My top 10 Favorite Diana Photo Books

Diana was undoubtly the most photographed woman in the world. It was only natural to take those photographs of her and publish a book. Some of the most repsected Royal Photographers who followed Diana around the globe did just this very thing.  Today there are books on Diana’ fashion, hair and makeup as well as her worldy travels. So which ones are the best of for photographs of the most photographed woman? Here is my list.
