Princess Diana's wedding was the stuff of fairy tales. Now her ancestral home is throwing open its doors for all and sundry to say their marriage vows.

The Althorp House estate - where the Princess of Wales is buried - has been opened up by her brother, Earl Spencer, for weddings, private parties and corporate events.

The venue is certain to become a hit with celebrities and wealthy businessmen. The Earl turned down a request by Madonna to have her wedding to Guy Ritchie there in 2000, saying it was too complicated to arrange.


But now anyone with a budget of £50,000 will be able to tie the knot in the room where the Earl married his wife Caroline, then spend the night in the bedroom where Diana once slept with Prince Charles.

The news will fuel accusations that Earl Spencer is cashing in on Diana's memory. Last month The Mail on Sunday revealed he had gone into partnership with a US firm to sell reproductions of Althorp furniture, with several items marketed as coming from the Princess of Wales's bedroom.

Last year he began renting out Althorp House's private bedrooms to rich American Express cardholders at £1,000 a night. Wedding parties will be able to have pictures taken in front of "Diana's Temple", the former summerhouse beside the lake where the Princess was buried on an island.

Hospitality organiser Andrea Fowkes Associates is organising weddings at Althorp. All her stately home venues are advertised as available for '*beep* weddings' or civil partnerships through her firm's partners, Fabulous *beep* Weddings.

It will be the first time Althorp has hosted functions since Diana's death in 1997. At the launch of the new venture, the Earl said it would "offer the very best of British history and tradition, the finest cuisines and a very high level of discreet yet friendly service".

It's a nice experience to have a wedding there...... as it has been years that Diana is resting there and maybe she is feeling lonely and would like to see people around? Shocked But what good does it to her while her soul rest there seeing happy married couples walking by when her own marriage was a disaster.......

I felt her brother should have been more sensitive to that. I believe she suffer enough in life, let her rest in peace in death and not always constantly have to be remind of how once her marriage used to be a good but eventually turn bad......

I think that the late Diana's family is really making it easy for her memory and her own name to come across as badly. Really bad like cheap and greedy. Earl Spencer should know better than to do this for money but he does not care or so it seems. The late Diana deserves better than this for her memory. This has got to make Prince Harry and Prince William a tough time to handle their emotions and mental health about their mother's death.Not to mention the English public. Obviously it shows that the Spencer family is no good for the Princes. I wouldn't blame Princes Harry and William if they did not do much with the Spencer family. I know it's not all of the Spencers but they are not doing anything to stop the Earl. How Sad!!

I know this might sound cruel and it might be a misjudgement but i get the impression that Wills and Harry just don't care Sad
