Dignity for Diana at last: Princess’s grave to be overhauled after ‘neglect’ complaints

8 May

Since her father’s death in 1992, the estate has been operated by Diana’s younger brother Charles, the ninth Earl Spencer, who delivered the moving eulogy at her funeral.


Dating back to 1508, the estate also features 38 oak trees that were planted to symbolise every year of Diana’s life.

Hundreds of white roses and white water lilies were also planted after her death.

An exhibition entitled Diana: A Celebration ran at Althorp from 1998, featuring hundreds of her personal possessions and clothing, including her spectacular royal wedding dress, designed by David Emanuel, with all profits going to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Fund.
