This week on Instagram, the Earl shared a look inside his home, writing: ‘In a quiet corner of the library at @althorphouse – in fact above a pastel from my childhood – I have just picked up leather-bound copies of the eight books I have written so far (another one is on the way).

“I don’t expect future generations to read them, but hopefully their handsome spines will blend gently in this most beautiful room.”

The sketch shows a young red-haired boy with delicate facial features that closely resemble those of his cousin Prince Harry, 37.

About the likeness, one follower wrote: “I see Princes George and Harry in this picture,” while another added: “Harry is the spitting image.”

About the likeness, one follower wrote: “I see Princes George and Harry in this picture,” while another added: “Harry is the spitting image.”

Another agreed, writing: ‘What a lovely room. I actually thought it was a young photo of Prince Harry,” and one wrote: “You and Harry are twins!”.

‘I see Princes George and Harry in this picture,’ said one and another added: the pastel of yours also resembles Prince Harry’.

Earl posts on Instagram and Twitter – where he has a combined 21,800 followers – show how he passed the time with early morning walks.

While the house itself offers plenty of room to roam, the family also has 550 acres of land to explore.

Althorp has 500 years of art and family relics and is the final resting place of Princess Diana.

Earl Spencer has previously said that the estate’s 20,000 annual visitors can be divided into two distinct groups: those who are interested in looking at the house, and others who come to pay their respects to his late sister.

The aristocrat made headlines when he revealed that he would likely follow the male primogeniture custom, a custom in which titles, as well as stately homes, are inherited by the eldest son.

It means Althorp will likely be passed on to stage student Viscount Louis Spencer, 25, rather than one of his three older daughters.

Earl Spencer also has four children with his first wife, Lady Kitty Spencer, Lady Eliza Spencer, Lady Amelia Spencer, Louis Spencer, Viscount Althorp, and two children with his second wife, Edmund Spencer and Lady Lara Spencer.
