Taking to Instagram this week, the Earl shared a glimpse inside his home, writing: ‘In a quiet corner of the Library at @althorphouse – above a childhood pastel of me, in fact – I’ve just placed leather-bound copies of the eight books I’ve written so far (another is on its way). 

‘I don’t expect future generations to read them, but hopefully their handsome spines will blend in gently, in this most beautiful of rooms.’

Another agreed, writing: ‘What a lovely room. I actually thought that was a young picture of Prince Harry’, and one wrote: ‘You and Harry are twins!’.

‘I see princes George and Harry in this photo’, one said and another added:  The pastel of you also looks like Prince Harry’.

Earl posts on Instagram and Twitter – where he boasts a combined 21,800 followers – show how he has been passing the time with early morning strolls.

While the house itself offers plenty of room to roam around, the family also has 550 acres of land to explore.

Althorp boasts 500 years worth of art and family relics and is the final resting place of Princess Diana.

Earl Spencer has previously said that the 20,000 annual visitors to the estate can be divided into two distinct groups – those who are interested in looking at the house, and others who come to pay their respects to his late sister.

The aristocrat made headlines when he revealed he is likely to follow the practice of male primogeniture, a custom in which titles, as well as stately homes, are inherited by the eldest son.

It means Althorp will likely be passed on to drama student Viscount Louis Spencer, 25, rather than to any of his three older daughters.

Earl Spencer also has four children with his first wife, Lady Kitty Spencer, Lady Eliza Spencer, Lady Amelia Spencer, Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and two children with his second wife, Edmund Spencer and Lady Lara Spencer.
