Prince Harry and Prince William were pictured playing with their mother, Princess Diana, in the garden of Highgrove House.
Princes William and Harry stayed in several impressive houses with their parents prince charles and princess diana when they were young, but an unearthed photo revealed how the gardens of Highgrove House were really.

In 1986, Princess Diana was photographed spending some quality time with her two sons in a playground filled with exciting children’s toys.
She was helping Prince Harry down a blue slide, which was part of a larger silver frame that featured monkey bars and a trapeze bar – which we imagine were also extremely popular with younger members of the Royal family.

If that wasn’t enough to keep William and Harry entertained, there was also another blue slide and a small plastic house placed elsewhere on the lawn. Surrounded by lush greenery, the gardens certainly look like a perfect playground, even if it’s just hide and seek!

Maybe William and Harry were inspired by their childhood home when they designed their own gardens. The Duke of Cambridge’s three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, were recently filmed playing on swings at Anmer Hall, while the Duke of Sussex’s baby boy Archie has a pretty wendy’s house in the backyard of their home in Montecito.

Prince Charles bought the Highgrove House country house in 1980 and the family often used it for weekends. However, their primary residence was apartment 8 in Kensington Palace where the now Dukes had the top floor of the property to themselves.
The space included their bedrooms and a playroom, where the Princess of Wales was pictured helping her eldest son with a puzzle in 1985.
Luxury children’s design firm Dragons and Walton Street created the space and opted for a red, white, and green color scheme, with a strawberry-print rug. There was a large, cream patterned sofa, a wooden children’s table with a white wooden chair and a rattan stool, as well as two wooden rocking horses.
