Inspector Ken Wharfe, the first royalty protection officer to publish a memoir, was a crucial figure in the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, for nearly seven years. He became a close friend and trusted confidant. His first-hand contradicts many of the so-called "facts" about Diana and provides affectionate, if not always uncritical, insight. He played an important role during Diana's most trying times, and in her sons' formative years, and he shows himself to be an exceptionally perceptive observer. This account presents the most intimate portrait of Diana to date, as well as a fitting tribute to one of the outstanding figures of our age.

I have read several books about Diana and this is my favorite. The author writes of what it was like to protect the princess on her excursions at home and abroad. He seems to have had a good relationship with Diana and especially her boys.

At the end of the book, he explains how the Diana's death may have been prevented if she would have accepted the security that was offered by the palace but that she did not want because of her feelings toward the royal family.
