Across the years, we've seen some beautiful snaps of Highgrove House – King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla's home. Situated in Gloucestershire, the stunning property was bought by the monarch in 1980 and he initially resided there with Princess Diana, Prince William and Prince Harry.

Since his new appointment as the Prince of Wales, following his grandmother the Queen's passing, Prince William is expected to inherit the beloved property that previously belonged to his father. However, King Charles III is still expected to reside there when his schedule allows.

The nine-bedroom, six-bathroom mansion is surrounded by 900 acres of organic land, including a farm that King Charles installed when he first renovated the property. The gardens, meanwhile, are very important to the former Prince of Wales. They have been open to the public for over 25 years on selected dates through the summer, with all the money raised going to charity.

The Highgrove House Instagram account recently released some autumnal photographs of the residence's luscious gardens – and it looks as beautiful as ever.

Boasting a baby pink gate framed by red brick walls, cascading green foliage and stone pathways, the garden looks as if it belongs in a fairytale.

Another image depicted the grand house framed by trees, whose fallen orange leaves romantically coated the expansive grounds. Perfectly trimmed hedges added to the mystique of the aesthetic outdoor space.

The second image was captioned: "Join us on one of our very special Autumn Walks at Highgrove Gardens and see the gardens cloaked in colour.

Prince William has taken over the Duchy of Cornwall as he is now officially the Duke of Cornwall. The Duchy of Cornwall comprises a range of different properties and land projects, including Highgrove House and the Guy's Estate and the Cradley Estate in Hereford, and even Oval cricket ground.

The impressive Duchy, spanning 23 counties, brings in a £23million-a-year income. The change of hands now makes William the biggest private landowner in Britain with assets around the £1.2billion mark.
