Princess Diana’s Childhood Home Is Ready for Christmas — See the Giant 25-Foot Tree!
Princess Diana’s brother Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, has opened up his family home at the most wonderful time of the year.
Spencer installed a magnificent 25-ft. tree dominating the Saloon, which boasts Althorp House’s main staircase. It’s “the largest tree we’ve ever had here,” he tweeted Wednesday.
Spencer, 53, and his wife Karen, the founder of Whole Child International, are expecting to host a large family celebration over the holidays.
The towering tree was unveiled as the cameras for a local TV station caught the finishing touches being made to the laying of a grand new carpet. Made in Nepal, it features a design by Countess Spencer, who chose an “S” topped with the Earl’s coronet and the couple’s initials on each side.
The date of the couple’s 2011 wedding is also there, Spencer explained to the BBC’s Look East show, along with the names of our “extraordinary” number of nine children, he said.”Hopefully for 150-200 years it will commemorate the family that was living here now.”
