Diana's childhood was spent at Park House on the Sandringham Estate. Today, Park House is a hotel offered by a charity for people with disabilities, so it is possible to see the where she got her start in life.

I just can not get over the photo of Earl Spencer. He is no aging well. He is only 45 and his hair is almost totally grey and he needs to lose a few pounds. I think this time he is marrying a woman not for her looks, but for her who she is. Lady Bianca has a title and wealthy of her own, so Iif this marry doesn't turn out it won't be a fight money. Good luck to them.

Good luck to her! But she's going in with her eyes open. Better her than me.

Only time will tell. The way she looks at him suggests she's still in the adoring phase.

Can you imagine having that much "junk" in the attic. And I use the word junk very loosely, what a lovely treasure of historical items.

He's selling off what looks like 4 garter stars.
Some of the stuff I can't believe it's being sold.

The Garter Stars aren't the originals (which are returned on the death of the holder), they are replicas made for and paid by various Spencers. The making of replicas is not uncommon.

I wonder why he is selling this stuff? Did he settle with the 2nd Countess, Caroline?

But I totally understand the need to get rid of things he isn't using. How many of us have BOXES of stuff in storage with things we haven't (or anyone else for the matter) touched in years?

Earl Spencer makes £21m selling off 'family jewels' through Christie's | Mail Online

Quote:
Earl Spencer's estate was more than £21 million better off today after a three-day auction of Old Master paintings, carriages and other treasures owned by the family.
The items from Althorp, the ancestral home of Earl Spencer and his sister, the late Diana, Princess of Wales fetched a total of £21,076,288 during the sale at Christie's in London.

There seems to be a discrepancy as to how much was made at the auction. The two articles posted state different amounts.

The discrepancy is because the articles are from different days of the auction. The sale made the larger sum.

If you mean Diana?
There aren't her things, they are family heirlooms, which he has the right to sell.
And as for living there, I didn't even know she wanted to.

At about the time of the divorce she asked her brother is she could live in one of the homes on the estate. He originally said 'yes' but then changed his mind. I have read that it wasn't so much that he said 'no' as that he said 'no' to the house that she wanted as it was near the front entrance and security would be an issue.

That is also my recollection.
