Prince Philip’s funeral was held on Saturday at St George’s Chapel in Windsor. The Prince of Wales reportedly left for the Llwynywermod estate in Llandovery, Wales, after the funeral.
A source told the Daily Mail that Charles “wanted to reflect alone” and said there is “no better place for Charles to come to terms with his grief and start to think about his future”.
Llwynywermod is the Welsh home of Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
The fully sustainable three-bedroom residence has been a country retreat for the couple since March 2007.
Charles and Camilla renovated the cottage in 2008 to create a pared back and relaxing getaway.
There is thought to be no TV or DVD player at the residence in the main house.
The couple have instead reportedly opted for an array of books on local folklore and guides to Welsh countryside walks.
The estate also has its very own 192-acre organic farm.
In an interview, Prince Charles previously said it took “a long search lasting some 40 years” to find the estate.

“He is acutely aware that this is a hugely significant moment in his life and he feels like he has the weight of the world on his shoulders.
“All his life he has been heir to throne, but Prince Philip was the patriarch of the family. Overnight that’s changed, and it’s impacted him both professionally and personally.
“He needs time to think and contemplate the future of the Royal Family after what was a very difficult week.”
