Inside Prince Charles’ FOUR magnificent homes across the United Kingdom.
The Prince of Wales’ property portfolio spans the British Isles, although he has four primary houses that he utilizes throughout the year.
As senior working royals, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall complete royal engagements across the United Kingdom. Charles and Camilla spend time at residences in England, Scotland, and Wales in addition to their London home. The couple’s four primary houses are listed below.
Clarence House is Prince Charles’ official London house, which he lives with his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall.
Clarence House was the house of the Queen Mother, who died in 2002, before Charles and Camilla moved in.
The property was the home of then-Princess Elizabeth and her husband Prince Philip before she ascended the throne as Queen.
Before relocating to Buckingham Palace with his parents and sister Princess Anne, Charles lived at Clarence House until he was three years old.
The building serves as an official royal residence for receptions and dinners, as well as housing for Charles and Camilla’s servants.
Since the 1980s, Prince Charles has lived at Highgrove House in Gloucestershire.
Maurice Macmillan, the son of former British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan, owned Highgrove before Prince Charles bought it.
Princess Diana and her two boys, Prince William and Prince Harry, lived at Highgrove when they were married to Prince Charles.
When the property is available to guests, Charles is known to be interested in the excellent grounds surrounding Highgrove, and tourists are welcome to tour the gardens.
Prince Charles’ Welsh home is Llwynywermod, near the village of Myddfai in Llandovery, Carmarthenshire.
When Charles and Camilla visit Wales as part of their summer tours and visits, they stay at the home.
Local craftsmen and women were also heavily involved in the remodeling of the castle, according to the Prince of Wales’ official website.
“After purchasing the property, the Duchy of Cornwall worked closely with local craftsmen and contractors to repair the house,” according to the website.
“These include Ty-Mawr Lime from Brecon, who produced the lime plaster, Coe Stone Ltd stonemasons from Neath, and Camillieri, a Vale of Glamorgan roofing contractor.
“Whenever possible, materials were purchased from within Wales. Some of the stone and Welsh slate used in the refurbishment came from the site.”
Welsh linens, pottery, and carpets were also used to decorate the interior of the lovely property.
