Fans have been comparing This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford to late royal Princess Diana.

The ITV host, who works on the show with husband of 10 years Eamonn Holmes, took to her Instagram page with an adorable throwback photo – and she seems to be reminding fans of the nation’s beloved Princess Diana.

Ruth posted a photo on her Instagram page from 19 years ago alongside one of her best friends.

And the presenter looked fabulous wearing baby pink cropped trousers with a matching blazer and pink pumps sporting a short blonde haircut.

Sorting through some old photos and found this,’ she wrote alongside the sweet snap. ‘19 yrs ago at my Godson Charlie’s christening. The day before I had just found out I was pregnant with Jack!

‘👶🏻@eamonnholmes was away with the children so my best friend here @balshaw.sam was the first to know....a very special moment together.

‘We’ve shared a lot of those during our 30 yr friendship....thanks mate ❤️ She’s fairly new to all this so it would be lovely if you give her a follow and say hello #friendship #bff’.
