Charles Spencer, Diana’s brother, uploaded the photo to his Instagram Stories, revealing a view of the lake on the spot at night.

WATCH: Princess Diana’s childhood home could be a farmhouse in this clip

Across the lake, not in frame, is the temple dedicated to the late Princess of Wales, which is a place for fans to visit and leave flowers and messages.

The 500 year old house is a Grade I listed residence and has 90 spectacular bedrooms and is surrounded by 550 acres of glorious grounds.

The moonlight illuminated Althorp beautifully

When the public visits the breathtaking house, it is an exclusive experience because Charles made the decision to ban photography inside the Northamptonshire home.

However, fans are allowed to take photos outside the family home, which means they can get a great shot from outside the building.

The residence was actually the first place Diana met Prince Charles, when he was invited to the family home by his sister Sarah Spencer.

Charles Spencer grew up in Althorp House with his three older sisters and inherited the family home when his father John died in 1992. Charles became the 9th Earl Spencer and set about renovating the family ancestral seat.

The property opens annually every summer and will close on August 29, so hurry if you want to check it out!
