After only two years of marriage, Earl Spencer fell into a coma due to a cerebral hemorrhage and stroke, and Wren remained at his bedside to help him recover.She did not call four children to take care of, this has become the point of public opinion attack, feel that she is deliberately cut off family affection, leave no stone unturned for the struggle for property pave the way.
Fortunately, her husband was nursed back to health at last, or she would have been branded “Keff”.
On Diana’s wedding day in 1981, The Earl of Spencer, in great physical pain, gave up his wheelchair and walked his daughter down the long red carpet, declaring it the proudest day of his life.
As a result of the wedding of the century, Wren also became the focus of media coverage, she became known as the “hated evil stepmother”.
At the wedding, she was not even there, sitting next to Earl Spencer, his long-divorced ex-wife, while Wren sat alone at the back of the ordinary guests with her current wife.
She was also unable to appear with The Earl of Spencer on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after the wedding.
She was humiliated when her mother, Barbara, a high-class socialite, failed to get tickets to the wedding.
After the wedding, Wren and her husband’s actions were the focus of media attention, especially after she led the renovation of the family estate.
In 1991 People magazine ran a big headline, “Who’s going to stop Ryan?”
We talked about the other noble castle before because of the high maintenance cost, many noble descendants will choose to rent the castle or open it to the public to increase their income, click here to review.
Lane did the same, first laying off workers and cutting costs, then selling tickets to the public.
The 13,000-acre (52.6 million square meter) estate has been owned by the Spencer family for more than 500 years and houses antiques of historical and research value estimated at more than $250 million.
Lane drew widespread criticism for selling many antiques below market value for a total of $15 million and replacing them with notoriously cheap furniture.In particular, she caused outrage when she took down a portrait of the first generation of spencer’s ancestors and replaced it with her own painting.
The children felt that she had sabotaged the family inheritance and used the money for pleasure.
There were even reports that she had been pushed down a flight of stairs during an altercation.
The public, on the other hand, believed that she had seduced her husband, who was weakened by a stroke, into doing exactly what he wanted.
Wren has responded to such criticism before.She said she was not short of money and had done everything her husband wanted to keep the house going.
Her friend also explains for her, emphasizing that when she falls in love with Spencer, he may not get everything he has since. The detente between Earl Spencer and his father is also due to Wren’s mediation.
But apparently no one believes that.Watching her and her husband travel lovingly and live a luxurious life, the impression of her “money worship” is even more ingrained.
On March 29, 1992, Earl Spencer died of a heart attack.He left his wife an inheritance of ￡4m and a house in Mayfair alone.
Just two days later, Wren was evicted from althorp manor by her younger son Charles, who inherited her father’s title and fortune, and ordered that she be allowed to take nothing without proof of purchase.
After so many years of conflict.She was carrying a LV suitcase to pack her clothes, but it was confiscated because of the letter S printed on the suitcase, and she had to use black garbage bags to pack her clothes.
In the minds of the public, Ryan must have been discomfited and depressed.But when she was photographed at her husband’s funeral, she remained radiant and smiled blankly.
