Althorp on Diana’s 49th Birthday Photos and News

As usual my dear friend Beth Taylor went to Althorp to lay Flowers for Diana   as she does every year for all of her overseas friends. and She took som awesome photos.  the first one was quite a shock for those of us who are visiting Althorp thru the computer screen, as it seems that the  main house is undergoing  restoration and will be that way for the next year or so.

Photos belong to Beth Taylor

Acording to Beth every thing else seems to be open such as the stables and shop.

you can still walk the grounds and make your way to the oval which is still as beautiful as the day Diana was laid to rest there. Diana did receive flowers from her two sons and their flowers were rowed across to the oval that day. It happened to be quite warm  yesterday as the tourist made their way to celebrate Diana’s birthday. it just goes to show you no matter how much  some people wish that Diana’s legacy would go away  she is still there with in the hearts of the people who loved and admired  her.
 
Thank you Bethy for sharing your photos and taking flowers for me this year.

“Iconic” Diana dress fetches $276,000 at auction

 

LONDON (Reuters) – The black taffeta dress worn by Princess Diana at her first official appearance with Prince Charles after announcing their engagement fetched 192,000 pounds ($276,000), or nearly four times the high-end estimate, at a London auction on Tuesday.

The dress, which auctioneer Kerry Taylor described as “iconic,” had been expected to sell for 30-50,000 pounds.

It was part of a collection of clothes being sold by designers Elizabeth Emanuel and David Emanuel and was bought by fashion museum the Fundacion Museo De La Moda in Chile.

“As the weeks before her wedding progressed, Diana lost so much weight that she returned the gown to the Emanuels to have it taken in,” Taylor said in a statement.

“The alterations required were so drastic that they decided it would be easier to re-make a smaller version for her. They kept the original and forgot about it — only re-discovering it quite recently.”

Overall, the 30 lots on offer fetched 282,720 pounds ($407,000).

“The high prices that we saw today reflect the enduring love affair with Princess Diana,” Taylor added.

Jorge Yarur, founder of the museum which bought the dress, said that when he died he planned to donate it and other Diana dresses he owned to Kensington Palace, where she lived from the time of her wedding in 1981 until her death in 1997.

The palace already displays a selection of Diana’s dresses in the Royal Ceremonial Dress Collection.
