I'd have liked to have seen this exhibit, but it was never close enough to where I live. The note about her sitting next to Prince Charles at Princess Margaret's 50th Birthday Party was poignant. Lady Jane Wellesley was apparently on his other side.

I still think the exhibit should've toured New York, Washington D.C., Chicago and California.

I think that the closest it ever came to me was Toronto, which is over a day's drive from where I live.

Princess Diana's memorial 'neglected', former royal chef claims

Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer has been criticised for allowing her memorial stone to become "messy and overgrown", by her former chef.

Darren McGrady, who worked for the Princess of Wales after her divorce from Prince Charles in 1996, accused her brother of neglecting the gravestone which is situated in the grounds of his Althorp Estate.

The chef tweeted a series of images of the memorial, which is placed on an island in a lake, surrounded by overgrown vegetation and algae covered water. Mr McGrady, who also spent 11 years working at Buckingham Palace, said: “If I cared for Princess Diana in life as you are doing in death I would have been fired. Please tidy up the vegetation on the island. Prove you wanted Princess Diana there through love and not just to make money.”

While Diana’s final resting place was kept a secret for security reasons, a memorial including a small temple was built on the Althorp Estate which people can visit for £18.

Mr McGrady, who now works in Texas and calls himself The Royal Chef on Twitter, added: “Made me so sad to see how Althorp Estate has neglected Princess Diana's resting place.”

A spokesman for the estate said the spread of algae was the result of a hot summer and was a common problem. He said: “Algae is an unsightly problem for many lakes in the summer months...the exceptional temperatures of this summer have made the task of keeping it entirely under control extremely difficult.”

Princess Dianas wedding gown&possessions have been returned to Wills and Harry today after the world wide tour came to a close two weeks ago

What will Prince Harry and Prince William inherit from Princess Diana?
