Althorp has become a house known across the
world. As you walk around this house, you will see the accumulation
of paintings, furniture, porcelain and sculpture which have
appealed to the tastes of my family over generations. I hope
that beyond the art, you will also notice that Althorp is
very much a home. The exterior may be forbidding, with its
stark tiling; and the park may appear hugh and impressive;
but the inside is warm and welcoming.
Next to the house lies the honey-coloured
stable block that at one time accommodated up to 100 horses
and 40 grooms, a truly breathtaking building that is perhaps,
of greater beauty than the House itself. This is the setting
for the exhibition celebrating the life of Diana, Princess
of Wales and honoring her memory after death. The freshness
and modernity of the facilities is a unique tribute to a woman
who captivated the world in her all-too-brief existence.
Throughout her time as Princess of Wales,
Diana made a stand for causes she truely believed in. These
were often difficult issues, which others in her position
would have shunned. Yet she chose to address them honestly
By coming to Althorp, you are allowing that
work to continue, after her death, via her Memorial Fund.
All out profits go to the fund this year, as they did last.
They are then distributed to those organizations that Diana
fought for, or which, in the Trustee's opinion, she would
have championed, were she still alive.
