Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince William’s eldest child is third in line to the throne. As the first child of the Cambridges, Prince George, 7, may live in Highgrove when he comes of age in 11 years.

Royal commentator, Christopher Wilson, said the young prince may take a liking to the Cotswold stone house.

He added how Prince William and Prince Harry will not take on their father’s residence as neither of them have “fond memories of the place”.

Mr Wilson also highlighted how Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are unlikely to return to the UK in the near future.

He told “Inevitably Highgrove will become surplus to requirement. Who’ll live there?

“Neither of his sons have fond memories of the place where they watched their parents’ marriage collapse and, in any event, William and Kate are comfortable with their plush Norfolk abode.

“And Harry and Meghan are unlikely to be coming home any time soon.”

He added: “Only 11 years from now our future king-but-two Prince George will come of age.

“Maybe he’ll take a liking to the elegant 18th century Cotswold stone house and its surrounding estate.

“But in his statement saying goodbye to his beloved Home Farm, Charles signalled the closing of a door in his life.”

Prince Charles bought the Gloucestershire property in 1980.

He lived there with Princess Diana and his two sons Prince William and Prince Harry.

Highgrove has nine-bedrooms, six-bathrooms, and is known for its beautiful gardens.

The residence is surrounded by 900 acres of organic land.

It includes a farm which Prince Charles installed when he first renovated the home.

Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were self-isolating in their Scottish residence, Birkhall, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The couple went to Scotland in March after Prince Charles was diagnosed with COVID-19.

But they returned to England to stay at their London residence, Clarence House, in June.

The couple left Scotland to receive the French President, Emmanuel Macron, on behalf of the Queen.

The royal couple and French president celebrated the 80th anniversary of General de Gaulle’s “Appel” in June.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall were the first royals to return to London to resume official engagements.

Clarence House was previously the home of the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, and the Queen Mother, who lived at the residence until her death in 2002.

The London property also provides office space for Prince Charles’ staff.
