Taking to Twitter, the Earl posted a beautiful vista of a patch of land which was covered with daffodils blowing in the wind under a row of trees – how lovely!

The estate has been in the Spencer family for 500 years

Charles is custodian of Althorp, which has been in the Spencer family for hundreds of years.

He often updates his followers on changes to the outside and inside of the property, and earlier in the week, the father-of-seven gave a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the interior of the residence, which was sporting a new look.

Charles shared a photo to Twitter which 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."

His followers soon complimented the latest addition, with one replying: "That’s beautiful! It’s perfect with that vase."

Another agreed, responding: "Pretty little cherry blossoms sir, and loving the table and vase." A third commented: "I can't wait to visit next summer," while a fourth simply wrote: "Beautiful xxx."
