There was a new addition to the scenery, however – a light dusting of snow which gave the residence's grounds a magical air, enhanced by a deep pink sunrise.

Charles captioned the lovely video: "A glorious sight this morning," and his followers were quick to agree.

One responded: "Brilliant footage... It was an unbelievable light show. Snow could be coming our way!"

The Earl shared the breathtaking scene on social media 

They wrote: "Ah, so lovely. Thank you for all your tweets. With not being able to get out and about at the moment, it’s like having outdoors, indoors."

Another fan teased: "I could force myself to live there, at a push," adding crying-laughing and heart emojis.

This isn't the first time the Earl has shared video and photos of the beautiful grounds of Althorp House.

He often posts short snippets that show off the local wildlife.

Last autumn, he posted a snap of the immense lake at the country estate, showing six swans gliding along the calm water.

"So peaceful thank you for sharing," one Twitter user replied, while another agreed: "Nice and quiet there... just perfect. Lovely photo as usual!"

A third posted: "Such a joyful capture! The water is so still; a happy family of ducks gliding on shimmering glass."

Charles, who is the younger brother of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, inherited Althorp House from his father and continues to live at the Northamptonshire estate with his wife Karen and their eight-year-old daughter, Lady Charlotte Diana Spencer.
