Lady Kitty Spencer had an unforgettable experience as she visited the Great Wall of China on Friday, revealing she went tobogganing at the famous landmark. Princess Diana’s niece shared a series of photos and a video from her day out in China, telling fans: "Something to cross off my Bucket List! What a phenomenal experience tobogganing down the Great Wall of China I will never forget this day."

The 27-year-old looked overjoyed as she stood at the Great Wall wearing a cream jumper, leggings and trainers, raising her arms in the air. Lady Kitty also shared several photos of the beautiful scenery with her 459,000 followers.

Kitty took the opportunity to explore following a trip to Beijing, where she was working as an ambassador for Bulgari. The model also had the chance to visit the Forbidden City and the Lama Temple, and couldn’t resist sharing her holiday photos on Instagram, describing the temple as "Peaceful and serene and magical". "How incredible to explore the Forbidden City, Beijing," Kitty captioned another post from her day of sightseeing.

The model’s trip to China sees her follow in the footsteps of the Queen and Prince Philip, who visited the Great Wall of China as part of their royal tour to the country in 1986 – although the monarch avoided the daring tobogganing ride! Kitty’s cousin Prince William’s sister-in-law Pippa Middleton has also toured the landmark, and went one further by running a marathon along the Great Wall, which features 5,164 steps, in 2016.

It’s been an amazing year of travel for Charles Spencer’s daughter, with her modelling career seeing her jet set around the world, spending time in Australia, Dubai, France, Italy and Russia in the last few months alone. At the end of October Kitty visited Perth to take part in Channel Seven’s annual Telethon, while her cousin Prince Harry and Meghan were also in the country as part of their 16-day royal tour.
