Blood Royal By John Pearson

Blood Royal tells the Story of the Spencers and their relationship with the Royal family through history. I read this book in one day the amount of history in this book is awesome although the chapters are fairley brief. The fascinating tale of each generation’s task of keeping Althorp for the future Spencers was enough to hold your attention . The tale of Diana’s stepmother redecorating the century old house was really interesting it really needed 2 more chapters on that subject. Diana’s legacy entered at the end of the book her marriage to Prince Charles forever changed her family’s legacy and fufilled one of thier ancestors biggest goals. Her burial at the estate has helped cement her brother’s legacy as the ninth Earl as well and provide her family home some income for its upkeep. I really enjoyed the book as well as all the little fascianting tidbits about the family and the estate. If you can locate a copy of this rare book on the family be sure to grab it. Rating: A
