This book is more than a guide to the newly created seven mile Memorial Walk traversing the parks. Individual chapters describe the history of the 3 palaces (Kensington, Buckingham and St Jamess) and 2 mansions (Clarence House and Spencer House), covering changes over the years, their occupants and their use today. All are liberally illustrated with family portraits, sketches and contemporary photographs. It is in part a biography of the Princess and also a light and chatty portrait providing an insight into some of the famous people to have touched the Royal Parks. * Introductory chapter celebrating the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, describing her particular love of the Royal Parks * Individual chapters on Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace, St Jamess Palace, Clarence House and Spencer House * Includes a detailed map of the Memorial Walk * Chapters on Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Green Park and St Jamess Park - with interesting facts on the statuary, flora and fauna, and the Parks history over the centuries
