The Earl often provides glimpses of the family estate on social media

Charles is custodian of Althorp, which has been in the Spencer family for hundreds of years.

He updated fans on two sweet new additions to the property last week, when he revealed that they had kindly taken in some orphaned lambs.

Charles posted a short clip of two small lambs, which showed one of them snacking on the grass while the other walked around and "Baa"-ed a few times.

Charles captioned the video: "Orphaned lambs Lucky and Minty, enjoying their new, safe, life."
