The history buff and best-selling author is always digging up gems from his family's past and even finding vintage pictures that show a connection between his lineage and the British royal family. But in addition to all of this, the 9th Earl Spencer was also the younger brother of Princess Diana—so every once in a while, he shares a rare photo of the late princess or some aspect of her past.
This week, Spencer posted an antique pic of Althorp House, which is his current residence and the teenage home of the Princess of Wales. Spencer captioned the post, “The Old Breakfast Room, at @althorphouse, in 1892 - the year in which my grandfather Jack Spencer was born.”
Spencer's photo is rare for a specific reason, which he explained, saying, “This room no longer exists, its main wall being pulled down to join it to its neighbouring Raphael Room.”
