Prince George gifted lavish present from King Charles worth £18,000
Prince George and Princess Charlotte take seats at Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle
King Charles is known for being a particularly loving and giving grandfather, so for the first birthday of his first-born grandchild Prince George on July 22 2014 the gift had to be extra-special.
George is the oldest of the grandchildren, with Prince William and Princess Kate later having Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s two children Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet the youngest of the brood.
Queen Camilla’s grandchildren Lola and Freddie Parker-Bowles and Eliza, Gus and Louis Lopes are also now the King’s step-grandchildren.
On George’s first birthday Charles gave him a lavish Victorian-style ‘Shepherd’s hut’, which was installed at the King and Queen’s Gloucestershire estate Highgrove.
The hut included everything from a wood-burning stove to a day bed, and is thought to still be a popular place for the Wales children to play in when they visit their grandparents in the country.

When Prince William turned seven in June 1989, his father installed a tree house at Highgrove, which has since been renovated for him and Kate’s children.
George has also had an entire forest named after him at Balmoral, which Charles explained during an appearance on The One Show in 2021.
He said: “This was a rather empty field that the farm didn’t need anymore. The great thing was that I managed to plant it the same year that my grandson was born, the eldest, George, so I thought I’d call it Prince George’s Wood. It is really for autumn colour and a bit of spring.

“But autumn is the magic up here. So finding all the interesting trees and shrubs that turn an interesting colour is half the battle.”
George, Charlotte and Louis are coming up to the end of their summer holidays, and it is thought they will be spending some time at Balmoral.
Most of the Royal Family travelled up to the Scottish estate for the Bank Holiday weekend, where they were seen attending church on Sunday.
Two members of the family were noticeably absent however, as Zara and Mike Tindall stayed in England so that Zara could compete in the Wellington International Horse Trials in Hampshire.
The 42-year-old equestrian pro was cheered on by her husband of 12 years Mike and their three children, Mia, Lena and Lucas.
Zara performed on the final day of the competition, dressed in a navy blazer and white trousers, as Mike stayed on the sidelines looking after their young family.
