The sprawling property, known as Ray Mill House, set her back £850,000 and it's located just a 15-minute drive away from Highgrove House, the country home she now shares with Prince Charles.

Camilla has chosen to keep the property and she continues to use it as a Wiltshire base when required and she even used it as a backdrop for her 75th birthday portraits shot by the Duchess of Cambridge. Take a look around the grand home…
