About This Title

A poetic exploration of the House of Windsor at the end of the 20th Century

In Diana, Charles, & the Queen, National Book Award finalist William Heyen captures the successes and shortcomings of the British royal family. His poetic vision allows us to see the humanity of each character: a young Elizabeth contemplating love while crying into a cloth woven by Gandhi, a gallant Prince Charles courts a wide-eyed Diana with anecdotes of his travels, and gradually, a frustrated Diana as her marriage crumbles in its later years.

Completed before the tragic death of Princess Diana in 1997, this book is a multi-leveled literary work, stunning in its depth, and far removed from what has previously been offered on the subject of the royal family.


Childhood

At Windsor, this artifact: the bullet
from Lord Nelson's heart; & this: the shirt
worn by Charles I when executed—
still stained black with his blood;

& these: the prayer book of Sir Thomas More;
from Joan of Arc, one charred molar;
the Green Knight's sword & breastplate;
Grendel's evil eye solidified to agate. . .
