The future king is known for his love for nature. Since building his estate in 1980, he spent years creating a heavenly beautiful garden. In a video, which welcomes visitors to the estate, the Prince of Wales says:

At last at Highgrove, I had the opportunity to work with nature, rather than against it. They say that a garden is in many ways a reflection of a person's soul.

The garden’s grounds also feature the tree house, where Prince William and Prince Harry used to play. The house was built in 1989 for William's seventh birthday, but it was refurbished so that William’s son can play in it, too.


Prince Charles loves spending time with his grandchildren at his estate. When George was only 2 years old, he helped his granddad plant two trees.
