The Queen’s View, Tarland, Dee Valley, Aberdeenshire. This spectacular spot is nominated in this week’s Country Life as the Prince of Wales’ favourite view. ‘I have known this spectacular view all my life and never tire of seeing it again,’ The Prince writes. ‘There seems to be a perfect balance in the broad sweep of the Howe of Cromar, with its patchwork of small farms and woodland, leading the eye gently up to the summit of Lochnagar, 20 miles or more away. ‘Part of the attraction is that every visit is slightly different. The seasons create dramatic changes, with snow on the highest hills for much of the year, and sometimes spark-ling across the lowlands in the foreground, too. ‘At other times, sunshine and showers race each other across the fields, creating alternating shadows and the brightest of lights. The colours and the detail of the landscape are always changing, with the grass glowing a bright green in the spring and gradually giving way to ripening barley, bales in the fields and all the rich tints of autumn leaves in the woodland. ‘This magnificent beauty spot gained its name from Queen Victoria, who fell in love with what quickly became known as Royal Deeside more than 150 years ago. It is said that the Queen ordered her coach to stop so she could admire this view across the Lower Valley of the Dee, looking towards her beloved Balmoral and the peak of Lochnagar. We know from her diaries that Queen Victoria returned repeatedly to the spot during her frequent stays on Deeside, and it is easy to see why. ‘For me, whenever I drive over the crest of the Howe, this panoramic view never fails to lift my spirits. The fact that this unspoiled place has not altered greatly for hundreds of years makes it even more remarkable and memorable. Above all, this is a view which epitomises Aberdeenshire, a part of the world I have known and loved for my entire life.’ #princeofwalescountrylife #thequeensview #aberdeenshire - - - - 📷 by Glyn Satterley - Get six issues of Country Life for £6 – see bit.ly/CL-6-for-6 for details and terms.

This is Ross. He's a red squirrel being reintroduced to Cornwall by the Cornwall Red Squirrel Project. The scheme is part of a concerted, nationwide effort to bring red squirrels back into the wild spearheaded by Red Squirrel Survival Trust, whose patron is The Prince of Wales. The last time a wild red squirrel was spotted in Cornwall was in 1984; most of Britain’s 140,000 are in Scotland, but there are also pockets in the north of England, Wales and on the Isle of Wight. By contrast its nemesis, the grey squirrel, numbers 2.5 million. Hopes are high that Ross and his partner Demelza will start to repopulate Cornwall with red squirrels, and in doing so reverse the damage done to this delightful native species when greys were introduced as an ornamental species 140 years ago. 📽️ Many thanks to Ian Hampton of the Cornwall Red Squirrel Project for sharing this video with us. #redsquirrels #cornwall #princeofwalescountrylife - - - Get six issues of Country Life for £6 – see bit.ly/CL-6-for-6 for details and terms.
Dumfries House, East Ayrshire. The restoration and regeneration of the garden at Dumfries House in East Ayrshire, which The Prince of Wales –The Duke of Rothesay in Scotland – helped to save for the nation more than 10 years ago, is nothing short of spectacular. On the eve of the sale, at the intervention of His Royal Highness, the removal lorries turned back and restored the furnishings to the house for which it was intended. The Prince headed a consortium that managed to raise the £45 million necessary (£20 million came from The Prince’s own Charitable Trust) to administer the property under the umbrella of The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust. The spectacular gardens at Dumfries feature in this week’s issue of Country Life magazine, which has been guest-edited by His Royal Highness himself. · · · 📷 by Val Corbett @clarencehouse #PrinceofWalesCountryLife #Dumfries

The Royal Warrant outside Ede & Ravenscroft, Savile Row. A gentleman never talks about his tailor and, it transpires, the reverse is also true. Ede & Ravenscroft and Anderson & Sheppard, both of whom hold a Royal Warrant, are at the very heart of British bespoke tailoring. They have nearly 500 years of experience between them, insist on maintaining the highest possible standards and dress some of the world’s most prominent and powerful men—not least HRH The Prince of Wales. Royal warrants of appointment are issued to those who supply goods or services to a royal residence or particular member of the royal family, namely either HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales, who guest-edited this week’s issue of Country Life magazine. · · · 📷 by Arthur Greenberg / Alamy Stock Photo @clarencehouse #PrinceofWalesCountryLife #RoyalWarrant Get six issues of Country Life for £6 – see bit.ly/CL-6-for-6 for details and terms.
The gardens at Highgrove, Doughton, Glouchestershire. The seasons at Highgrove are distinct and dramatic, not only climatically, but in the seasonal displays that The Prince of Wales has created. Each has The Prince’s signature, with an emphasis on chosen colours, colour combinations, scent and structure. The lines of the garden are clean and crisp, and the trees stand as statuesque silhouettes with the low light levels creating long shadows on bright autumn days. Summer is guided into autumn with abundant long-lasting displays of hydrangeas in all their multitude of forms and sizes, to take the garden through this lean time of flowering. Even as the hydrangea flowers wane, the change in their colour remains rich and endearing. · · · @clarencehouse #PrinceofWalesCountryLife #Highgrove Get six issues of Country Life for £6 – see bit.ly/CL-6-for-6 for details and terms.
The banks of the River Dee, Balmoral Castle Estate, Scotland. In this week’s issue of Country Life, HRH The Duke of Cambridge speaks about his father’s passion for the environment as something he has looked up to all of his life. “His unwavering commitment to rural issues and the countryside has been a big inspiration to me and something I am keen to emulate and teach my children about.” Some of His Royal Highness’s earliest childhood memories are from Balmoral, where his father taught him all about the natural world around him “from the burns to the trees to the hills”. HRH The Prince of Wales has certainly passed his love for nature onto his son, who told our Editor “there is nowhere I feel more relaxed, energised and at peace than the British countryside.” He spoke about his love for Norfolk and Anglesey, adding “a big part of me is also in Scotland – my family has deep connections there and it was such a fun part of my childhood and upbringing." · · · 📷 by Tim Graham / Getty Images @clarencehouse #PrinceofWalesCountryLife #Balmoral - Get six issues of Country Life for £6 - see bit.ly/CL-6-for-6 for details and terms
Clarence House, London SW1, The Official Residence of Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall. Clarence House takes its name from its first occupant: William, Duke of Clarence, the third son of George III, who ruled as William IV from 1830 to 1837. HRH The Prince of Wales has occupied Clarence House as his official London residence since 2003, after it passed to him from the Queen Mother. His Royal Highness told Country Life: "If my Grandmother came back she would recognise it at once. I haven't changed anything really – just parts of the garden which I have tried to enhance a bit. Obviously some of the curtains and coverings have had to be renewed and are slightly different, but much of it is exactly the same." · · · 📷 by Will Pryce / Country Life Picture Library@clarencehouse #ClarenceHouse #PrinceofWalesCountryLife - Get six issues of Country Life for £6 - see bit.ly/CL-6-for-6 for details and terms
