Alex Beresford,40, has shared how he became “emotional” upon visiting the late Princess Diana’s home Althorp House in Northamptonshire, on what would have been her 60th birthday. The Good Morning Britain weatherman said he could picture the young princess running free throughout the house and gardens, before becoming one of the world’s most famous people

All I could imagine was her running free in the grounds

He typed on Twitter: “Spent my morning at Princess Diana’s childhood home where her brother Earl Spencer now resides with his family. 

“All I could imagine was her running free through the house and gardens. 

“It was actually quite emotional being there on what would have been her 60th birthday.”

In response, fans were stunned by the size of the property and its incredibly large grounds, as Alex shared a photo of the sprawling estate.

One said: “I remember how she was referred to as a ‘commoner’ when she married Charles.”

A second replied: “I can only imagine, so sad.”

A third commented: “Could get thousands of affordable homes just on their front lawn.”

On Instagram, the weatherman also posted a photo of himself stood in front of the house, as he had filmed his segment for GMB from the property.

He looked smart for the occasion as he posed wearing a light blue shirt paired with a navy peacoat and beige trousers.

Alex wrote: “On what would have been her 60th Birthday, I’m presenting from Althorp; the stunning childhood home of Princess Diana. 

“Although aristocracy, titles and privilege separate us, she had a way of talking to people all people.

“That’s why she will always be the Peoples Princess,” he added.

Princess Diana died in 1997 and her final resting place is in the grounds of Althorp Park.

Earl Spencer agreed it was best for safety and security reasons for her to be buried at the home, where her grave could be looked after properly and visited by her sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

The Dukes of Cambridge and Sussex will meet later to unveil a statue of their mother to commemorate her incredible life.

The event will be William and Harry’s first appearance together since the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral in April.

Commissioned by the brothers in 2017, the statue will stand in Kensington Palace’s redesigned Sunken Garden.

At the time, they said they hoped it would help visitors to the palace “reflect on her life and her legacy”.

Harry, who lives in the US with his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, and their two children, arrived in the UK last week in order to complete his quarantine ahead of the event.

Kensington Palace confirmed that, in addition to the royal brothers, members of Diana’s close family will attend the unveiling, which is due to take place this afternoon.
