Prince Charles: Inside the £3.9million royal estate in Gloucestershire – Highgrove House

Prince Charles stays at Clarence House when he is in London, but he and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, own a wonderful country retreat called Highgrove House. It has all the royal additions fans would expect, including a stunning outdoor pool. A file photo of Prince William as a toddler shows him and Charles strolling along the pool on a summer day in the 1980s.

At the time, the swimming pool was bordered by a white palisade and many flower beds brightened up the space.

A more recent aerial image of the property shows the outdoor swimming pool in all its glory, beautifully positioned with stunning views of the surrounding countryside.

The nine-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is renowned for its beautiful decor and beautiful gardens.

Prince Charles bought his country estate, Highgrove House, in 1980 and lived there with Princess Diana, Prince William and Prince Harry.

The nine-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is surrounded by 900 acres of organic land, including a farm that Prince Charles installed when the property was first renovated.

The gardens, meanwhile, are very important to the Prince of Wales.

They have been open to the public for over 25 years on select dates throughout the summer, and all money raised is donated to charity.

Charles’ property has quite a rich history behind it.


It was discovered in 2011 that the Prince of Wales had paid himself over £8million in rent since buying the estate.

Prince Charles regularly posts photos of the house and gardens on his social media.

Instagram user @victorianhousegarden previously commented, “A wonderful and enchanting atmospheric sight.”

Likewise, @sallymac1490 added: “It’s spectacular. A labor of love.
