Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer breaks silence after Harry & Meghan doc airs

Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer has posted on social media after his nephew Prince Harry’s bombshell Netflix series dropped its final instalments yesterday, Thursday 15 December.

In the tell-all documentary, the pair make several allegations about their time as senior royals – saying Meghan Markle faced death threats and alleging Prince William "screamed" at his brother during a meeting about the Sussexes' exit from the Royal family.

In the wake of the series dropping on Netflix, Charles took to Instagram to share a photo of a portrait of Charles I.

He wrote alongside it: “Portrait of Charles I, hanging in the Picture Gallery at @althorphouse – the king visited the house in the 1630s, as an honoured guest – at one banquet recorded as feasting on herons, peacocks, and even the humble potato (which was relatively new to England then)."

Charles went on: "He was also allowed to visit Althorp [the Spencer estate] several times in 1647, when being held prisoner at his palace of Holdenby – after losing the first English Civil War. The king’s hobbies included Bible-reading, chess, and lawn bowls, and Althorp had an excellent bowling green. Charles was executed in London, in January 1649.”

One person replied to the post – as they appeared to make a dig at Harry & Meghan dropping on Netflix: “Very apt portrait and king to reflect on today.”

“I wish I was a fly on your wall. The history your family would have collected in time,” added another.

Meanwhile, others gushed over the portrait and expressed their hopes of visiting Althorp House to see it for themselves.

Not only does Althorp house boast some magnificent artwork, it has a special temple dedicated to the late princess where visitors can go to pay their respects. 'The Round Oval Lake' is where Princess Diana is buried, however, the precise location is secret and remains inaccessible to the public.

Diana features in several times in Harry and Meghan’s tell-all series, with the Duke of Sussex insisting that he won’t let people forget his mother’s “truth”.

The series controversially features clips of Diana's Panorama interview, despite William's call for it to be banned from broadcast.

Harry says in the documentary: “I think we all now know she was deceived into giving the interview. But, at the same time, she spoke the truth of her experience.

“I think she had a lived experience of how she was living that life. She felt compelled to talk about it."
