Timber! Why Queen Consort Camilla has an axe to grind
WHILE King Charles is evicting Prince Harry and Meghan from Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, his wife, Camilla, is clearing out the dead wood from her own back yard.
I hear the Queen Consort’s head gardener, Paul Jellyman, has applied for permission to undertake extensive work on nine huge trees at Raymill House, the Grade II-listed property that she retained as a country retreat after marrying the future King in 2005.
Jellyman had to seek permission from Wiltshire Council because the trees are in a conservation area.
She wants to fell two alders and carry out significant work on three ash trees, with work to be done to four other trees.
