Exhibit on Diana, Princess of Wales, to Close at Althorp House


Royal fans in England will want to get to the Diana Museum at Althorp House: The Telegraph is reporting that Earl Spencer, the younger brother of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, will close down the exhibition next year and hand over its contents to his nephews, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

A spokesman for Charles Spencer, who took the show, Diana: A Celebration, on tour to America, announced that the exhibit would close in August 2014.

The collection includes 28 of Diana’s dresses, two tiaras and other family jewels as well as pictures, letters and home movies, according to the Telegraph. Lord Spencer says Diana’s will stated that her belongings were to be “looked after” by him until both of her sons turned 30, at which point the contents would transfer into their possession. Prince Harry will be 30 next year. 

But there's hope: The closure of the museum means that Diana’s clothes and other belongings may go on display at Kensington Palace, where she lived until her death and where her eldest son and daughter-in-law will move this year after the birth of Diana's first grandchild in the summer.
