Our dreams indicate what is going on in the deeper parts of our minds. And that was as true for the Princess of Wales as it is for anyone else. But even internationally-respected dream analyst Joan Hanger was taken aback when she was invited to Kensington Palace to talk with Princess Diana about her dreams. The two immediately became close and the meeting was the first of many in which Diana entrusted Joan with the interpretation of dreams that puzzled and sometimes troubled her. Now Joan relates those dreams, the elements of many of which we may all experience ourselves and she explains how we can understand them. Like Diana, we can take comfort from what our dreams tell us about ourselves.
Joan Hanger was born in Adelaide, South Australia, shortly after World War II. She began producing a column on celebrity recipes for Sunday papers, ran a PR company and was a broadcaster. She became an expert on dream analysis in the early 1990s. Joan has been twice married and has four children.
