Fans loved the glimpse into the gardens at Highgrove House

Charles shares his Gloucestershire home with his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the couple recently confirmed that it is set to undergo some major changes.

Charles bought the property in 1980 and lived there with the late Princess Diana and their two sons Prince William and Prince Harry. The nine-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion now serves as a country retreat for Charles and Camilla, and it is where the couple spent much of their time during the COVID-19 lockdowns.

However, it has been announced that the estate is opening its doors to those looking to further their knowledge about masonry, crafts and more.

On their official Twitter page, Charles and Camilla shared a post by The Prince's Trust and added the caption: "The @PrincesFound has announced plans to create a new training and education base at HRH's Highgrove Estate."

The Prince's Trust explained that the new site, which will be located at Barley Court, will extend access to the Foundation’s courses.

In a YouTube video announcing the exciting news, Highgrove Director Constantine Enimee added: "That's going to be stone masonry workshops, crafts workshops – it's really going to be a hub of activity right here on the estate."
