Prince Charles has a special attachment to his grandiose Highgrove Garden, and recently, he has shared a rare view of its splendid grounds.
The magnificent garden is situated at the royal family’s Highgrove estate. It is the most wonderful place to enjoy during the summer. Gorgeous apple trees please the eye alongside fragrant herbs and multicolored blooms, which grow on the 15-acre site.
During the 15 minute #ButterflyCount, some of the butterflies HRH spotted include:— Clarence House (@ClarenceHouse) July 25, 2018

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.
A rare photo
Recently, Clarence House shared a new photograph of Prince Charles enjoying his gorgeous garden, which is also a place favored by his eldest grandson, Prince George, who loves to play there.

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.
