School reports are scrutinised, university admissions discussed at length and she even keeps performance charts for three-year-old Charlotte, peppered with stick-on gold stars.
Insiders say Lady Spencer is very wary of Wife No 2, Caroline ‘Pidge’ Freud.
He and Karen wed at Althorp in June 2011, ten months after they met, and friends this week used such phrases as ‘mutually trusting’, ‘touchy feely’ and ‘still immensely passionate’ to describe their union.
She also fell heavily behind on her taxes several years on the trot.
She insists she wasn’t intimidated to move into Althorp.
The earl, who rarely does an interview without mentioning his sister, tells People that his wife is a ‘natural fighter, very headstrong and stubborn’, adding: ‘Like Diana, she gets her hands dirty with causes that other people might quickly walk away from.’The renovations, which include turning Princess Diana’s somewhat neglected island into a garden that her brother describes as ‘unbelievably beautiful and appropriate’, are due to be finished by August next year, the 20th anniversary of her death.
Despite refusing her sanctuary at Althorp following her divorce from Prince Charles because of the ‘disruption’ he said it would cause, Earl Spencer has been making money off his sister’s memory since her death, although he also makes donations to the memorial fund set up in her name.
The former Karen Villeneuve has taken on the management of the 13,000-acre Northamptonshire estate and, as chatelaine of the childhood home and final resting place of Princess Diana, she is overseeing a major renovation project that will include a new memorial for the princess on the island where she is buried. If it’s survived previous generations of Spencer children, I’d like to think my three-year-old won’t destroy it!
