Manjula’s account of the death of a princessView(s):
The death of Diana, Princess of Wales at the age of 36 on August 31, 1997, was a shattering tragedy that caused grief and shock around the world. The most photographed woman in the world, the People’s Princess as she was fondly known, was snatched away in the prime of life. Diana died in a high speed car crash being pursued by paparazzi through the streets of Paris, her car crashing in the Pont de l’Alma tunnel. She was rushed to hospital but never regained consciousness.
It took only days for conspiracy theorists to sharpen their stilettos and since 1997 many are the stories of plots to murder a princess who was proving to be a liability for certain parties not in the least the House of Windsor.
D. Manjula Senaratne, bestselling author of 12:12:12 recounts in Sinhala, a gory tale ‘inspired by true events’- a chilling account of intrigue surrounding Diana’s death in the form of a novel.
Manjula, 52, was a journalist working with Lankadeepa and Tharunaya and currently resides in Paris.
Having written nine books previously– six novels and three short story collections, D. Manjula’s latest – a Muses publication- is available at bookshops priced at Rs. 1400.
