PRINCESS DIANA’S brother has shared a glimpse into the home they grew up at Althorp House in Northamptonshire.

Her brother Charles, 9th Earl Spencer has taken to Twitter to offer an inside look into the childhood garden. The pictures showed bushes of lilac lavender after a rain shower. Charles captioned the post: “Perked up by the rain.”
