Princess Diana's brother Earl Charles Spencer has shared an incredible video of Althorp House – and royal fans have branded it "bewitching".

"Althorp waking up after last night's thunderstorm," penned Charles on Monday, alongside a clip of the magnificent estate.

It was an enchanting misty morning with the sun peering through the fog across the immaculate lawns, and the camera panned elegantly across the estate to soak up the atmosphere. It's safe to say fans couldn't believe their eyes and the wondrous sight.

Royal fans leave tributes at the house

"How utterly bewitching," wrote one, and: "I could wake up to that view any day. You are so very lucky [love heart emoji]," added another. A third commented: "Simply stunning," while a fourth said: "It's a revelation seeing just how beautiful Althorp really is [love heart emoji]."

Diana grew up in the grand family home in Northamptonshire and it is currently Charles' family home with his wife Karen and their daughter, Lady Charlotte. The Princess of Wales was even buried at the property, and there is a special temple where fans can leave their tributes.

Charles has previously shared a look at the flowers left by Diana fans on a sweet bench underneath a silhouette picture of the late Princess.

The stately home is where Diana grew up

The 500-year-old home is open to members of the public to even tour the interiors, where there is a grand library and many other stately rooms.

While the visitors are not permitted to take any photographs inside the walls, they can take photos of the exterior of the building and the glorious grounds.

Charles grew up at Althorp House with his three older sisters, and he inherited the family home when his father John died in 1992. Charles became the 9th Earl Spencer, and he has since renovated the family's ancestral seat, restoring it to its former glory.
