See previously unreleased photos of Princess Diana relaxing in the country

It's rare to see royals stomping about through the mud, but a recently unearthed set of photographs shows Princess Diana and Prince Charles doing exactly that.

The photographs belonged to the late housekeeper of Queen Elizabeth's cousin Princess Alexandra. They were discovered by the housekeeper's son and reveal a relaxed Princess Diana in the early years of her marriage to Prince Charles.
