Share this:

Highgrove House, Prince Charles' country estate is now home to two new special additions thanks to the help of the Prince's grandson, Prince George. The youngster helped his green-fingered granddad plant two new trees in the grounds of the heir to the throne's country retreat.

This week's HELLO! magazine – issue 1385 – has exclusive details of the plantings done by the duo at the Gloucestershire property, which Charles bought in 1980.

Prince George and Prince Charles have been spending some quality time together

Charles enjoys spending his time keeping up appearances of the Highgrove gardens which are visited each year by more than 30,000 people. HELLO! spoke to one visitor who described the Prince of Wales as "obviously very proud of Prince George".

Prince George has been in the public eye more than ever recently. Since becoming a big brother to new baby, Princess Charlotte – whom he visited in hospital - the toddler Prince has been seen several more times by royal fans.

Under the watchful eye of his mum the Duchess of Cambridge, little George was joined by his second cousins, Mia Tindall and Savannah and Isla Phillips, who frolicked on the sidelines as George's father Prince William and uncle Prince Harry played a game of their own at the Gloucestershire Festival of Polo.

Part of the royal family spent a day watching Princes William and Harry take part in a polo match

On Sunday, the Duke of Cambridge celebrated his second Father's Day - which also happened to be his 33rd birthday. The royal spent the significant day privately with his son and newborn daughter Princess Charlotte.

Royal watchers are no doubt looking forward to the next family gathering - Charlotte's christening, which will be held on Sunday 5 July in Sandringham - at the same church where Princess Diana was christened in August 1961.
