Just a few days ago, on Remembrance Sunday, Charles shared another wonderful family photo on Twitter.

It isn't clear where exactly it was taken, but the rare childhood photo showed Charles and Diana standing next to each other on what looked like a beautiful summer's day.

Diana wore a pink gingham dress while her brother was dressed in blue shorts and a matching top.

The future Princess of Wales' blonde locks fell to her shoulders and her brother also had a neatly combed mane of hair.

Diana had her arm around Charles' shoulder, which prompted one of his followers to respond: "Princess Diana seemed like a caring elder sister. Always loved and never forgotten."

Others agreed, chiming in: "Lovely photo. Sibling love. God rest her soul," and: "Her legacy and influence remains and in fact gets stronger and stronger as years go by."
