'It is indeed a large house, but designed and laid out in a way that makes it a very liveable, wonderful family home, set in beautiful mature grounds, in the county, but on the edge of the city,' she said, 'a new owner can be confident of a private setting and yet first-class airport and city accessibility too.'

Lady Fermoy sounded a note of caution when Diana and Charles first began courting, telling her: 'Darling, you must understand that their sense of humor and lifestyle are very different, and I don't think it will suit you.'
