She’s competitive and hates to be idle
We’ve already established that Spencer is a smart woman, but she feels annoyed that people often mistake her for not having a competitive nature compared to her siblings, Lady Eliza Spencer, Lady Amelia Spencer, and Lord Louis Spencer.
She expressed her feelings on this during an interview with The Telegraph, saying, “All my siblings were sporty but I focused on the academics. People think I’m not competitive because I’m not sporty, but actually I am. I always need to be doing something; I don’t want to be idle.”
Her luxury-brand management degree is on the back burner
Spencer was born into a privileged family, which allowed her certain benefits, including the opportunity to attended private schools. But it’s also given her something more. She told Vanity Fair, “The media attention gives you the platform to speak about the things that are important to you.” And what’s important to Spencer is giving back to the community.
Vanity Fair notes that she has become involved in charitable work, most notably as an ambassador for Centrepoint, an organization that supports homeless youth. In addition to Centrepoint, she’s also involved with Give Us Time, a British organization that aids soldiers and their families as they try to adjust to life together following a deployment. As for why these charities are the ones she chose to devote her time to, Spencer told The West it’s because they “emphasise the importance of family in different ways.”
What makes Spencer’s charitable nature even more interesting is that she has a master’s degree in luxury brand management, and the two don’t really seem to go together. Although she told told the publication that she wants to put this degree to “good use,” and will likely be pursuing something within this industry at a later stage, for now, she is focusing on helping those in need.
She never, ever Googles herself
Google is a useful and informative tool for those of us who don’t live our lives in the public eye, but for celebrities, it’s also a bit of a curse. Spencer knows the dangers of researching herself and because of this, you’ll never find her typing her name into the web and clicking that little magnifying glass.
She made her feelings on the subject clear to The West. “I don’t read articles about myself, whether they are positive or negative,” she told the publication. “I don’t even look at the pictures. I don’t have Google alerts or anything like that and I obviously then don’t read any comments under any articles. I just don’t believe in entertaining any sort of negative energy in that way; I know it’s not good for the mind.”
