He wrote: “My grandmother, Cynthia Spencer, drawn by Sargent in 1919 - the year in which she married my grandfather.”

Prince William and Harry’s uncle went on to say, “When I set out for boarding school, in September 1972, my father told me that “Grandmother” (who I adored) would be constantly popping across from @althorphouse to Maidwell to take me out for tea.

“But not only were we not allowed out on any such occasions, with any family member, it turned out that Grandmother was (much more importantly) very ill with a brain tumour - which grew on a spot where she’d been badly struck during a train crash, years earlier. Grandmother died within weeks of my being sent away to boarding school.”

Charles Spencer concluded, “Not only was Grandmother absolutely adored by her family, she was also loved and respected locally: indeed, the hospice in the nearby town of Northampton is still called “Cynthia Spencer” in her honour.”
