Latest reports claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge was shocked over Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer

Oh no! Is Catherine Duchess of Cambridge feuding with Princess Diana’s relatives? Well, latest reports claimed that the Duchess of Cambridge was shocked over Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer and his third wife Karen Gordon for planning to turn the Spencer family property known as Althorp Estate into a “bed and breakfast.”

LOL maybe Will but Kate? What does she have to do with the Spencers?

Just another round of Kate getting hysterical over something. She's such a chronic drama queen it's gross.

With the death of the Duke of Westminster, I started thinking about how Sarah expected to marry him someday.  I feel kind of sorry for her in that as the oldest she was expected to marry extremely well, perhaps the best of all three daughters, but as it turned out her baby sister ended up a Princess and her younger sister a Baroness while she is still Lady Sarah.

And does anybody else notice Tally looks quite a bit like Sarah? Or am I just crazy?  Cool

I oftne think the biggest mistake the Spencer family did the girls is how they instilled so much pride in them, that they felt entitled to the best and didn't know how to handle rejection in any mature way. I think Sarah was crushed big time when she 'failed' to land the Duke and frankly I think it was a little issue of lineage as well.

This is the lineage of the Dowager Duchess:

Quote
They also descend from Pushkin, the Russian author and nobleman, as well as from his African great-grandfather, Abram Petrovich Gannibal, the youth believed to have belonged to a family of tribal chieftains who became a protégé of Peter the Great.

The sisters' maternal grandmother was born Countess Anastasia de Torby (later Lady "Zia" Wernher), younger morganatic daughter of Grand Duke Michael Mihailovich of Russia (a grandson of Tsar Nicholas I) by his wife Countess Sophie von Merenberg, morganatic daughter of Prince Nikolaus of Nassau (himself brother of Adolphe, Grand Duke of Luxembourg) by his wife Natalya Aleksandrovna, Pushkin's younger daughter.[9]

Lady Zia's sister Countess Nadezhda de Torby (or "Nada") was the wife of Prince George of Battenberg (later George Mountbatten, 2nd Marquess of Milford Haven), elder maternal uncle of the Duke of Edinburgh. The Torby sisters were third cousins of the prince through their common ancestor, Tsar Nicholas I.[9] Natalia's paternal grandparents were Col. Joseph Harold John Phillips and his wife Mary Mercedes Bryce, whose niece Janet Mercedes Bryce (daughter of Major Francis Bryce of Hamilton, Bermuda) married David

I think as native born Englishwomen, they held less exotic and continental appeal than someone like Natalia and others.

Explaining how they are usually very focused on the future, she said: 'They know exactly what they want to do and what their talents are.

I do believe this is the most brainless thing for anyone to say. THIS is what happens when someone isn't raised to actually DO something with themselves. Honestly.

Give everyone an award or trophy. Tell everyone they can be whatever they want to be. Ignore the kids in the regular program and overwork the AP/IB kids in every subject. No guidance other than telling regular kids to pass their classes and the AP/IB kids that they won't get into college if they don't maintain a certain GPA. In college, you of course have to pass and do as well as possible, but you can choose a degree program that has no real career options, and oftentimes you end up hating the job your degree is for because work experience isn't part of the degree requirement. Why is this surprising that she, like so many in her generation, doesn't know what her talents are and doesn't have a sense of purpose?

Maybe it would be good for young people to be around people like these homeless who have a sense of purpose. Give them some perspective to be grateful for what they have, and help them determine their strengths and weaknesses so they can choose a career path they're both good at and enjoy. Getting to know real people in need will also help remind them to give back to the community when they do figure out their purpose and get regular jobs.

I often think that work history and experience should be more of a determining factor than a GPA from high school. Too many idiots going to college to party and think that a high GPA entitles them to a large paycheck. A lot of kids from high school have a shabby work ethic and basically think their professors should just be their guidance counselors and mentors. I found out that a former high school valedictorian from my school works as a server in a country club. Not dishonest work, but frankly, not what you would think someone with the 4.0 GPA would have been a lot more high level in regards to a career. Not being a waitress at a country club. She should be a member of the country club. Meanwhile, I graduated with a 1.72 GPA, but at this point, I run my own multi-national business and I have MAJOR additional positions as well in the high up art field. All without a degree. I do believe that a resume shows what kind of work ethic a person has and I do believe that if resumes dictated acceptance, it would eliminate a lot of time wasters that infest our education system. It would also eliminate those who basically believe that uni should be about matchmaking and partying, not studying and building actual work experience.

In the Spencer family in particular - girls were unwanted and useless.

Well, the first son inherits it all, so any child other than the first boy is useless.

I notice that Kitty's father remarried just before her 11th birthday and had two more children with this new woman. Perhaps her parents were fighting and ignored their kids? Provided for their material needs but did not offer any guidance?

Interesting that Earl Spencer's youngest daughter (from his third wife) is named Charlotte Diana Spencer and she was born three years before her first cousin once removed, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.

I know Jane will never do it but I would love for Sarah to write a book about her life. It would be interesting to read her thoughts on her childhood, the divorce of her parents, her own marriage, her daughters bout with cancer and even Diana.

  Jane,  like most people close to "the action" talks through others who write books.   Charles uses others to write his "bash Diana" books all the time.  sauer

I am not sure... the top part seems very uncomfortable like I would be nervous about something getting out...

I agree. It was almost like she lost the bet to see if she could fit into it, and she cannot.

Flesh overpouring on the top half is not a good look on anyone. And a ruby necklace would not go amiss either.

But on the good side, she isn't flashing her ......, just her overflowing bust. And that's because it's too small. She need a good tailor to let it out for her.

Haha that is so very true, a little bit too tight, esp in the upper part (personally I'd have been scared for the dress to burst tbh!), but the colour is lovely & I like her subtle makeup and I like the hair, easter-lol I'm nuts, but to me she's somehow refreshing, not a bottle blonde (sorry to any of you, no offence!), no harsh makeup, hair quite voluminous but not helmet-like, the colour of the dress plays nicely with her colouring, a pop of diamonds (earrings)... I don't know, when I saw the picture I just thought Spencer chose a beautiful wife who scrubbed up very nicely (albeit in a too tight dress, guess can't have it all!).

I agree, and on reflection a ruby necklace might be too much. But some jewels around her neck might have helped. I'm thinking of the ill fitting bust line.

But she is a refreshing change from others I have seen, too.
