Althorp Visit

Went here in September. Finally got the pictures up.

Got the opportunity to go on a trip to Althorp. This is the location of Princess Diana’s final resting place and is her ancestral home. Her brother, Earl Spencer, currently lives there with his family. It was a visit brought together by the British American Committee. The weather was classic overcast and drizzly English rain. The tour was pleasant. The private tea time we had was wonderful. I discovered the joys of eating jam with clotted cream on a scone. We were happy to see that things were understated and the gift shop not overtly commercialized.

After seeing this house and the grounds, I can’t help but laugh when remembering that during the run up to her wedding Lady Diana was thought of as a commoner. What a different perspective on the world.
