For such a beloved figure, it’s not surprising that many people are still asking, where is Princess Diana buried? The exact location of Diana’s grave has never been revealed, but it lies at the center of the Spencer family’s 500-year-old ancestral Althorp Estate. The estate spans nearly 13,000 acres of lush Northamptonshire countryside, about 75 miles outside London.
At the time of her death, Diana’s brother Earl Charles Spencer explained it would be her final hope for peace in a secluded location away from the world’s prying eyes. In July, Prince William, Kate Middleton, and Prince Harry, along with Prince George and Princess Charlotte, attended a private service conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury to rededicate her grave.

Meanwhile, it’s been announced that the Oval Lake will have an extensive multi-million-dollar redesign to honor her memory, expected to be completed in time for the 20th anniversary of her death. Since she was laid to rest, 36 oak trees were planted to mark each year of her life, along with hundreds of white water lilies and roses.
Unfortunately, in a recent interview, Diana’s brother Charles revealed that there have been four separate occasions where trespassers have tried to rob the People’s Princess’ grave. Speaking to BBC Radio 4, the 53-year-old said, “We’ve had four attempted break-ins towards her body in the last 20 years and I’m very glad we’ve seen all of them off. There are some odd people out there and keeping her right here is the safest place.” It is believed that people are trying to take break in to sell photos of the gravesite.
