Going to go in Nov. Will tell you all about it. I really want to see her wedding dress. I am interested in the material. It seems so beautiful in all the photos of it.

Earl Spencer and his fiancee split up as friends say he's a 'control freak' | Mail Online

Quote:
He didn’t have the greatest track record for romance, yet when Earl Spencer met Bianca Eliot at the Groucho Club it was love at first sight.
But now, six months after the twice-married aristocrat proposed, the wedding is off – with friends of Lady Eliot accusing him of being a ‘control freak’.

As one put it: ‘He is very set in his ways. It is his way or nothing. There is no compromise, and that can be very difficult sometimes.

Give him another 6 months and he'll have new arm candy.

Are we really surprised at this?

That man needs help. He is so different from his sisters, I think Charles is spoiled and its made him into an ugly person.

I think the Earl wanted Lady Eliot to split up with him from both their actions. Lady Eliot and Earl Spencer from what I read were opposites. Charles controlling and Bianca a free spirit. I think that the Earl was to busy to see her left the break up in her hands and through lawyers. I always thought this match was about titles for the Earl.

Of course he is spoilt - the much wanted son coming after the disappointment of three daughters so his father indulged him and his sisters babied him and he was made to think that he was better than everyone else and they would simply bow down to him.

I can't say I am surprised. I wasn't sure if they would actually get married. I think she had a lucky escape.

I agree, later down the road she might be thankful this happened.

This Sunday in Grand Rapids, MI, the English music director for special events of the BRF is giving a performance of music from Diana, Princess of Wales wedding and funeral.
Monday the exhibit is having a special opening for Diana a Celebration in Grand Rapids, MI. They are recreating the wedding cake. I go to the exhibit in two weeks. I hope the gift shop has some interesting items to buy.

Big article in the GR press about the handling of Princess Diana's wedding dress. It sure looks beautiful in the photo. I can not believe the dress is 29 years old.

After I see the exhibit I will go to the hotel down the street selling pieces of C&D wedding cake that was made to exact recipe. I think that will end the day of Princess Diana memories nicely. Just love the small American city that I live in.
