If you look at the photograph below the top-right corner of the image features a tall figure of an old lady lingering in the background of this family snap.
Teacher Debbie Monteforte took the photo of her husband Alex and their son Raphael at Christmas, but none of them expected to see this unexpected visitor in the photo.
A family friend said: “Debbie took the pic and thought nothing of it. But when they looked at it on a computer it was plain to see the haunted face of a woman wearing a long dark coat behind them.
“The family insists there was no one standing behind them and there was no place to hang a coat.
“Even if there was someone standing there, they would have to be 8ft tall to appear like that. It’s beyond spooky.”
The Kings Arms Hotel is one of Britain’s oldest pubs and sits in the shadows of Hampton Court Palace, south west London.
The 300-year-old boozer, near King Henry VIII’s former residence, has a dark past.
In the 19th century, a boy is rumoured to have found his mother hanged in the building. The lad was so disturbed he threw himself out a window and died.
Both “ghosts” of the mum and son are said to have haunted the pub ever since.
A grey-haired lady is also said to appear in a bedroom window.
