Portrait reveals Princess Diana's striking resemblance to grandmother
Charles Spencer has caused a stir online after sharing a portrait of his grandmother, whom many believe shares a striking resemblance to his famous sister Princess Diana.
The Earl posted a charcoal sketch of his grandmother, Cynthia Spencer, that was drawn in 1919 - the year she married Spencer's grandfather.
"A very well-liked and respected figure locally, her presence is still felt: the local hospice is named 'Cynthia Spencer Hospice' in her memory," Charles wrote in an Instagram post.
The post attracted hundreds of comments from his followers.View this post on Instagram
"I see Diana," one follower wrote.
"Diana looked a lot like her. Beautiful portrait," another wrote.
"A very beautiful lady… Diana really resembles her with those gorgeous Spencer eyes," yet another wrote.
Countess Spencer passed away from a brain tumour at Althorp, the Spencer family's home, in 1972 when Diana was just 11.
