Inside village where King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla have holiday home

The newly-appointed head of state King Charles III made a point of stating in his television address yesterday (September 9) that he wouldn't have as much time to do things he “loved” because of his new role.

But there's one thing that he and Queen Consort Camilla will be making sure they get to do.

And it is a claim to fame for a small Welsh village.

For many, many years, the couple have spent a lot of their free time in rural Carmarthenshire.

According to WalesOnline, the couple bought the Llwynywermod Estate for a whopping £1.2 million in 2007.

Based in Myddfai, the area is home to just 400 people – and that's counting the royal couple.

The estate, which can actually be rented out by mere mortals for holidays, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a stunningly-designed outdoor space.

And the couple stay there on a regular basis, which is something local officials are well aware of.

“It’s quite difficult to say how many times a year he comes here because it’s a very private location,” said local resident Carol Dyer, who is also chairman of Myddfai Community Council.

“And because it’s a private location and a private residence for him, the people of Myddfai have really respected that.

“When he is down here he has been known to go to church on a Sunday morning, and when he first moved to the area he would have an evening to meet the locals.

"One member of the council would take him around to meet everyone, and another would take Camilla around.

“It’s always been very impressive how he talks to people.

“Once the initial introduction has been made he would speak to anyone, and he’s very good at it, Camilla too – many, many people here have had the opportunity to meet him over the years.

“He came to the old village hall and was really and genuinely pleased to be there to meet people, and he then officially opened the new hall.”

The couple are also known to donate prizes to community events for any raffles being held – especially during the local Christmas Fayre.

And now that the estate is owned by the King it is set to turn from a sleepy village in rural Wales, to a top tourist destination for royal fanatics.

Holiday to Llwynywermod, anyone?
