The Duchess of Cornwall now calls Clarence House in London her main home with Prince Charles, but she previously lived at her family estate, The Laines in East Sussex.

The Grade II-listed property features seven bedrooms, three bathrooms, a swimming pool, an orangery and even a tennis court, situated on 5.27 acres of land. It was listed on the market in 2015 for £3.15million, at which time new photos were released, but there are also images showing exactly how it looked during Camilla's time there, when Prince Charles occasionally visited.
