Princes Diana’s grave site 18 years after her death has been pictured enveloped in flowers and foliage as her resting place has become part of the ancient landscape over time.
Althorp Estate where the late Princess is buried, said the vegetation growing over her memorial site “has always had a full growth of mature trees, which give a rich panoply of foliage in the summer”.
A spokesman said the natural growth of greenery “intentionally lends privacy to the Princess’s final resting place”.
Last year Darren McGrady, a former chef to the Queen and Princess Diana, took to Twitter to say the grave had been “neglected” and begged the estate to “tidy up the vegetation” adding: “Sad to see Earl Spencer has neglected Princess Diana’s resting place #ProveYouDidntWantHerForTheMoney.”
The estate, which visitors pay up to £18.50 to enter, is owned by Diana’s brother Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, who delivered a touching eulogy to his sister at her Westminster Abbey funeral.
Mr McGrady has today been tweeting Mr Spencer about the “overgrown” grave, urging him to get it cleaned.
Today, August 31, marks 18 years since the tragic death of Diana, who was killed in a Paris car crash after her driver lost control.
