I read somewhere that his friends talked him out of marriage last time by pointing out how costly a split would be! Plus, he's already got six children to provide for.

O well, he's able to afford it, I guess.

This is a situation where you would not purchase a gift before the wedding, but on the way to the ceremony.

Seriously, I don't get this guy. He must be wonderful to date and not so wonderful to be engaged/married to. Cause he seems to get some pretty nice looking women.
Delighted to hear I have my uses!!!

Is this guy completely pointless?

.... which begs the question, will he be the Earl Spencer that causes Althrop to be sold, as he has squandered all the other family wealth on expensive and pointless divorce settlements?

Ms. Gordon is quite beautiful. It's gotta be his title...and obviously, she doesn't read the newspapers.

Diana's Brother Earl Charles Spencer To Wed Again In June

I just read that Diana's brother Charles Spencer will be getting married again this summer. I had no idea he had even been divorced from his last wife!

Spencer announces wedding four months after split from last fiancée | News

Again? He is a male Liz Taylor. I've lost track how many times he has tied the knot already, followed by a messy divorce.

For the record its two divorces and at least what 2 engagements, with lots of girlfriends thrown in.

In regards to Althrop...I would guess that Earl Spencer has a great martial lawyer who has become versed in the art of the prenup. He got caught out there twice before, I don't think he would do it again. At least I hope not.

Anyone else besides me notice that this new fiancee just happens to be a philanthropist? Are we seeing dollar signs in Charlie's eyes this time? I sure do hope she has a good pre-nup lawyer.

I expect that marrying the Earl Spencer does result in some martial goings-on.

I can't think she has all that much cash, though.
Wasn't she previously married to a Hollywood producer? So she may have gotten a large divorce settlement, but probably not enough to run Althorp, which must cost a fortune to run.

But it may not come to that; there's several months until the wedding! Who knows, he may fall in love with someone else by then!

I just do not get it. With his track record, why would any woman
want him. Is it money, the title. He is not handsome, this woman
is pretty and bright, why?

A rather snarky article that touches on a bit of what we have said.

-------------------------------

This June, when the sweet peas are in frilly bloom at Althorp, Earl Spencer will marry for the third time at his grand Northamptonshire seat.
As the guests gather for the ceremony, to be held near the lake where his sister Diana is buried on a small island, perhaps they will hark anew at the wonder of aristocratic love once more triumphing over common experience.
