New toiletries range inspired by Prince Charles’ Highgrove gardens
A new range of toiletries have been inspired by Prince Charles’ Highgrove gardens.
Perfume designer and skincare guru Alexandra Soveral will launch the Highgrove Signature range, influenced by Charles’ country house in Gloucestershire, next month.
Alexandra told the Sunday Times: “All I can say is that I was inspired by the Highgrove garden and by Prince Charles’s philosophy on nature. You have to get it 100 per cent right – you can’t let the royal family down.”
Alexandra previously worked with Charles on a range of organic baby products in 2013.
Meanwhile, Charles recently revealed he has been gardening with his grandson Prince George at Highgrove and hopes the tot will inherit his love of nature.
He said: “You never know, do you, what people are going to be interested in.
“The most important thing is I got him planting a tree or two here, so we planted it together and shovelled in the earth.
“That’s the way, I think, when you are very small, and then each time they come you say, ‘Do you see how much the tree has grown, or whatever?’ and you hope that they take an interest.”
Charles’ own interest in gardening was sparked by spending time with his grandmother, the late Queen Mother, at Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park and he tries to make his own outdoor spaces as child-friendly as possible, based on what he liked himself as a youngster.
