Earl Spencer was spotted arriving at the BBC Broadcasting House in London on Sunday after admitting he most likely won’t be at King Charles’ coronation.
Princess Diana’s brother, 58, who lives at Althorp House in Northamptonshire, appeared in good spirits as he arrived at the TV studios.
It’s unclear why Charles, who carried a brown bag and donned a navy suit, was at the Broadcasting House.
It comes after he recently admitted he probably won’t be invited to King Charles’ coronation on Jane Garvey and Fi Glover’s Times Radio podcast, Off Air.
Asked about whether he’ll be invited to the event, the author responded: ‘I wouldn’t have thought so, I think it’s only about two thousand people going.

‘There is some old coronet knocking about here somewhere but I won’t be wearing it soon, I don’t think’.
However the uncle of Prince William and Prince Harry didn’t seem too bothered about not getting an invitation to the royal event.
He admitted: ‘The whole royal thing… I don’t find it as interesting as other people, you know? I just get on with my life… People assume that I care a lot but it’s just a side part of my life.’
King Charles’ coronation takes place on May 6 with ‘save the date’ notices expected to go out to guests this week and official invitations to follow in April.
And while the guest list has been slashed from the 8,000 who attended the late Queen’s Coronation in 1953 to 2,000, there is one area the King has expanded.
The sacred ceremony is intended to be an intimate exchange between the monarch and their people in the presence of God.
But as part of his plan to bring the ceremony up to date, King Charles has decided to move on from the 900-year-old tradition by inviting his crowned friends, including European royals and rulers from Arab states.

It is still uncertain whether Prince Harry will visit for the occasion from his home in California with his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
Last month, Charles Spencer unveiled a stunning portrait of his mother Frances Shand Kydd – and royal fans went wild for the family resemblance to Princess Diana.
He took to Instagram to share a painting of his late mother to mark her 87th birthday.
He explained in the caption that the image stands in his home’s library, surrounded by pictures of four of her children, adding: ‘My mother was born 87 years ago today, in Park House, Sandringham.
‘On that very same day – 20 January 1936 – a few hundred yards away, in Sandringham House, King George V died. My mother died in 2004, when 68. Too young.’

Royal fans were stunned by the portrait, with many saying Frances appeared the double of Princess Diana.
One person wrote: ‘Very sad, too young. However, it’s plain to see where Diana’s beauty came from. She too was way to young.’
Another social media user said: ‘Wow. Diana obviously got her beauty from your mother. This is a lovely portrait.’
A third added: ‘She’s so beautiful. Diana definitely looks similar to her.’ A fourth wrote: ‘Diana’s beauty shows through your mum.’
The portrait captures Frances as a young woman, as she gazes out of the frame to the left.

Frances, then 18, and the 8th Earl Spencer ‘Johnnie’, 30, married in 1954 before divorcing in 1969.
In 1968, Frances lost a custody battle for Diana, Charles and their sisters Jane and Sarah and tried in 1971 to regain custody from Johnnie Spencer, but lost once again.
The mother of Diana went to live with her new husband in Scotland after losing her first custody battle for her children, in which she was dubbed ‘the bolter’.
Princess Diana died at the age of 36 when the car she was travelling in crashed in a Paris tunnel on August 31, 1997.
