick of reading about self-absorbed, horrible, manipulative people who burn hundreds of thousands of pounds' worth of unwanted gifts that could have gone to charity; scream humiliating abuse at their employees; and think they're entitled to the world on a silver platte [...]


    3. I did like the book and can agree with some of the less than stellar reviews.Diana was quite mercurial and took out her emotions on the staff and this shows. To be fair, Charles fired everyone at Highgrove after the separation which I found worse than Diana's moods. I found it interesting nonetheless, to see Highgrove's ups and downs from a staff's perspective. And she does have some good tidbits about the Wales'. Her oft repeated idea that a daughter would save their marriage brought the book d [...]


    4. This book was copyrighted in 1995, two years before Diana died. It was written by a former housekeeper of Di and Charles' weekend home. The housekeeper had left under poor circumstances and was angry. I felt that the book was a fair assessment of the situation. This book did not put Diana in a good light when she was in private. This book did take Diana off her pedestal for me. I am glad I read it.


    5. This book came across less like a diary than as backstairs gossip by an employee who was sacked. Clearly a monarchist, the bias toward Charles is obvious with absolutely no mention of Camilla's constant presence (as proved time and again in other publications). That said, to have worked for this family as long as she did is amazing. What a horrible group of people!


    6. This book was a big disappointment mean-spirited. I guess there's quite an up side to not be wealthy, not having servants, and not being subject to this sort of tell-all book. I would feel so betrayed!


    7. The author does come off as mean spirited and that is why I only gave it three stars. She seemed very high and mighty given the fact she was only a housekeeper.


    8. I'm not sure why I decided to read this after how I felt about Andrew Morton's Diana biography. This was certainly less biased toward Diana, but it really didn't flatter any of the royals.


    9. Interesting to read events written while the Princess was alive and living with Prince Charles. I found Wendy Berry's accounting of privileged "insider's" information a little disloyal and at times I was uncomfortable with it. This was a strange reaction , I'll admit, because these trashy books were written to satisfy the public's appetite for anything "royal". I'm the guilty public! Anyway, at some points during the book, Wendy Berry seemed to be sympathetic to Prince Charles while pretending t [...]


    10. The banner across the front of the book says "Banned in Britain!" This is a tell-all book by Wendy Berry, who worked for several years at Highgrove, Prince Charles' country house, from 1985 until Charles and Diana's separation in 1992, when it appears the royal couple did quite a bit of staff housecleaning.If you aren't new to reading about the marriage of the Prince and Princess of Wales, then Wendy Berry's account of the numerous screaming matches, rendezvous with lovers, and erratic behavior [...]


    11. 3 1/2 stars. A quick read, it was interesting enough to fly through fairly quickly. It needed more editing and tidying up, but still decent.



    12. Good head turn off book. Nobody comes across as very nice though Charles better than Di.The sole reason I rated it as high as I did was it's mindless quality.
