Earl Spencer Shares Special Clip of Rarely Seen Family Member

Charles Spencer delighted
fans as he took to social media to mark his late grandmother, Cynthia
Spencer’s, 125th birthday.

On Twitter, the bother
of Princess Diana shared the sweetest clip as he beamed about his
grandmother who appeared to have many of the incredible attributes of his late
sister Diana.

Captioning the post, he
penned: “My late grandmother, Cynthia Spencer, was born #otd in 1897. She
married my grandfather in 1919 and died 50 years ago in 1972. Even though I
was only 8 when she died, I remember her with love, gratitude, and respect. A
happy 125th birthday to you, Grandmother…”

Talking to the camera, he
said: “She was just a wonderfully warm, delightful woman.

My late grandmother, Cynthia
Spencer, was born #otd in 1897. She married my grandfather in 1919,
and died 50 years ago in 1972. Even though I was only 8 when she died, I
remember her with love, gratitude, and respect. A happy 125th birthday to you,
Grandmother….

“She came from a very
privileged background she was the daughter of an Irish Duke… a young society
lady, her name was being muted as a possible bride to the future king Edward V
III but she wasn’t really up for that I don’t think.

“I remember Mr. Pendring,
the butler, saying ‘she was a real lady’ and he loved the fact that when she
sat at the dining table she was very polite but she also sat rigidly upright in
the way that, she was brought up in the way of old school aristocracy.

“She acted as the Queen
Mother’s closest confidants, she knew how to behave with everyone, she had
impeccable manners but she could also charm the birds out of the trees she had
that wonderful presence.”

Much like the impressive
legacy of her granddaughter Princess Diana, the Earl explained she,
“became a stalwart of the local area, visiting farmers and villagers if
they were unwell.

He added: “She was very
community minded it’s a testimony to her popularity in this area that the
hospice serving the local town Northampton is still called the Cynthia Spencer
Hospice.
