well not according to some reports.. Fellowes worked for the queen and was loyal to her and it is said that Jane Fellowes was in a cleft stick between her husband and her family/sister.
And in laws are often not that close to their families..
I don't say that there is "animosity" as such but I don't think relations are too close.
I don't believe the Spencers have all much to do with even Harry and William, nowadays,much less with the queen.
But I don't udnerstand the rededication of the grave. its consecrated, its hallowed ground. if they wanted to have a prayer service by the grave every years on say Di's birthday that's what some people would do.. but I have not heard of this happening.. so I'm not sure why it is happening now with a rededication service...

Perhaps they are moving her to another location on the island, with smart new reconstructed surroundings, gravestone etc. (You know what my beliefs are regarding her body's true location anyway, don't you, Denville?) Anyway, if she's been moved, even slightly, that would require a re-hallowing/dedication.

It's happening because her sons wanted it. It's something they wanted to do as their way to honor their mother. It doesn't need to be anymore than that and it certainly isn't worth others to question or criticize.

I certainly hope not. I don't believe it, I think that her body is where it was laid, as was thogtht right at the time. Unless there is a very good reason, I think it is wrong to disturb someone's resting place. I don't know why they are publicising this anyway, If they do want a clergyman to say prayers and for htem to have service at her graveside, that is a private matter and ther'es no need to tell the world about it. they could have had a service there every year at her birthday, if they wished.. I don't believe they have.. but it is something that could have happened on a regular basis without telling the world about it.

I hope this the correct place to put this link to another upcoming tv special in memory of Diana.

Princess Diana's Brother Charles Spencer to Tell Her Story in People's Special

In regards to comments about W&H and their closeness to the Spencer's. Last year, Harry did attend his cousin George's wedding. I recall Harry and George, as children, looking quite similar with their red hair and similar hair cut.

I'm slightly surprised we haven't seen any arrival pics from today's service. I supposed some photographers woudl go stand at the gates of Althorp.
I hope this is out of respect for the family, who will have an undoubtly emotional service ahead of them.

They might, just might have gone there earlier than anyone expected them to, had a morning service at Althorp House, gone to the island, had brunch and then departed. Perhaps photographers expected an afternoon arrival?

Anyway, I've been remembering Diana on what would have been her 56th birthday, and all the good, bright and wonderful things about her. I hope the pain of her loss was not too bad for her sons yesterday (Aus time.)

if they had not released this information, there would be no risk of photographers.. though its seems as if nobody has been looking around..

The whole estate has been closed though, and as I said, no-one knew when the party was going to arrive. They could all have stayed at Althorp overnight for all we know, though I don't think it likely.

Here's info on the rededication, and also refurbishment of Diana's gravesite and Althorp gardens:

Thank you for posting these MaiaMia. I'll certainly keep an eye out for the documentary. I've been thinking of her on her birthday and going over some memories I have of her.

Was shown overseas earlier this year.

A trailer has apparently come out for a documentary to be shown later this month in which Diana's sons remember her and show some never before seen photos of their mother. They describe her as full of fun, the 'naughtiest of parents' and one who 'smothered us with love, that's for sure!' Others that have never spoken of Diana before will also appear in this documentary. So looking forward to this!

I can't wait to see it either. I've been waiting so long for the real insight into Diana from her actual loved ones. For 20 years we've been getting endless opinions from people who had a for profit agenda about her and they helped shape a great deal of false narratives that people ran with for so long.

Her two sons will tell you who Diana really was a d it will be the truth.

Will it be the 'whole truth' though or simply their version of the truth? How they saw and interacted with their mother during school holidays - and that is when they saw her once they turned 8 - for six weeks a year - won't be the same as someone who had to work for her, or live with her day in day out.

This will simply be a pro-Diana talkfest from her sons which the Diana fans will love, and use to show how they have turned against their father as he won't get a mention no doubt - other than to say how sad 'mummy' was with Papa.

No one version is ever the entire truth as any decent historian will tell you as all are biased - and this will be no different - a very pro-Diana piece from her sons. Competent people will see it for what it is while the Diana fans will see it as justification for their ongoing hatred of Charles and hopes that he will die soon.

I would rather hear and watch Diana's sons talk about her than some so-called Royal historian or insider who was previously employed by the RF or some tabloid writer blatantly making things up but pretending information in an article is 'supposedly' true from 'known' friends or sources.

Well that's kinda weird to say Bertie...I mean anytime someone gives their side of things it's their version of the truth.
