What a beautiful start Diana had in life ...
http://www.worldofinteriors.co.uk/
Diana, Princess of Wales moved to Althorp in her teens when her father inherited the estate and title of Earl. She did not like the house and was only there when school was not in session. This house you see is not the original Althorp. Raine, Princess Diana's step mother redecorated the whole house and sold many antiques and paintings to do it. Princess Diana's brother inherited the estate and title in 1992 and has put his imprint on Althrop.

Princess Diana had all the wealth you can want starting out in life, but was lonely inside and craved love.

Diana's childhood was spent at Park House on the Sandringham Estate. Today, Park House is a hotel offered by a charity for people with disabilities, so it is possible to see the where she got her start in life.

Can you imagine having that much "junk" in the attic. And I use the word junk very loosely, what a lovely treasure of historical items.

He's selling off what looks like 4 garter stars.
Some of the stuff I can't believe it's being sold.

The Garter Stars aren't the originals (which are returned on the death of the holder), they are replicas made for and paid by various Spencers. The making of replicas is not uncommon.

I wonder why he is selling this stuff? Did he settle with the 2nd Countess, Caroline?

But I totally understand the need to get rid of things he isn't using. How many of us have BOXES of stuff in storage with things we haven't (or anyone else for the matter) touched in years?

There seems to be a discrepancy as to how much was made at the auction. The two articles posted state different amounts.

The discrepancy is because the articles are from different days of the auction. The sale made the larger sum.

Is Diana a Tudor?

Hi all,

I've just signed up and this is my first posting so go easy please. I've traced Diana back to the great Princess Mary Tudor through her paternal grandmothers side, Cynthia Elanor Hamilton. I see there is quite a bit of talk about whether or not Diana is a Stuart via Charles II progeny but I am correct in that she is in fact a legitimate Tudor descendant but mostly down female lines? Does a legitimate Tudor connection top a illegitimate Stuart claim?

Diana is also a descendant of the Este House of Ferrarra. I have the genealogy somewhere (it's mentioned on wikipedia under House of Este, I believe, but I did go verify that particular line).

Of course, over a period of something like 700 years, the Estes had plenty of time to distribute their genes/blood.
