The image showed a large display of blossom branches in a beautiful ornate vase sitting on a carved white table.

Large paintings were just visible on the walls and a marble bust stood in the left corner.

The Earl captioned the picture: "A spring flourish in the entrance hall at @AlthorpHouse today. #cherryblossom."

A third commented: "I can't wait to visit next summer," while a fourth simply wrote: "Beautiful xxx."

As well as posting photos from in and around Althorp, the father-of-seven sometimes shares previously unseen pictures of his family.

On Mother's Day earlier this month, for example, he posted a black-and-white snapshot of his late mother, Frances Shand Kydd.

In the picture, she smiled as she looked down adoringly at the sleeping baby in her arms.
