Diana's gravesite can be found on an island at the center of the Althorp Estate – a stately home in the town of Northampton, United Kingdom, located about 70 miles from London. The Estate is owned by the Spencer family, one of England's oldest and most illustrious aristocratic families. (Another prestigious member of the Spencer family? Former Prime Minister Winston Churchill).

The Althorp Estate was built in 1508, and spans about 13,000 acres surrounding its walled 500-acre park. The grounds were originally masterminded 350 years ago by King Louis XIV’s principal gardener André Le Nôtre – the designer of the gardens of Versailles.
