Princess Diana's brother Charles Spencer has once again delighted fans with a photo of the beautiful grounds at his home. While the author usually shares pictures of his immaculate gardens, on Sunday, Charles posted a snap of the immense lake at his glorious country estate, Althorp House.

Six swans were pictured gliding along the calm water, leaving Charles to reference the popular The Twelve Days of Christmas carol and joke: "Six swans."

Despite the current climate, it's a time of celebration for the Earl and his family. Charles, who has six older children from his two previous marriages, is set to walk his daughter Amelia down the aisle when she marries her long-term partner Greg Mallett.

The couple announced their engagement over the summer and Amelia later told HELLO! in an exclusive interview: "The day Greg proposed was the most romantic day of my life. He has been my best friend for 11 years and everything about him makes me feel like the luckiest person in the world."

The bride-to-be, 28, described her oval diamond ring as perfection, saying: "I never told Greg what kind of ring I wanted, I just knew the ring he gave me would be perfect and he somehow designed the ring of my dreams."
