As observers, we learnt that on 20th November 1995 Diana openly revealed secrets of her marriage and her personal struggles of being a royal. She divulged a considerable amount of private information, not only on the affair between her husband Charles with Camilla but also her own extra marital affairs too, shocking the nation.

I found this play to be very interesting, displaying realistic accounts of what may have occurred behind closed doors at this time. I feel that Jonathan Maitland has given Diana back her voice, highlighting some thought-provoking concepts with his rousing play.
