Prince George's $30,000 Garden Playhouse Is Fit for Royalty, of Course

Dana Covit

A playground fit for a prince? We wouldn't expect anything less for 2-year-old Prince George. The Daily Mail reports that George's doting grandfather Prince Charles has taken to the famed gardens at Highgrove House, his private estate in Gloucestershire, to create something of a toddler's dream playscape.

After recently refurbishing the treehouse he built for Prince George's father William's seventh birthday in 1989, Prince Charles also added a $30,000 “hand-made, artisan shepherd’s hut” to the grounds. The 12-foot Victorian-style hut, painted in Charles’s favorite color, a pale robins-egg blue, reportedly took 250 hours to build and has an English oak window and door (because #luxury) as well as its own woodburner and bed, furnished by the heir to the throne himself. The Daily Mail reports that Prince Charles also gifted his grandson a tea set, and that the two have already taken to picnicking on the grounds.

Scroll to explore the gardens at Highgrove House, where we imagine the little prince will be spending many afternoons exploring for years to come. The good life!
