Royal mystery solved! The identity of the man in the never-before-seen photo of Princess Dianathat surfaced on Friday has finally been revealed.

"The young man was Adam Russell, the great-grandson of former prime minister Stanley Baldwin, and now a deer farmer in Dorset,"Diana's biographer Andrew Morton told the U.K.'s Guardian.

He said he discovered his identity when he was writing his book of Prince William andPrince Harry's late mother.

Morton said that both she and Adam were "injured during the skiing holiday," and after spending time together he developed romantic feelings for then Lady Diana Spencer.

"They kept each other company while the others went skiing and, at the end of the holiday, Adam was somewhat smitten. But absolutely nothing happened."

The photograph was discovered in the Daily Mirror's photo archive and is marked with the date 26 February 1981 (believed to be the day it was bought) on the back - two days after Diana and Prince Charles' engagement was officially announced by Buckingham Palace.
