Princess Diana's brother engaged
Prince William and Kate Middleton aren't the only aristocrats planning a wedding: William's maternal uncle, Charles Spencer, is engaged.
Earl Spencer, the younger brother of William's mother, Princess Diana, is planning a June wedding to Canadian philanthropist Karen Gordon. The couple are to marry at the Spencer family ancestral home, Althorp.
Diana was buried in 1997 on the grounds at Althorp. Her brother is perhaps best known for the eulogy he delivered at her funeral.
Spencer is a writer and former contributing correspondent to NBC, the Associated Press reported. This will be his third marriage. He was first married to former model Victoria Lockwood -- Diana and Prince Charles attended the 1989 wedding -- and they had four children before divorcing in 1997. His second marriage was to Caroline Freud, with whom he has two children. He ended a different engagement last year.
Gordon is founder and chief executive of Whole Child International.
