Last month, Charles shared a ‘hauntingly beautiful’ photo of Princess Diana’s grave.

The late Princess was laid to rest at her childhood home of Althorp House, Northamptonshire in 1997, and the grave was re-dedicated by The Archbishop of Canterbury in 2017 ahead of the 20th anniversary of her death. 

Charles shared the black-and-white image with the caption: 'Love the family photographs I find here at Althorp.'

Her brother, the Earl of Spencer, shared a photo on Instagram, showing a misty morning on the island in the middle of the Round Oval Lake where his sister is buried. 

Royal fans branded it ‘hauntingly beautiful’ and thanked him for sharing it.

The Earl Spencer, 58, who was Diana’s younger brother, is a British peer, author and broadcaster. He inherited the family seat of Althorp estate on the death of his father in 1992 and lives there with his third wife, Karen, and their daughter Lady Charlotte.
