In a video shared to their website, Spencer1508, along with a small snippet posted on Instagram, Karen allowed fans to see inside their ‘Muniment Room’.

Instagram followers couldn’t contain their excitement about the historical space. “So many treasures. Oh, to read the journals, see the photos,” penned one, and: “Everyday must be like opening up Pandora’s Box. So many wonderful treasures, stories and history to explore,” added another.

“I would be in heaven in this room exploring!! I know all this history has captured your heart and soul! I can’t wait for Friday’s episode!” a third added.

Earlier in the month, it was Charles’ turn to reveal a historical gem on his own Instagram feed. The Couple are currently undergoing a huge restoration project at Althorp and they’ve opened up the grounds for an archaeological dig. The Earl delighted fans with his latest discovery – a keystone from the arch of a Roman villa that once stood on the site.

Sharing photographs of the incredible piece, he penned: “The beautifully carved keystone (or capstone) from the arch of the Ancient Roman villa at Althorp. We seem to have the rest of the arch, lying in an excavated pile at present, and we will rebuild it – perhaps 1,600 years since it last stood proud.
