Lady Di's Brother Names New Baby in Her Honour

Earl Spencer - the brother of Lady Diana who gave an emotional speech at her funeral laying blame at the feet of the Royal family - has named his new baby daughter after his late sister.

Lady Charlotte Diana Spencer was born a week ago at Althorp, the family’s ancestral home in Northamptonshire, weighing 8lb 4oz.

The baby’s mother is the Earl’s third wife, Karen, a Canadian philanthropist and former model whom he married last year.

The Earl described his new daughter as “another feisty little Spencer girl,” the Mail on Sunday reported.

He said: "We hadn't settled on a first name before the birth, but Charlotte is a name we both loved, and it really suits her. We knew that as soon as we saw her. And though it's been 15 years since Diana died, I still miss her every day and I wanted her commemorated in the naming of our daughter."

Diana died 15 years ago at the end of this month.
