Charles shared a snap in his favourite room this week

We can’t say we blame him – the palatial library features wooden floors with three large-patterned rugs, cream walls with endless shelves of books, and a selection of armchairs and sofas for reading on, all enhanced by incredible chandeliers.

Althorp was the childhood home of Charles and the late Princess of Wales, and the Earl is now custodian of the Northamptonshire estate.

Tourist visits to Althorp have been paused over the last few months, but Charles has been sharing glimpses of the residence with his followers on social media.

The library is one of many stunning rooms at Althorp House

Last month, he posted a short video which showed the stunning surroundings of the country estate in the snow.

The light dusting gave the residence's grounds a magical air, which was 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." Another added: "I could force myself to live there, at a push," adding crying-laughing and heart emojis.
