Inside Birkhall, the Scottish house of Prince Charles, which he describes as “calming and tranquil.”
PRINCE CHARLES was in Scotland for a BBC interview to promote environmentalism and sustainability in order to help rescue the earth.
During the summer months, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, remain at Birkhall, a Scottish house on the Queen’s Balmoral estate. When the Queen Mother died in 2002, Charles inherited Birkhall from her. It was also where Charles and Camilla chose to honeymoon in 2005, as well as Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip in 1947.
In a recent BBC interview, Charles praised Birkhall and its 53,000 acres of land, saying, “One of the most fantastic things about [Birkhall] is that it’s beside this river called the Muick, and it has this wonderful sound of rushing water.”
“I believe it’s extremely quiet and serene while you’re in the house.
“It also has a really distinctive ambience because it was the first place Queen Victoria and Prince Albert acquired in 1848 before they bought Balmoral.”
“The home is pretty beautiful because it was built in 1713 and has had extensions ever since,” the Prince exclaimed, excitedly pointing to his surroundings.
On the 80th anniversary of the Battle of St Valery-en-Caux in June 2020, Prince Charles and Camilla revealed the magnificent entry to Birkhall in a video.
It had a massive blue canopy with four giant podiums and four potted plants suspended from the front two podiums and the wooden roof.
The green front entrance sits atop two grey concrete stairs, with a glass panel above it and a white frame.
The Prince of Wales presided over the opening of the new NHS Nightingale hospital in London through Zoom from Birkhall’s Drawing Room.
On Instagram, he posted a picture of his home office setup, which included a sweet display of family photos behind him.
A picture of Charles and Camilla on their wedding day in 2005 was among the frames on a table on the right-hand side, near to a vase of flowers.
In 2018, Charles filmed the BBC documentary ‘Prince, Son, and Heir: Charles at 70.’
In one scenario, Charles was interviewed in the property’s reception area, where he displayed different personal mementos.
