- Hyde Park Memorial fountain gets Spencer and Windsor lift-off
THE SPENCERS and the Windsors will come together today for the first time since the funeral of Princess Diana for the opening of the Diana Memorial Fountain in Hyde Park.
In the intervening seven years, bad blood has been spilt by the two families stemming from the funeral itself in which Earl Spencer, Diana's brother, appeared to part-blame the royal family for Diana's death.
Nevertheless, the Earl will be there today, along with his supposed nemesis Prince Charles and Princes William and Harry.
It is believed the Queen will make a conciliatory speech before she unveils a plaque on the fountain, an impressive oval affair that cost UKP3.6 million to build.
