Despite being in the line of succession, Prince William and Prince Harry will never be able to inherit mum Princess Diana’s childhood home.

The late Princess of Wales was born at the Althorp Estate, which has been in the Spencer family since 1508. The historic property is set to go to Harry and William’s cousin, Louis, who is the son of Earl Charles Spencer.

Belonging to an aristocrat family, the rules dictated that the estate will be inherited by the eldest son and not the first-born child. Hence, Louis, who has three older sisters, is entitled to inherit the sprawling 13,500-acre property.

Not only was the estate the childhood home of Lady Di, but it also became the final resting place of the royal, who passed away in a fatal car crash in Paris in 1997. The property is open to visitors in the summertime.

Louis, whose full name is Louis Frederick John Spencer, is the son of Charles’ first wife, Victoria Lockwood. The 30-year-old lad is an actor by occupation but prefers to keep a low profile.

Back in 2019, Tatler dubbed him as the "top eligible bachelors" back in 2019, following his appearance at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a year prior.
