Timeshare Travel - Visit Princess Diana While You Still Can

If you’ve ever thought of seeing the Princess Diana Museum now is the time to start planning that timeshare vacation to England. By August of 2014 Lord Spencer, Diana’s older brother, intends to close the exhibition of his sister’s belongings.

Lord Spencer is acting according to Diana’s will, which specified that her personal items were to be "looked after" until her sons turned 30. Her youngest son, Harry, will be 30 next year.

Diana's family members opened the museum at their Althorp estate in 1998, a year after she died in a Paris car crash.

There are six rooms in the museum displaying a range of Princess Diana's personal artifacts including the famous bridal gown. The museum's collection also includes 28 dresses, two tiaras, priceless family jewelry, and pictures, letters and home movies.

“The exhibition has been admired by thousands of people around the world,” said a spokesperson. “It has been a wonderfully tasteful celebration of the late Diana, Princess of Wales’ life and achievements – particularly her charitable works and her glamour.”

Built in 1508, Althorp has been home to the Spencer family for nearly 500 years. There are 19 rooms in the house open to the public displaying a fine collection of furniture, pictures and ceramics.

Althorp, located in Northamptonshire, was home to Princess Diana before she joined the Royal family, and following her death in 1997 the family created the extensive museum exhibition as a memorial to reflect on her life and work.

Outside is a beautiful park and gardens where you can enjoy a picnic or alternatively eat in the café.

Althrop is also Princess Diana’s final resting place. She is buried on a small island in the middle of a lake named the Oval Lake. Visitors are not allowed on the island, but can easily view the memorial pedestal and urn from shore.

Four black swans swim in the lake symbolically guarding her grave. The water lilies in the lake are some of Diana’s favorite flowers.

There are 36 oak trees (one for every year of her life) bordering the path down to the lake.

Timeshare exchanges are available throughout England.
