Diana's maternal grandfather Edmund Roche, 4th Baron Fermoy, was a close friend of King George V. He got the Park house on lease in the 1930s from The King where Frances Roche was born - Diana's mother.

Frances married Viscount Althorp, John Spencer, in 1954 at Westminster Abbey. Their wedding was attended by the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and other members of the Royal family as guests. The couple took over the lease of the property from Frances parents. The family stayed at the Park house until 1975 when John became the Earl and moved to his seat and family home Althorp.

Lady Diana was christened at the St. Mary Magdalene Church, where Princess Charlotte was christened in 2015 and The Royal family visits every Christmas. The beach that we saw in the recent Cambridge Family video was the play ground for little Diana.



In 1983, Her Majesty the Queen gave the birthplace of Princess Diana to a charity ' Leonard Cheshire Disability' which converted the house into a hotel for disabled people. The Queen officially opened the hotel in 1987.

In 2019 the hotel closed its door for the renovation plans costing £2.3m. But due to the pandemic, the cost rose significantly and the talks of exiting the lease began in 2020 with Sandringham Estate.
