The Honeysuckle Tiara The Honeysuckle Tiara It’s not quite as fairy tale princess as the other Spencer tiara. The older of the two tiaras, it has been in the Spencer family since at least 1885. It looks heavy, and the feather motif along the top seems a bit, well spike-y, while the bottom is quite angular and harsh and doesn’t quite ‘go’ with the top. It almost seems like two tiaras, doesn’t it? All in all, we can see why Diana chose the other tiara to wear at the wedding and at later ‘tiara events’. The other tiara just looks more wearable. Here’s another view of the tiara before it was altered to its current state: In the picture above, there are large round diamonds along the bottom which are not in the first picture In the picture above, there are large round diamonds along the bottom
The Spencer Tiaras While she was Princess of Wales, Diana Spencer was often seen wearing her family’s Spencer tiara, and we were fascinated to learn a few years ago that the Spencer family owns another tiara in addition to this famous piece. The Spencer Tiara Here’s the Spencer tiara that we all know well. It joined the Spencer family when Lady Sarah Spencer gave it to Lady Cynthia Hamilton on Lady Cynthia’s marriage to Viscount Spencer (Albert) in 1919. In 1922 Viscount Spencer inherited the earldom (he was the 7th Earl Spencer) and The Earl and Countess lived at the family seat, Althorp. They had two children, one of whom became the father of Diana who would later marry Prince Charles. Here’s a picture of Lady Cynthia on the left (portrait by by John Singer Sargent), and her grandda
A Fight Over Princess Diana’s Dresses Controversy and drama continue to surround Princess Diana, even so many years after her death, as a fight has broken out over ownership of a collection of her beautiful and historical dresses. Maureen Rorech Dunkel bought 13 of Princess Diana’s dresses for $700,000 just a few weeks before her unexpected death back in 1997, and now the fate of 5 of those dresses is in dispute. It’s all very tangled and twisted but apparently Dunkel had some financial difficulties and took out a series of loans — to the tune of $1.5 million — from HRH Ventures LLC and used the dress collection as security. Dunkel has since defaulted on payment and recently filed for bankruptcy, but Patricia C. Sullivan (manager for HRH Ventures) is seeking ownership of 5 of the 13

Princess Diana's Charm Bracelet Each year for the first ten years of their marriage he gave her a different charm to add to the bracelet. In 1982 and 1984 he gave her a gold W and H to mark the births of their sons William and Harry. Other charms he bought her included a pair of ballet shoes because Diana had once dreamed of becoming a ballet dancer, a tennis racquet, as tennis was her favourite sport ; a polo cap to represent his love of Polo ; a miniature St Pauls Cathedral for where they married ; a bear for her love of teddy bears ; an apple to represent her love of Manhattan and finally a pig which he must have given her as a private joke.
Tender Prince Harry just like mum Caring Prince Harry shows he has inherited his mother Princess Diana’s tender touch by cuddling a baby on a hospital visit yesterday. The 25-year-old prince gazed down and smiled at seven-week-old Jean-Luc Jordan at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados. His warm gesture was an echo of Diana holding a sick tot at a Red Cross clinic in Angola, during her anti-landmines mission to the African country in January 1997. Harry is mid-way through a three-day visit to Barbados, in the Caribbean, where he will play in a charity polo match for impoverished children in Lesotho, Africa. Today he will attend a garden party, followed by a music concert and fundraising dinner in the evening in aid of earthquake victims in Haiti.
