When Princess Diana flew to Pakistan in May 1997, she went to meet the family of Dr Hasnat Khan, the man she wanted to marry. One of the most beautiful and famous women in the world, she hoped to persuade Dr Khan's mother that she would make a suitable wife for her son. Had she succeeded, the events of that summer night might have been very different . . .
Using powerful testimony from some of Diana's closest friends, 'Diana: Her Last Love' gives a unique insight into Diana's world and a new interpretation of events central to the last years of her life. According to Diana's confidant, Imran Khan, Hasnat was the man Diana wanted to spend the rest of her life with. For the first time, Dr Khan's family talk about how they came to know and love Diana, and the pressures faced by Hasnat, a dedicated doctor and a very private man, who found himself thrust into the spotlight.
Putting the story in context with the rest of Diana's life, Kate Snell shows how Diana would have converted to Islam if it meant she could win the hand of Hasnat. She also argues that when Hasnat finally broke off their relationship, Diana planned several strategies to win him back - including using the media and Dodi Al Fayed to make Hasnat jealous.
