Well, there are some references in press that, when in London, sometimes the Spencer girls meet with Harry:
Daily Express | Express Yourself :: Auntie Diana would have been so proud

Who's that girl? Harry's mystery Chelsy substitute is revealed as... his 16 year old cousin | Mail Online

Despite that, Kitty Spencer has been in London for some days, with exciting social life (including a party or something as guest of Jade Jaeger). This weekend she'll be in Paris for "polite society" ball...

Just some trivia. I read that Diana, Princess of Wales was very impress
with Viscount Linley's furniture business. I think she would be proud in her brother's business.

It's an interesting article by Spencer. But he doesn't seem to grasp the irony of his critique of the effect of second and subsequent wives upon the aristocratic families, given that he has inflicted the same burden upon his own son and Althorp.

Yes, I agree. I thought that his talking about his step-mother in such a way was in bad taste as well.

Well I guess you can't expect everyone to grow up; but it was an interesting article.

I thought it was an interesting article and he certainly talked about Raine but he did raise some valid points.

In addition to the death tax that many old families have to pay, it was interesting to note how some second marriages are doing the same thing. And by same thing I mean that it is doing or harming the British aristocracy. I actually purchased the magazine because of the article (I used to subscribe to Vanity Fair in the Tina Brown days it was a better magazine IMO). I can't recall the name of person who disinherited his son and heir and left everything to the 2nd wife! I would be a little upset as well.

And in some instances when the marriages (of the first or second wife) ends they have to sell a little bit of their heirtage to pay the alimony.

PRENUP PRENUP PRENUP...is that something that is available in England? It sounds unromantic but it protects everyone's assets that were obtained pre marriage.

I found the article a little bit about everything. He had the chance to tell one and all about Raines' irresponsible ways of discarding, selling and mishandling the Spencer's treasures then he jumped to other families but I could not find the message of this article. He made Raines seem like a grabbing step mother who sold part of his inheritance but forgot his father's responsibility in any of this.
BTW Prenuptial agreements are not legal or valid in the UK.

I'm surprised Prenups are not legal in the UK. Does anyone know what Caroline, Countess Spencer recieved in her divorce settlement?

I have learned that Diana, A Celebration is coming in November to my Art Museum at Grand Rapids, Michigan. I can not wait to see the exhibit. It has now started to be exhibited in Atlanta, Georgia.

We are able to get the exhibit because one of the Amway founder's Devos relative asked Earl Spencer if we could have the exhibit in a midsize town in America. Amway headquarters is in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

They say about 90 million people will see the exhibit.

I'm so proud Dad stood up for himself, says Earl Spencer's daughter Kitty | Mail Online

In her first full interview, Earl Spencer’s daughter Kitty remembers her father’s notorious speech, the divorce battle -- and the crash that nearly killed the Spencer family.

In this article she talks about a plane crash she, her dad and her siblings were in, does anyone know when this crash was? I have never heard of it before.

I've read in another article (which was refering to this one) that it happened 4 years ago.
Earl Spencer is mad putting his 4 children in such a risk. A scruffy plane flying to Mozambique??!!
It's impressing as this girl is humble and adorable!!!
Here's there's a sweet confirmation of the genetics laws:

I'm sorry but just because the plane was "scruffy" was probably not why it broke down.
You have state of the art 747's crashing due to engine failure.
They survived thats the most important thing.

Its wonderful that she spoke out, it's unfortunate that we don't see more of her.

Kitty Spencer has blue eyes like Princess Diana. I think her facial features are like her dad's. Her body is Spencer in my opinion. But her hair looks like her mother's. She is very pretty in an wholesome way. Hopefully she has a personality like her aunt.
