LONDON (Reuters) - Earl Spencer, brother of the late Princess Diana, was divorced on Friday by his second wife Caroline on the grounds of his “unreasonable behaviour”.
District Judge Kenneth White granted the decree nisi as one of a list of 30 marriages brought to an end in a brief hearing at a London court.
Earl Spencer, 42, married Caroline at his ancestral home, Althorp Park, in December 2001. They have two children.
His marriage to his first wife, former model Victoria Lockwood ended in divorce after six years in 1996.
At Diana’s funeral in 1997, he famously threw down the gauntlet to the royal family when he vowed in his oration that Diana’s “blood family” would ensure her sons Princes William and Harry were not wrapped in the straitjacket of court tradition.
