Agreed, she was probably happy to be rid of them, starting a new life and all. They were probably binned or given to the salvation army. Shame though, that one and her blue sweater and grey skirt are some of my fav outfits and pics of her. Most people went gaga over the clothes and jewels but her sloane ranger look was all I ever needed.

I have to admit that at first, my reaction was "A fool and his money are soon parted". I always wondered how come fools got the money in the first place.

Then I read the article. It is all being done in support of a charity that Countess Spencer supports. Whole Child which aims to take care of children in orphanages around the world. Just from the pictures in the article, Althorp looks like a beautiful estate and I wouldn't mind spending a weekend there myself.

"Champagne Charlie" seems to have put on quite a bit of weight lately and really does resemble his late father, Johnny Spencer.

I like the line about the house not being a bastion or fortress of privilege- why then does it cost £27,000 for a couple to spend a weekend. Even if some of the money goes to charity, it seems excessive.

She is not a look-alike to Diana...her eyes are really the only similar (and not exact) feature.

That paper continues to frustrate me the title makes you think that Charles was referring to his own father simply as 'Di's dad'. like that was all the man was to his son. Instead you read the article, and you find that it was John bemoaning at times he had been reduced to simply 'Di's dad' and lost his own identity. In the article Charles does a wonderful job of portraying his father as he remembers him, and shares some lovely stories. I wonder if either Harry or William have seen the painting.

Did the boys have much a relationship with their grandfather before he died? The attention is always on the royal grandparents and rarely on the other side. Well until recent years.

What a beautiful and loving tribute to Johnnie Spencer by his son. Although I've read quite a bit over the years about the Spencer family, this article really paints a very vivid picture of what Johnnie, 8th Earl Spencer was like and remembered as the gentleman he was.

Thanks for the link Dman.

During his days at Eaton, Charles Spencer (then Viscount Althorp) was best friends with (now) leading Brexiteer, Boris Johnson. I suppose that reinforces the assumption he is indeed a "fruitcake".
