Camilla wants to extend home so there's more room for grandkids

12 MARCH 2009
With her own two grandchildren growing into toddlers, and the possibility of more new arrivals in the future when stepsons William and Harry start a family, the Duchess of Cornwall's thoughts have turned to how to accommodate the family's growing brood when they come to stay.

The 61-year-old grandmother has put the wheels in motion to obtain authorisation to extend her pre-marital home, where she often spends weekends.

Camilla has applied to North Wiltshire Council for planning permission for an extra bedroom, a bathroom, and a larger landing "to cater for grandchildren" at Ray Mill House in Lacock, Wiltshire. She currently has two grandchildren - 17-month-old Lola - the child of her food writer son Tom Parker Bowles and his wife Sara, and her daughter Laura's child Eliza, 14 months, with husband Harry Lopez.
