I think the Earl is a man who needs a woman around and loves the chase and not the marriage.

Maybe what he likes is that rush of excitement when you first fall in love, but he's not suited to the daily life of marriage?

Maybe its a bit of both.

The chase, the excitement of new love.

As the Earl has his heir (and a spare), I don't know why he continues to get engaged/married. What it sounds like he needs (because I don't know him) is a nice companion --- well off, attractive, intelligent and somewhat independent. Oh...and it might be best if they don't live together. A commuter marriage of sorts.

I can't believe Earl Spencer wants to put these monstrosities in this dreamy countryside. It really is so beautiful there! I didn't think it is all that windy there anyway to warrant these huge, ugly wind turbines all over the landscape. I pray the local councils can prevent it and vote against it.
It would be like imagining a beautiful Constable landscape painting with wind turbines in it - horrible!

Wind farms kill birds. If Earl Spencer does install a wind farm, there will be fewer birds for him to shoot as sport.

People complain about things like killing birds, but the demand for energy is always increasing! And we are running out of fuels. If we don't find alternate sources like solar and wind energy, then what happens?

I actually think windmills look rather nice.

If you design them to blend into the environment. But they are usually big and white.

Interesting fact about Diana, Princess of Wales wedding dress. The dress was lighter weight for Princess Diana then the Spencer tiara. My guess would have been the opposite.

That is interesting. If the Spencer tiara was that heavy, the other tiara must have been almost unbearable.

Absolutely true about the big and white. They cannot be designed to blend. They have to sit unimpeded from all sides and that's all you see. And, they do not generate much energy and the energy that is produced is very expensive. I'm not saying it will never work, but it won't be in my lifetime.

So, will Earl Spencer bring Karen Gordon to the wedding? It would be so strange if he doesn't, since she is his fiancee.

Btw- How old are her two children?

Hope Union Station, Kansas has as many people viewing the exhibit that Grand Rapids, Michigan had. It was truly wonderful going and remembering Diana, Princess of Wales. I hope a good restaurant near the exhibit bakes wedding cake for people to buy. It was very successful in GR.

What rumor? The fact she is his fiancee and they'll marry in June has been announced in different newspapers.

Since he's William's uncle, he'll be at the wedding, so it's naturally expected that he'll bring his fiancee.

It makes sense, I wonder if William has met Karen.

If not, he'll surely meet her at the wedding; I just read somewhere that Earl Spencer is attending along with Karen Gordon.

I also read (in Christopher Andersen's book William and Kate), that Kate hasn't met the Spencers, since William is not close to his uncle.
