That mysterious photo that surfaced earlier this month of the young, pre-princess Diana Spencer has, it turns out, an equally mysterious buyer.
A real estate investor from San Diego, Calif., who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased the photo for $18,000, according to the New Hampshire auction house RR Auction.
The black-and-white image shows a young Diana lounging with her friend Adam Russell, described by Diana biographer Andrew Morton as the great-grandson of former prime minister Stanley Baldwin and now a deer farmer in Dorset.

With his son and daughter-in-law the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting a baby in early summer, grandfather-to-be Prince Charles says he's determined to be greener than ever – and deliver his future descendant a healthier world, not "a poison chalice."
Long a champion of environment causes, the heir to the throne, 64, told ITV’s This Morning show on Monday: "I've gone on for years about the importance of thinking about the long term in relation to environmental damage, climate change and everything else. We don't, in a sensible world, want to hand on an increasingly dysfunctional world to our grandchildren, to leave them with the real problem."

Move over, Prince William and Prince Harry. Prince Charles is first in line for the throne, and can unofficially be crowned the "King of good tailoring."
The 64-year-old soon-to-be grandfather reigns at No. 8 on GQ 's annual best dressed list – well ahead of dashing William, who came in at 37.
Natalie Massenet of Net-a-Porter and head of the British Fashion Council calls Charles always "on trend." His method being simple: "This is a man who knows what he likes, knows how to wear it, and sticks with it whatever the prevailing fashions," she says in the February issue of the magazine out Thursday in the U.K. and next week in the U.S.

Prince Charles's royal title can't compare to one he will earn next year – grandfather – now that Kate and his son Prince William are expecting their first child.
"I'm thrilled," he told reporters Thursday as he was boarding the HMS Belfast in London. "It's a very nice thought to become a grandfather in my old age, if I can say so."
Meanwhile, Charles says he is happy to see that Kate is recovering and out of the hospital.

Is the man who would be king tired of waiting his turn?
Speculation reigned in Great Britain this weekend after Prince Charles spoke of his "impatience" at an event to promote his 64th birthday at Dumfries House, a once-stately residence that the royal has worked to rehabilitate and save for his country.
"Impatient? Me? What a thing to suggest! Yes, of course I am," joked the Prince who passed his great-great grandfather Edward VII as the longest-waiting heir in his nation's history. "I'll run out of time soon. I shall have snuffed it if I'm not careful."
His mother, Queen Elizabeth, has served her country for 60 years and remains in good health at 86. Her own mother lived in be 101 in a genetic predisposition for longevity that could see Prince Charles cooling his heels for years longer as his sons, Princes William and Harry, grab the spotlight.

They saved the best for last!
After a long day of speeches, handshakes and wine tastings, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla wrapped up their Diamond Jubilee visit to Melbourne and Adelaide, Australia, with something incredibly cute: two baby koalas!
At a garden party at Adelaide's Government House on Wednesday, the royals each held a 9-month old koala – one named Matilda, the other Kao (short for chaos) – saved by rescue volunteers Warren and Rae Campbell.

She may be miles and miles away from her dogs Bluebell and Beth, but Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, found someone furry to cuddle during her first visit to Australia on Monday.
Hours after Camilla and Prince Charles arrived in Longreach, Australia, from Papua, New Guinea, they were greeted by a baby kangaroo named Ruby Bloo. Ruby belongs to a young family the royals met at the Stockman’s Hall of Fame, a heritage center which celebrates rural skills and horsemanship.
Animal-loving Camilla held the small kangaroo – who was wrapped in a cozy blanket – in her arms and smiled wide for cameras.
