WEB DESK: Princess Diana’s childhood house has been turned into a bed-and-breakfast place but a very expensive one.
Weekend visits run $40,000 per couple sharing a bedroom, and $250,000 for a group of 18. The move came by Earl Charles princess Diana’s brother. The 500-year-old, 90-room estate of Althrop is located in Northampton shire, England and spans over 13,000 acres.
Home which has been for Spencer family since 1500s and it is also Princess Diana’s burial place.
In an interview with NBC, Earl Charles said he decided to open his ancestral home for overnight visits for the first time after his American wife, Countess Karen Spencer, came up with the idea as a way to raise funds for Whole Child International, the charity she founded in 2004.
Momentous and impressive guest of this house includes Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev and lots of kings and queens. Guest will be able to share dinner with Earl Charles and the Countess, sleep in huge bed rooms including King William’s Bedroom where Princess took rest when visited.
According to foreign media reports, the charity donors who contribute £17,000 ($25,000) will spend the weekend in a ‘beautifully appointed’ en-suite room and join other donors for a weekend of ‘entertainment and conversation’ that includes a black-tie dinner on the Saturday night.
Those who contribute £25,000 ($40,000) will enjoy the same activities but stay in a ‘premium’ bedroom.
With a donation of £175,000 ($250,000), the Spencers will host a private weekend for a couple and up to 16 of their friends.
