Earl Spencer has said that the 20,000 yearly visitors to the Real Estate can be broken into two different groups – those that are considering taking a look at the home, and many others that have come to pay their respects to his husband.

The aristocrat made headlines earlier this year after he revealed he’s very likely to stick to the custom of male primogeniture, a habit where names, in addition to stately houses, are inherited by the eldest son. 

This means Althorp will probably be passed on to play student Viscount Louis Spencer, 25, instead of to some of the three older brothers.
