“It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the British royal family enjoys many lavish homes around the United Kingdom. From Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle to Sandringham House and Balmoral Castle, there’s no shortage of beautiful places for Queen Elizabeth and her brood to enjoy, either as official residences or vacation spots.
According to Daily Mail, Camilla complained three times about the extensive renovations being done at The Old Mill, which is located next to her home, Ray Mill House, after the owners revealed plans to demolish their garage and replace it with a two-story building. Camilla was reportedly concerned about flooding issues, as well as the addition of the “granny flat.”
While the home isn’t her main only residence, Camilla still spends time at Ray Mill House, hosting her children and grandchildren, per The Sun. Despite her numerous objections, the owners of The Old Mill — a Mr. and Mrs. Phil and Trudy Clayton — were allowed to carry out their plans.
Now that the five-year renovation is complete, the Claytons are planning to rent out the granny flat to tourists, which has led to new round complaints from locals. But Trudy doesn’t understand what the fuss is about.
“I find it very difficult to understand why people who are completely unaffected by the improvements we have carried out at The Old Mill put so much time and wasted energy, time and time again … it is always the same group of people, objecting no matter what the planning application is for,” she wrote in a letter to the council. “I find it rather sad on their behalf. Their time and energy could be used for a much more worthy cause.” “
