Camilla Parker Bowles relives spooky encounter with a ghost in Ayrshire home

The Duchess of Cornwall has told her terrifying tale of being haunted by a ghost in hers and Prince Charles’ Scottish getaway home.

In the ITV documentary The Real Camilla, the Duchess said that when her husband, Prince Charles, was doing up their home, she had a horrific paranormal experience which meant she refused to come back to the house "for a few years."

The home in East Ayrshire, which Prince Charles took out a £20million loan to renovate, was left dilapidated before it was restored to its former glory, but its neglected state gave it an "eerie feel," according to the Duchess.

Camilla said: "If you could have seen it when the Prince first spotted it, you wouldn’t have believed it was the same house.

"It was so sad and un-lived in and unloved and neglected.

"And it had a really eerie feel about it – there was definitely a ghost without a showdown of doubt."

She said on her first visit to the house she "literally froze" when trying to walk in, and it scared her off so much that she dared not return.

The Duchess continued: "I remember the first time I walked up the steps. I got into the hall and I thought: ‘I can’t go any further.’

"I literally froze. If my hair could stand on end it would have done."

She felt that she did not want to return, but the renovations obviously meant whatever occupied the space decided to move on.

"I remember leaving and thinking that I don’t want to come back here again, and I didn’t for a few years," she continued.

"But I walked in a completely new house and whatever was there disappeared. The whole thing seemed to be smiling again."


Some cheeky viewers suspected it may have been Diana, the first wife of Prince Charles, whose presence may have been watching over the house.

The documentary comes as Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed their third child, a son, earlier this afternoon.
