Highgrove House, which is located near Tetbury in Gloucestershire, England, served as the country home of King Charles III and Queen Consort Camilla before he became sovereign of the United Kingdom.

King Charles has called Highgrove in Gloucestershire his private residence since 1980.

The estate was built between the years 1796 and 1798 by a man named John Paul Paul and architect Anthony Keck, according to House Beautiful.

In 1987, King Charles III turned the residence into a family home so that he, his first wife Princess Diana, and two children Prince William and Prince Charles would have a place to spend weekends away from London. 

Google Arts & Culture also takes fans through Clarence House, which was the official residence of King Charles III and his wife Camilla.

Clarence House was built in 1827 for The Duke of Clarence who would later become King William IV. From 1953 to 2002, the Queen Mother called the four-story house her home.

For a short time, Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh lived in the home after they were married in 1947.

Up until he was pronounced king, it served as the primary residence of Prince Charles, as he was known then. It is thought that King Charles III will make Buckingham Palace his primary residence in the days and weeks after Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. Prince William and Catherine, the new Prince and Princess of Wales, may take over Clarence House.
