Earl Spencer's Interview

I didn't think it was all that interesting. Of course, I tuned in to watch but I also have a less than glowing reaction to anything Earl Spencer does given how often he let his sister down during her lifetime. The family footage shot by his father of a very young Diana was captivating. But his comments were not very revealing......same old, same old "rifts with Royal Family overplayed," "am here for my nephews but they don't find it all that much fun to be with a 40 year old uncle,"......Nothing earthshattering. It's nice the Diana exhibit is on the road (now in Florida). It would be interesting to find out how much of the proceeds go to Althrop and Earl Spencer and how much to her Fund. I did find one thing interesting--he said certain grand English homes like his with important art and such are required to be open 3 months a year anyway--and so he incorporated the Diana Museum to further increase interest and profits during those months. And I will also say the portions of the traveling exhibit looked very interesting--if it would come to the Midwest one day, I would make every effort to see it. Any other thoughts on the interview?

They DO, however find it fun to be with an 80+ grandfather.

Unhappy He let her down.

I can only add that when ,soon after her divorce, Di asked Charles, the brother to whom she has been a kind of mum, to spend some time at Althorp, her own family home, she wanted to rest, she was a wreck, she needed a brother 's affection and understanding, and a place where to hide, he flatly refused, OMG, how can he talk about di as he does now, when she for once in her life, did need his support and he let her down. what a hypocrite.....he even sent his 1st wife to a mental hospital as she was depressed, I heard he even abused her, don't know in what way.

I think, to be fair, he was concerned about security at Althorp. In addition to Diana and her children, he had to be concerned about his own family and Althorp. I'm not sure what it would have entailed to keep Diana safe from physical threats, but it might have been quite difficult to keep reporters away -- and his own children would have been the focus of those photographers too.

(On the negative side we also know that his marriage wasn't going well, he was cheating, and his wife had an eating disorder and substance abuse problems -- he might not have wanted media attention on that part of his life.)

If he had new images or insults. everyone would say that he is trying to get attention from her memory. I think his museum is a fitting tribute to his sister, Since Diana was a huge part in his life. I also think that he did treat Diana unkindly in some ways while she was alive, but I also understand that Diana made the decision to marry Prince Charles; her brother did not force her. It was not his fault that Diana had all of her problems. I understand that he may not have wanted to punish his family because of her.

You're right, how could HE have forced Diana into the marriage? He was only about 17 at the time.

As he's getting older, he's becoming the spitting image of his father.

Isn't it interesting how history repeats itself. As with his father, his first marriage was a disaster, and with his second wife, he is much calmer. It is like a Frances/Raine situation. I am glad to see though, that his first wife Victoria has recovered and now lives happily in South Africa.

Earl Spencer and second wife Caroline

I have just read on Hello website that Earl Spencer has just split from his second wife Caroline. Does someone has more information from British newspapers ? I thought she was pregnant ?

She had her 2nd child in April (a girl) and from what I've heard (and don't quote me) he walked out on her. Something to do with an accusation that he "came on" to his best friend's wife. I guess he got into a physical fight with this friend in front of several witnesses, including some of the Earl's own children.

I was very surprised to see the news that Earl Spencer's second marriage has failed, especially so soon after the birth of their second child together. (I saw the news in People magazine.)

Has anybody recent pictures of the children of Earl Spencer?

His daughters must be teens by know, and I have seen one picture, which was once here, but it was too small!

Thanks for any info!

Evidently he's taken a shine to an ambitious American anchor woman, Coleen Sullivan. They met when early last year, she visited Althorp to film a documentary for her station re. a Diana exhibition in the town in Ohio, where she was based.

In more recent news, she's quit her job to be with him, denies she broke up his marriage though. To which I say, bullocks.

Goodness gracious!

Well I feel bad for Countess Spencer (though I am sure most people will say she knew what she married!) and definitely for the kids.

Hope the new girlfriend enjoys it while it lasts. I wonder if he will bring her to the memorial service. That's kind of tacky.

Good points! I'm wondering though: it's never been clear to me how the Earl earns a living, much less how he's able to pay all this alimony..

Well he is the Earl Spencer. So didn't a large portion of the late Earl's estate go to him. I don't think he is rich like the Duke of Marlborough (he's the richest peer other than HM right) but he doesn't do too bad.

And really...I am thinking he has prenups (I assuming of course that those exist in England). But in all honestly, it sounds as if they are perfect for each other. He leaves his 2nd wife less than what 2 months after she has their daughter and she leaves her fiancee of 11 years. I am going to with the belief that she is in love with him (though I am thinking she has never met anyone like him - jet setter and all that). When I heard that they had separated my first thought was of another woman...and I was hoping I was wrong..but alas it was not meant to be. Good for his older kids being disgusted with her arrival at Christmas. Does the man ever think of anyone but himself?!

I don't understand how anyone can leave their spouse so soon after the birth of a child- unless of course the one is leaving because the spouse is abusive.

ETA: Love this part of the article:

Gotta love it. He better not piss her off. LOL
