Queen Consort Camilla’s £850k Wiltshire home as she returns alone after emotional week

In the days since the Queen’s sad death last week,King Charles III andCamilla, Queen Consort have spent much of their time completing royal engagements in the public eye.

However, having visited the four home nations and having guided the royals through their united display of grief, the couple have now returned to their homes for some private time away from the spotlight.

While King Charles, 73,has headed to Highgrove House in Gloucestershire for a “private day of reflection”, Camilla, 75, has travelled to her own home of Ray Mill House where she has lived for well over 20 years.

Following her split from her first husband Andrew Parker Bowles, Camilla purchased the lavish Wiltshire property and lived at the home between 1996 and 2003.

Since then,Camilla largely spends much of her time at Clarence House alongside King Charles, though has kept the stunning home as a countryside home away from the hustle and bustle of the capital.

Like Charles’ Highgrove home, the Queen Consort’s jaw dropping £850,000 property features an enviable outdoor offering.

The property has its own outdoor swimming pool, stables as well as a river that cuts through its gardens.

With all of this on offer, it’s no surprise that the spaceprovided the backdrop for her Country Life magazine cover earlier this year which was taken by daughter-in-law Kate Middleton.

Inside, Ray Mill House boasts some very traditional interiors and features plenty of high ceilings, ornate fireplaces and delicate cornicing details.

The dining room for instance features a striking white baroque print wallpaper and is decorated with a series of wooden antique furniture including a round dining table, an elegant side unit and a chest of drawers.

On the walls, there are a series of gold framed portraits, with a dazzling silver chandelier giving the room an even more regal feel.

Meanwhile a study area of the house has a cosy feel thanks to its wood panelled walls, dark carpets and green wallpaper.

Elsewhere, the sitting room is equally as grand and boasts a series of floor to ceiling windows which look out onto the property’s garden area.

The room has a distinctly light and airy feel and is decorated with a series of floral chairs, light wooden furniture and another chandelier.

As a result, upstairs guests can find a concrete roof terrace that neatly overlooks the Wiltshire surroundings.
