Prince Charles Opens His Own Bed And Breakfast At Scottish Castle

Days after welcoming his grandson Archie, Prince Charles has opened a ten-room bed and breakfast in Scotland called The Granary Lodge.

The news was announced earlier this month by Clarence House, which tweeted, “Today, the Duke of Rothesay visited the Castle of Mey in Caithness, Scotland, to officially open the Granary Lodge. @PrincessFound has worked to create The Granary Lodge, a new bed and breakfast in the grounds of @castleofmey overlooking The North Sea to Orkney.”

“The accommodation will be owned and operated by the Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust, and profits raised will go towards maintaining and operating the estate as a tourist destination in the North Highlands of Scotland,” Clarence House continued.

The website states that among the ten rooms are two “individually styled” suites, a relaxing drawing room “with beautiful views” over the Pentland Firth to Orkney “and a warm Highland welcome.”

“The Caste of Mey was the property of The Duke of Rothesay’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, from 1952 to 1996, when Her Majesty was gifted it with an endowment to the Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey Trust,” Clarence House stated. “The Queen Mother set about renovating and restoring both the castle and its gardens and parklands, which extended to about 30 acres. Following this, she spent three weeks in August at the castle, returning for about tens days in October each year.”

This announcement came just days after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their son Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, who is Charles’ fourth grandchild.
