All children love to build a Wendy House in the back garden, and the lucky few might even get a wooden playhouse where they can cook pretend food and entertain young guests.

Prince George, however, has done rather better, after he was given an £18,000 cottage on wheels for him to play in when he visits Highgrove.

Visitors to the Prince of Wales’s Gloucestershire home can now glimpse the hand-built Shepherd’s Hut during guided tours of the 15-acre garden.

The Victorian-style outhouse, complete with wood-burning stove and day bed, was a first birthday gift from a Dorset-based company that began with the help of the Prince’s Trust.

It is sited on the edge of the Prince’s wildflower meadow, in the hope, no doubt, that Prince George will be inspired to inherit his grandfather’s passion for horticulture.

Prince George loves to have tea parties with his grandfather, using plastic cups, which will stand him in good stead for the Buckingham Palace garden parties he will be expected to attend when he is grown up.

The Prince of Wales has also initiated him in the art of tree planting, another perpetual royal duty, by getting him to help put in two saplings in the garden of Highgrove.

Prince George’s 12ft x 6ft Shepherd’s Hut was given to him by Plankbridge, whose customers also include Liz Hurley, as a thank-you to the Prince of Wales for helping to establish the company with a Prince’s Trust loan.
