First, the bad ending: After her tell-all interview, the Princess is declared Unfit to Be a Princess and is taken to the Tower of London, where she remains locked up—the Royal Bulimic, the Mad Woman of Versace. (That stunning white Versace cocktail sheath she wore towards the end is on display in the Dianabilia room at the Victoria and Albert Museum.)
