Since the death of Diana's father in 1992 Earl Charles Spencer has redecorated more than 50 rooms. Although the room is hung with outstanding paintings by Reynolds, Gainsborough and Batoni and houses some ornate French furniture, it manages to retain an atmosphere of comfort and accessibility. The double portrait over the fireplace shows a cherubic Georgiana Spencer, later the celebrated 1st Duchess of Devonshire, with her mother.
