The Princess And The President: Fact Or Fiction?

The stakes are high. Will it add to the list of famous lovers of the late Princess of Wales on behalf a little borrowed from former President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing? The statement is tedious. To summarize: the bodyguard Barry Mannakee, Professor riding unchivalrous James Hewitt, who told in a book, Princess in Love, passion of four years, the banker Philip Dunne, David Waterhouse, David Kerr, the master of 'rugby team Will Carling, Oliver Hoare, the antiques, not forgetting the Pakistani surgeon Hasnat Khan, the last lover, Dodi al-Fayed, and even the butler Paul Burrell, who saw fit to sell its intimate memories.


Diana, Princess of Wales († 36) - did she have a secret fling with Giscard d'Estaing (83)? A novel by the former French President suggests that may have been the case.


Eighty-three-year-old former French president Valery Giscard d'Estaing has brightened the days of his long retirement by writing a romantic novel about a French leader's affair with a Welsh princess.

To be published next month, Giscard's "The Princess and the President" recounts the secret and passionate love of two characters clearly modelled closely on both himself and the late Diana, Princess of Wales.




Recast as President Jacques-Henri Lambertye and Princess Patricia of Cardiff, the pair meet at the closing dinner of a G7 summit at a time when the young British royal has been left miserable by her husband's adultery.

- I kissed her hand and she gave me a questioning look, her slate-grey eyes widening as she tilted her head gently forward - the presidential first-person narrator recounts, according to an excerpt published Monday in Le Figaro.

According to the newspaper, Giscard's book rises above the level of a well written romantic novel because of the wealth of detail he is able to supply about the French and British characters and the palaces in which they meet.

The "Princess and the President" will be released in Paris in French on October 1
As befits a member of the prestigious Academie Francaise, the president also alludes to the literary classics such as Alexandre Dumas' tales of the love between French princess Anne of Austria and the Duke of Buckingham.

But the book will most likely cause the biggest stir as the latest to cash in on the
posthumous Diana publishing industry, particularly as it includes a playful hint that there might be an element of truth in the story.

According to Le Figaro, the book opens with the phrase "Promise kept" and ends with: "'You asked me for permission for you to write your story,' she told me. 'I give you it, but you must make me a promise ...'."

The "Princess and the President" will be released in Paris in French on October 1 by
publishers Fallois-Xo.


Here are some extracts from the book :

“I kissed her hand and she gave me a questioning look, her slate-grey eyes widening as she tilted her head gently forward.”

“I stood up and pushed back my chair to allow the Princess of Cardiff to sit down. She thanked me with one of those oblique looks that revealed all her charm.”

“The Morning Telegraph’s front page headline which I translated wrote: ‘The Princess of Wales spent night at French president’s castle.”

“I can still hear her speaking to me in English. It’s not my memory that brings it back, it’s her voice: ‘I wish that you love me’.”

“I returned to the Elysée and walked up the steps, my head on fire and my heart
sparkling with happiness.”

All of France is wondering – is there a link to reality in the book?

The author is remaining silent for now.

    “美”是主觀的,因此在規劃系統傢俱設計前最重要的就是消費者與室內設計師之間的溝通,消費者以生活使用需求以及喜好提供訊息而室內設計師端則以專業經歷、人體工學、色彩運用…等整合全部資訊作為規劃的主體原則,如此的成果才能符合實際。

    系統傢俱在市場上已運用許久,且早已經跳脫出早期的單元櫃,取而代之的不單只是優質的環保建材,更涵蓋整體的設計感都能契合消費者的需求。當然也可以運用巧思再增添實用及樂趣,以下由實際的個案為您打開系統傢俱的新視野。

    1.顏色搭配

    系統傢俱顏色確實是十分主觀的印象,但是顏色卻能清楚傳達直覺的感受,因此如何搭配顏色也是系統傢俱很重要的一環,且運用於不同的功能的空間都需要以室內設計顏色來突顯特色。

    ★下方運用深色黑鐵刀木紋,左右為霧銀色以及上方白色結晶鋼烤亮面門板的混搭室內設計,踢腳板以淺色楓木洗白木纹並內縮1/3減少碰撞。

    ★運用淺黃色、蘋果綠、澄紅色三色混搭出老少咸宜的鮮豔色彩,也增添系統傢俱空間的明亮程度以及活潑性。

    2.比例原則

    系統傢俱中櫥櫃設計的美觀除了顏色之外在長寬比例與對稱等分,則是直覺上最容易呈現的感覺;所謂長寬比例所指的是由正面觀看的高度與寬度比利,對稱等分則是連續銜接的櫥櫃掌握同等寬度的原則,上述兩項原則並不會使櫥櫃失去活潑與設計感,反而更能提升系統傢俱櫥櫃整體性。

    ★衣櫃門片尺寸以總長等分的規劃方式。

    ★左右對稱的高櫃以及下方矮櫃左右兩邊大小對稱的等分原則,當然上方高櫃亦可選用單邊也是系統傢俱不錯的選擇。

    ★採用比例對稱並不一定是一成不變的造型,間隔對稱呈現另ㄧ種不同的風貌。SEO
