Unlike many royals interred in prestigious churches, Diana was laid to rest on her family’s estate in Althorp, on a private island with extremely limited access. The island sits on a lake, and claims have been made that the entire burial site was rather neglected. The lake had algae, and some thought the grounds near her interment were overgrown. Recently, the entire site has been renovated. She was buried so remotely because her brother, also named Charles, feared that her body wouldn’t be safe in a public place. The uproar over Diana’s early death was unprecedented, and her brother wanted a place where Diana’s remains wouldn’t be hounded by crowds as she was in life and where her sons could mourn her privately.
