THIS is a £850,000 country house where Queen Camilla loves to sneak out, but King Charles hates it.
Friends say Ray Mill’s mansion in Lacock, Wiltshire is Camille’s “criminal pleasure” and boasts an outdoor pool, stables and a river.
It became her property after her divorce from Andrew Parker Bowles and was bought with personal funds, therefore it is not part of the royal portfolio of property.
She lived there from 1996 to 2003, and despite the fact that she now has many royal estates and palaces at her disposal, friends say that this is the place where she likes to retire the most.
Friends say the house is important to Camilla as it is where she spends time with her children, Tom Parker Bowles and Laura Lopez, as well as her five grandchildren.
And here she can relax away from prying eyes.
The source said Daily Express: “At the Ray Mill, she can sit down with a big G&T, take off her shoes and watch Coronation Street, which Charles hates.
“She also doesn’t have to worry about how the place looks – Charles is so fussy about cleanliness while she’s throwing her stuff all over the place.
“She doesn’t have to fluff her pillows all the time.”
Another buddy previously said: “In this house, she can cook scrambled eggs in her dressing gown and be among those she loves without any ceremony and no one is looking at her.
“This is a house.”
Meanwhile, interior design expert Deepa Mehta-Sagar and founder of Area Decor LLC in Dubai described what it looks like inside.
She said: “The Ray Mill House has acres of gardens, stables, an outdoor pool and an elegant deck. Huge windows overlook the lush gardens.
“All this demonstrates the Queen Consort’s love for nature and nature. The interiors are interspersed with wood details and dark wood furnishings that create a sense of luxury, yet are wrapped in a sense of warmth.
“It captures the authentic, down-to-earth behavior of the queen consort. Of the many houses that Camilla lives in, this is probably the place where she finds herself the most on her own.
“After all, this is her private residence and home where she spent many years before moving in with King Charles in 2003.
“Since becoming queen, Camilla has maintained her personal home, and Mehta-Sagar suggested that this is because it is an “extension of her personality.”
She believes it is the “perfect sanctuary” for the Queen.
She explained: “This is where the queen consort reportedly spends time with her children and grandchildren, away from prying eyes.
“The Queen Consort has always loved the outdoors and is passionate about gardening.
“In this, the lush, vast gardens in Wiltshire, far removed from the hustle and bustle of city life, are an ode to her.”
