Since the early 16th century, England’s sprawling Althorp Estate has served as the seat of the Spencer family, an influential line of dazzling duchesses; passionate bibliophiles; and, perhaps most famously, the late Princess Diana, who moved to Althorp as a young teenager and lived there until her marriage to Prince Charles. Now, reports Simon de Bruxelles for the Telegraph, an unexpected discovery suggests the Northamptonshire estate was occupied by Neanderthals long before it became the seat of a fascinating aristocratic family.

Princess Diana's Childhood Home Has A Bridgerton Connection

There’s more to Shonda Rhimes’s Netflix series Bridgerton than sex, intrigue, and amazing period clothing. There was also the Regency England-era gorgeousness of Bridgerton House itself to lust after. The opulent mansion was the perfect backdrop for Daphne and her Bridgerton siblings to lounge around on fainting couches or play the piano or simply walk and talk, their one true passion. And it seems that particular house has a Princess Diana connection. According to Bridgerton creator Chris Van Dusen, Bridgerton House was inspired by none other than Althorp House, the 16th century childhood estate where Princess Diana spent her teen years. And what’s more, Princess Diana’s brother Charles, Earl Spencer, was delighted to find out the news.
