Britain's Prince Harry is reportedly in line to inherit his father, Prince Charles' country estate in Gloucestershire.

According to a new unofficial biography 'Charles: Heart of a King', by Catherine Mayer, the 66-year-old royal would 'love' his 30-year-old son to take the property in Gloucestershire off his hands.

It is said the house named Highgrove, near Tetbury, is one of Prince Charles' proudest achievements after he restored its organic garden and is keen for Harry to take over after his oldest son Prince William, set up his own home at Anmer Hall in Norfolk.

Catherine quotes an unidentified source as saying: 'William seems to have chosen to live up in Norfolk, and yet his father has spent so long building [Highgrove] that I'm sure he would love one of his sons to inherit.

"It's a father's expression of immortality. It embraces his commitment to sustainable farming and to the world of the botanical, the natural world, and then he's got his Islamic garden there so it's an expression of his interests."

Prince Harry has previously gotten into trouble at the property after he was caught smoking cannabis aged 16 in the grounds.
