    Princess Diana's brother Earl Spencer and his wife Karen Spencer are opening the Althorp family home for guests to stay a couple of nights in order to raise money for orphanages around the world, NBC News reported.

    Diana grew up in the 500-year-old mansion with a priceless art collection, 88 fireplaces and bedrooms named for the royalty who slept there, and Althorp also serves as her final resting place.

    Wannabe aristocrats willing to pay between $25,000 and $40,000 to stay in the 100,000-square-foot home about 75 miles north of London. For $250,000, a group of up to 18 people can take over the stately spread.

    Proceeds will benefit the Whole Child organization, which worked with or advised 85 orphanages in Nicaragua and is undertaking a new project in El Salvador that will involve 365 children's centers.
