You Can Spend the Night in Princess Diana's Childhood Home
Travel like a royal.
It was recently announced that Althrop, Princess Diana's childhood home and final resting place, will open to overnight visitors for three weekends in an effort to raise money for the Whole Child International charity. The Princess's brother, Earl Spencer, shared the announcement on NBC News, stating that couples will be able to spend the weekend at the 500-year-old mansion for £17,000—that's about $24,879.
The home is open to the public, but overnight guests will have access to previously closed areas of the house. They will also have the option of sleeping in Princess Diana's room. The home will also be available to private groups of 18 people for £170,000 ($248.803) to split. Take about a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
If you'd like to get a look at the home without spending a cent, Cynthia McFadden of NBC's On Assignment will take viewers on an intimate tour—including the gallery photographed above—of the mansion on Sunday, May 29th.
