Prince Charles' birthday present for his grandson has been revealed

Prince Charles' lavish birthday present for Prince George

As the future heir to the British throne, little Prince George is showered with plenty of presents – but this latest one from his grandfather surely takes the cake!

In celebration of the little royal’s recent birthday, Prince Charles has reportedly splashed out on plenty of gifts for his young grandson. The most impressive is a hand-made artisan shepherd’s hut that Charles is said to have spent £20,000 on!

The Telegraph reports the hut is built in the Victorian style and comes complete with a wood-burning stove and day bed, while The Daily Mail reports the hut also has French oak wooden floors.

The hut stands in the gardens at Highgrove House, Charles’ personal estate in Gloucestershire, and will surely provide an exciting attraction for George when he visits his grandfather there.

The hut is said to be designed by Plankbridge Hutmakers as a thank you for Charles' help in establishing the company with a Prince's Trust loan. The company specialises in traditional craftsmanship and has made huts for other venues across the UK and Europe, and their website lists Highgrove Garden as one of these.

As well as George’s own playhouse, Charles has also reportedly renovated the treehouse he had built for Prince William when he was just seven years old.

Charles is said to be hopeful his young grandson will carry on his love of gardening and horticulture as he grows up, so his latest present for George looks to be a step in that direction!
