Charles Spencer leaves royal fans gushing with ‘precious’ childhood photo of Diana

NewsCharles Spencer leaves royal fans gushing with ‘precious’ childhood photo of Diana


A photo shared by the Earl shows his family playing and it looks like Diana and Charles had a relationship that many siblings could relate to. The photograph, displayed in an old newspaper clipping, shows the future Princess of Wales, who was then aged five, playing in her toy car when her younger brother, then aged two, poured sand all over it.

The scene was observed by their parents, Lord Althorp and Viscountess Althorp, as well as their two other children, Sarah, 11, and Jane, nine.

His followers were thrilled with the photo, with many excited to see the picture of a young Princess Diana, as many lamented “Diana,” alongside heart emojis.

One of the fans Jacquettaeliot commented on his instagram post in a humorous way: “terribletwos.”

Another user Corneliasnyman wrote: “Precious.”

A third user Rammskywalker commented: “Aww it’s such a great picture.. Simpler times.”

Another user Coudremode said: “The look on Diana’s face is priceless. Sweet and indulgent but also ‘Oh Charles…..”

A fifth user Agathaslibrary commented: “Diana not impressed with the sand.”

Earlier this year, Charles shared a striking black-and-white photo of the 550-acre property from the 1800s, and shared that an old wing of the building no longer exists.

In his caption, he explained: “In the 19th century Althorp briefly had a billiard room / extra library – the additional wing is visible towards the left of this photograph.”

Although the Earl frequently shares insights into his home, Althorp Estate, he is more reserved with his family photos, but last week he left fans stunned when he shared a photo of the Queen.

Demonstrating the long connection between the Spencer family and the royals, the black-and-white shot showed the Queen back in 1946 when she was still Princess Elizabeth.

She wore a smart skirt suit as she walked in front of a row of soldiers, with another soldier accompanying her and a man in a suit behind them.

The photo was shared to social media by a royal fan and re-shared by the Earl, who revealed that the man in the suit was his grandfather, Jack Spencer.

The original caption read: “HRH Princess Elizabeth inspects troops at Northampton’s Spencer parade in 1946. HRH is closely followed by The 7th Earl Spencer.”

Charles added: “Love this – my grandfather Jack Spencer to the left, in suit. He’d served (and been wounded) in the First World War.”
