In 1981 Lady Diana Spencer was destined to ascend the British throne, innocent young wife to the future King Charles III. With her beauty, modesty, and charitable good works, she seemed the perfect addition to bring the Royal Family into the twenty-first century. Instead, she brought a revolution.
Twenty years later, the comforting illusion of royalty as we knew it is gone forever. Diana is dead, the Windsors are different and Prince Charles faces the dilemma of being a very different sort of King than people expected.
This will be a very rare event with P.D. Jephson, Diana's closest aide, private secretary and adviser during her years of her greatest public fame and deepest personal crisis. P.D. Jephson will provide a firsthand experience behind the scenes of one of the most famous icons, Princess Diana, who remains a contradictory enigma. P.D. Jephson’s upcoming book is called Shadows of a Princess.
Learn for the first time the secrets and behind the scenes of Princess Diana.
6:00pm, cash bar reception; 6:30pm lecture, gratis. Advance reservations required by Friday, July 14th.
