Charles Spencer, the brother of Diana, Princess of Wales, shared a sentimental throwback photo from the siblings' childhood on Twitter Saturday.

In the photo, which Charles posted without a caption or description, a young Diana is seen with her arm around her little brother. In addition to Charles, Diana had two sisters, Sarah and Jane Spencer.

The 9th Earl Spencer's throwback post comes just days after he publicly called out the BBC for using illegitimate documents to help secure the network's explosive interview with the late princess 25 years ago, according to People. During that interview, Diana dropped her now-infamous quote claiming that there were "three" individuals inside her marriage, alluding to Prince Charles's infidelity with his now wife, Duchess Camilla.

"[The BBC] have yet to apologise for what truly matters here: the incredibly serious falsification of bank statements suggesting that Diana’s closest confidants were spying on her for her enemies," Spencer told People earlier this month.

Though Diana, often described as the 'People's Princess', died at the age of 36 in a tragic car crash, her legacy lives on and is seemingly more popular now than ever. The forthcoming season of Netflix's The Crown is set to showcase Diana's entry into the royal family and her and Charles's tumultuous marriage. Director Pablo Larraín is also reimagining the late royal's life in Spencer, an upcoming biopic starring Kristen Stewart that details the princess's decision to leave her husband and royal life behind.
