Charles announced earlier this month that the gardens of his Northamptonshire estate will be open to the public every day in August, with free admission for NHS workers and their families. Due to the current pandemic, the shop and café will be closed but visitors are invited to bring a picnic to enjoy in the grounds.

Diana's brother has written several books about the family estate and the animals that can be found in its grounds, including Althorp: The Story of an English House, while Althorp House's official website states that black fallow deer have roamed the park since the fifteenth century.

Charles regularly shares photos and videos from his stunning home, including ones of the magnificent sunsets, the lush lawns and glistening lake, and footage of the many deer that feed from the hedgerow.

Earlier this week, he delighted his Twitter followers with a photo from inside his house, showing his two dogs, Forager and Rufus, sleeping in their beds. "Time for a new dog bed.... Forager and Rufus, now a little more than six months old," he wrote.
