Charles Spencer Reveals Very Surprising Piece of Family History

Earl Spencer delighted
his fans on Thursday when he shared a brilliant, and rather unexpected piece of
family history.

Taking to his Twitter
feed, Charles shared a great “fishing feat” he and Diana’s
great-aunt, Lady Margaret Spencer, achieved 100 years ago.

Captioning a photo of what
appeared to be a newspaper clipping, the Earl penned: “Fishing feat by my
late great-aunt Margaret, from a century ago. #spencerfamily
#salmonfishing.”

The clipping explained:
“The largest salmon that has been caught on our local rivers for a very
long time fell to the rod of Lady Margaret Spencer when fishing on the Duke of
Abercorn’s preserved portion of the Mourne near The Feddans, about two miles
down from Newtownstewart…”

 According to the report,
the fish weighed a whopping 23.5 lbs and Lady Margaret used a Jock Scott fly to
secure her impressive catch.

Fans were delighted with the
update and couldn’t wait to share their reactions with the Earl.

One follower penned, “A most
impressive fish, indeed… Must’ve served up beautifully.” A second wrote:
“She sounds like quite a lady.” A third added: “Your great aunt
a fisher of fish! A fourth enthused: “That is amazing!! I can’t even do
that. I can picture her having the greatest time salmon fishing.”

Lady Margaret Spencer lived at Althorp Estate

That wasn’t the only trip down
memory lane Charles took on Thursday as he also updated his Instagram feed with
a glorious newspaper clipping that showed a childhood image of he and Princess
Diana.

In the photo, the future
Princess of Wales, who was then aged five, was playing in her toy car when her
younger brother, who was then aged two, poured sand all over it.

The scene was observed by
their parents, Lord Althorp and Viscountess Althorp, as well as their two other
children, Sarah, 11, and Jane, nine.

Captioning the photo Charles
penned: “A snapshot of family life in 1966. #terribletwos #blackandwhite
#1960s #familyphotos #spencerfamily #littlebrother #family.”

The Earl’s wife Lady Karen
Spencer replied to the adorable image writing: “So cute,” with two
red love hearts – and we completely agree!
