First edition, inscribed by Charles Spencer on the title page "to Irene, Charles Spencer 6th August, 2001". Privately printed for the Earl, the book reproduces the text of the eulogy he gave for his sister, Princess Diana, at her funeral in Westminster Abbey in 1997.

Televised across the world, the Earl's speech, where he attacked the media for hounding Diana and the Royal Family for their coldness to her, was an iconic part of the funeral; very unusually for a funeral oration, the attendants applauded the speech as the tearful Earl concluded. The book is attractively printed and presents well in its protective box; aside from copies presented by the Earl to friends and family, the volume was sold to visitors at his Althorp estate, where Diana is buried.
