The landmark central London house has a place in history as it was where Princess Diana was first introduced to the al-Fayed family at a lunch party in 1996.

Diana’s stepmother, Raine Spencer, encouraged her to get to know the family, including Dodi al Fayed.

Diana went on to have a brief relationship with Dodi until they died together in a car crash in Paris in 1997. 

Since the early 2000s, the house has belonged to the founders of Pyms Gallery in Mayfair, Alan and Mary Hobart. 

The house is where Princess Diana was first introduced to the al-Fayed family at a lunch party in 1996.
