Laura Lopes, the daughter of Camilla Duchess of Cornwall, could inherit two stately homes – yikes!
CAMILLA, THE DUCHESS OF CORNWALL married Prince Charles in 2005, and it is expected that she will become the Queen Consort once Charles is crowned King.
Camilla is the mother of two children, Laura and Tom.
But, once their mother is crowned Queen, where will they live?
On April 9, 2005, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, married Prince Charles in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall.
Tom Parker Bowles, 47, and Laura Lopes, 43, both of Camilla’s children, were present.
For the occasion, they were joined by their new step-brothers Prince William, 39, and Prince Harry, 37.
Laura, the Duchess of Cornwall’s daughter, grew up in Wiltshire, at Bolehyde Manor in Allington and later at Middlewick House in Corsham.
Laura is not a member of the royal family, but she will one day inherit a portfolio of properties fit for a king.
Laura’s 44-year-old husband, Harry Lopes, is Massey Lopes, 2nd Baron Roborough’s grandson.
He will inherit Gnaton Hall in Devon and Skelpick Estate in the Scottish Highlands in the future.
Gnaton Hall is a Grade II listed country house with five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens.
On the ground floor, there appear to be large sash windows with glazing bars and a massive splayed bay window in the front drawing room.
A massive Doric porch with double doors and a rectangular fanlight greets visitors at the central doorway.
Skelpick Estate also has two holiday homes on the River Naver.
The latter is famous for its abundance of wildlife, which includes wild salmon, red deer, and pheasants.
The estate stretches all the way up to the north coast, complete with dramatic cliffs, golden sandy beaches, and small crofting communities.
Golf, horseback riding, deep-sea fishing, and surfing, as well as salmon fishing on nearby rivers, are all popular activities in the area surrounding the estate.
Laura married the Calvin Klein model turned chartered accountant in Wiltshire in 2006 in front of friends and family, including Prince William, Prince Harry, and, of course, Camilla.
The bride looked stunning in her Anna Valentine gown, which was designed by the same designer as Camilla’s wedding gown to Prince Charles in 2005.
Laura told Town and Country magazine about her big day: “I got married in May, surrounded by the scent of lily of the valley.”
