The biographer of Princess Diana has revealed how late royalty decided to strip her soul in a revealing book because she felt like a "prisoner" in the royal family.
Speaking to People magazine, the 65-year-old author, who secretly interviewed the princess for Diana: Her True Story, published in 1992, said the book turned the royalty of a fairy tale character into a person real for the first time, and the public loved it.
Morton's interviews with Diana took place while his marriage to Prince Charles collapsed behind closed doors.
"It explained Diana's feelings, her sense of isolation, her sense of being a prisoner," the author said.
"Once it leaked into the popular imagination and people came to understand who she was as a three-dimensional character, people responded to it."
He added: "And you could see that people wanted Diana's monarchy, one that was more accessible, a little more flexible." A little more empathic with its own problems and problems. "
