“Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has access to a vast array of properties as a senior member of the Royal Family. Her daughter from her previous marriage to Andrew Parker Bowles, Laura Lopes, is expected to inherit two impressive stately homes – though not through her mother’s royal connection.
Ms Lopes is married to Harry Lopes, who is the grandson of Massey Lopes, the second Baron Roborough.
Harry Lopes was a former Calvin Klein model who turned his back on the fashion industry to become an accountant.
The Lopes are in line to inherit Gnaton Hall in Devon, as well as the family’s titles of Baron and Baroness.
Gnaton Hall is a grand Grade II listed country house in Devon, surrounded by stunning landscaped gardens.
As if this wasn’t enough, Mr Lopes is expected to inherit a second stately home: the Skelpick Estate in the Scottish Highlands.
This vast estate boasts more than 48,000 acres, two-holiday houses and is famed for its abundance of wildlife such as the estate own red deer herd.
Laura and her husband had a long romance which is believed to have begun as far back as 1997.
The pair tied the knot in Lacock, Wiltshire in 2006 with an array of celebs in attendance, such as Prince William and Harry as well as Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.
In fact the Lopes’ wedding was one of Kate’s first public appearances with her future husband William.
Between 400 to 500 guests were estimated to have attended the wedding, and more than 2,000 well-wishers lined the streets after the ceremony according to Vogue.
The couple then celebrated their nuptials with a wedding reception at Ray Mill House, which is Camilla’s nearby home.
Mr Lopes is now chief executive and founder of Eden Renewables, a company that develops renewables and energy storage.
Ms Lopes used to be a motoring correspondent for Tatler before she became an art curator.
The pair are parents to three children, twins Gus and Louis who were born in 2009 and Eliza who was born in 2008.
Their daughter, Eliza, was even a bridesmaid at the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011.
Although the couple tries to stay out of the spotlight, they have been seen at many royal events over the years.”
