Charles Spencer Shares An Emotional Photo To Commemorate A Painful Anniversary

17

In a stunning black-and-white image shared online, the ninth Earl Spencer, 60, showed off his late mother Frances Shand Spencer, née Kydd, looking opulent in a headscarf and pin-striped top from the 1960s.

Alongside the photograph, he penned: “Remembering my mother, who died 20 years ago today, aged 68. She had a wretched final few years, health wise, and I prefer to think of her in happier times; here, looking rather glam, in the ‘60s.”

The beautiful image struck a chord with royal fans. “She’s beautiful. She had gorgeous children with hearts of gold @charles.earl.spencer,” one penned in the comments section. A second added: “Oh Charles I think your Dear Mother loved her children very much as you are proving by your reverence in her regard.”

In the unique picture, Frances bears an astonishing family resemblance to the late Princess of Wales. 

Althorp House, where Charles stays, has been on the Spencer family estate since 1508. The author enjoys telling the amazing tales that go along with some of the amazing artifacts the estate has, many of which include his family. 

He posted a stunning portrait of his mother in the library of his magnificent home last year.

“Portrait of my mother, which stands in Althorp’s Library surrounded by pictures of 4 of her children. (The other – her son, John – died on the day he was born.),” he wrote. 

Adding: “My mother was born 87 years ago today, in Park House, Sandringham,” Charles began. “On that very same day – 20 January 1936 – a few hundred yards away, in Sandringham House, King George V died. My mother died in 2004, when 68. Too young.”
