The failed custody action and what Frances' mother did caused an unhealed breach in family relations which seems to remain unresolved to this day. It's good to read "her side", after hearing so much gossipy garbage about how she "bolted" from Diana's father for another man, and learning the real reasons behind her decision. Also, Paul Burrell's recent book portrays Frances SO badly (and I believe most unfairly). I love this book because it gives me insights into Diana's family that I never would have known.

Frances Ruth Shand Kydd (previously Spencer, née Roche; 20 January 1936 – 3 June 2004) was the mother of Diana, Princess of Wales. As such, she was the maternal grandmother of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, respectively second and sixth in the line of succession to the British throne. Following her divorce from Viscount Althorp in 1969, and later Diana's death in 1997, Shand Kydd devoted the final years of her life to Roman Catholic charity work.

This story of the life of Mrs. Frances Shand Kydd, mother of Diana, grandmother of William and Harry of Wales . Frances Shand Kydd, mother of Diana, grandmother of William and Harry of Wales, is a good example of that genre. It is written with the subject's co-operation, and, not surprisingly, is sympathetic to her perspective. It does help one's understanding of modern British history, I believe, to grasp the fact that the upper classes of Britain have a long heritage of rotten child-rearing practices.

This biography finally told me a great deal about a person I knew very little about (except for gossipy bits from "Diana" bios). It is well-written, sympathetic to the subject, yet fair. You learn that Frances was the warm-hearted child of a reserved mother and an affectionate father; just a very nice, somewhat emotionally insecure girl, who unfortunately made the mistake of marrying the wrong man (The Earl Spencer), and has basically had to pay for that mistake, for her whole life.

Some of the mistakes of her own upbringing were repeated by her with her children, to the greater detriment of her two younger children. However, it could be be said that a major part of the damage done to Diana and to Charles Spencer occurred because Frances lost custody thanks to her mother & The Earl Spencer's machinations, and the mores of the time. She was sidelined as a mother, both by this failed custody action and because she removed herself from England with her new husband, seeking a new beginning. The failed custody action and what Frances' mother did caused an unhealed breach in family relations which seems to remain unresolved to this day.

It's good to read "her side", after hearing so much gossipy garbage about how she "bolted" from Diana's father for another man, and learning the real reasons behind her decision. Also, Paul Burrell's recent book portrays Frances SO badly (and I believe most unfairly). Frances deserved the chance to tell her version of events and in Max Riddington she found the means to do so. It's well done, interesting, and a must-read for those who want to hear ALL sides of the story of Frances, and to understand the character of Diana, Princess of Wales a little better too.

This give a whole new dimension to Diana. No one ever mentions that Diana took her boys to see their grandmother in Scotland or says anything nice about her mother. In fact Diana and her mother seem to have interacted quite a bit. Although squabbles always between a mother and daughter, I am surprised that biographers of Diana so often ignore this. Diana had many traits of her mother but was herself too. Her mother gets such a bad rap I am amazed by this book. Another thing that amazes me is that her mother kept waiting for an invitation to see her daughter before her burial. Why did she not phone up Kensingsington Palace and ASK? I doubt that they would have refused her. Alas, with all the hullabaloo surrounding the funeral, I think she should have realized she must act herself. Also waiting for a note or call from the Queen. Why torture yourself, that was so not going to happen. The Queen has always been totally aloof, and this was a crisis for her.

Well written and cleared up incorrect facts previously published about Francis, and also her relationship with all her children.
She was a remarkable woman who endured immense sadness, much of it because of the bitter old man she married and divorced.

Well written. So nice to read about Princess Diana's life and family from another perspective. Clearly Ms. Riddington enjoyed getting to know Princess Diana's mother and realized that her story was one to be told.

I love this book because it gives me insights into Diana's family that I never would have known.
I've read quite a bit about her since she first became known to the public and I've always
loved Diana.

Her mother Frances is a real person and deserves her chance to speak. I'd encourage everyone
with an interest in Diana to read this.

All good

What a deep insight into an amazing lady who in the end, found true peace. Diana was a lot like her Mother and it's interesting to see how their lives were so closely intertwined

I can't recall ever coming across another book on the late Princess of Wales' mother, but this rehashes all the familiar stories of her famous divorce & lost custody battle, and tries to explain her tenuous relationship with her children. While a sympathetic character, she has always seemed somewhat mysterious and I can't say this has cleared much up in that regard. I'm unsure why she agreed to cooperate with this effort, unless she knew it was to be written anyway and thought she'd try and get her part right. She seems a lonely and isolated figure, partly by her own design, but nonetheless seems to have not had such a nice life after her first marriage. Her second marriage seems to have been ruined by her daughter's fame. I consider myself a bit of an expert on the POW, and unfortunately this book didn't tell me much I didn't know already.
