Charles Spencer is continuing the work of honoring his late sister, the Princess of Wales. Spencer took to Instagram to announce that English Heritage has decided to place a blue plaque outside Coleherne Court.

The London flat was the place that Princess Diana called home together with other flatmates during the time she worked as a nanny and nursery school teacher in her late teens. 

The Princess of Wales's brother could not hide his elation at the honorary plaque being placed at Coleherne Court as it is a way in which the good in the royal's life can be maintained. Spencer shared on Twitter: 

"How very lovely that this blue plaque will be going up outside Coleherne Court - thank you, ⁦@EnglishHeritage⁩, for commemorating such a very happy place for Diana..."



The special plaque will form part of the more than 900 other plaques around London that point toward the places where people who have made an impact throughout history have lived through the years. 

Princess Diana's former mother-in-law remembered her for her dedication towards charity work and mentioned the royal's strong character.

English Heritage's curatorial director, Anna Eavis, said that the organization predicts that Princess Diana's plaque will draw many visitors who want to be part of the culturally rich memory of the royal. 



English heritage also took to social media to announce the exciting placement of the newest blue plaque. They paid tribute to the Princess of Wales and remembered the work that she accomplished in her lifetime. They wrote

"In what would've been her 60th year her plaque will mark one of the buildings associated with her life before marriage..."

The plaque will serve to preserve a piece of Princess Diana's life that was so important to her and carried many joyous memories ensuring that her life in its entirety is remembered. 



Beyond the historical sign put up outside her old abode, Princess Diana is also commemorated by her children and grandchildren on the special days that they miss her the most. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton's daughter, Princess Charlotte, remembered her late grandmother on Mother's Day this year by writing her a heartfelt note on a handmade card that shared how much she was missed by her son. 


After her death in August 1997, various royal family members have made an effort to ensure that Princess Diana's memory lives on. Queen Elizabeth II's moving speech a few days after the death remains one of the most moving tributes. 

Princess Diana's former mother-in-law remembered her for her dedication towards charity work and mentioned the royal's strong character despite having faced great adversity. The Queen also said that she was a wonderful mother.
