Prince Edward and his wife the Countess of Wessex reside at a £30million mansion, Bagshot Park in Surrey. The 120-room residence is a sight to behold with a striking exterior, endless grounds and breathtaking interiors, but did you know the royal couple have another property on site?

The government website for Surrey Heath explains that "there are several lodges around the boundary of the estate," listing them and their functions.

One of the lodges is Sunningdale, and it is believed that Prince Edward's lease for his grand home, including this lodge too.

Outlining the appearance of the lodges, the website reads: "Sunningdale Lodge is two storey, built of red brick with stone details to window surrounds and gable ends."

Bagshot Park is a vast estate 

While we can't be sure that the family uses it as a residence, there certainly is the opportunity to.

Despite having over 100 rooms inside the main home, a separate building always comes in handy for guests. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a guesthouse on their US estate, ideal for when Meghan's mother Doria Ragland visits.

Does Prince Edward own Bagshot Park?

No, Prince Edward does not own Bagshot Park, as the royal leases the property from the Crown Estate. The Telegraph has reported that the couple has extended the lease for another 150 years. This would have been at a cost of £5million, but the property itself is reported to be worth a staggering £30million if it got listed on the open market.
