And holidaymakers can enjoy a night in one of Prince William’s luxury cottages for less than the price of a Travelodge, reports the Mirror.

The Prince rents out dozens of holiday homes through his £1billion Duchy of Cornwall estate – with one of King Charles’ favourite’s recently being added.

There are now dozens of deals on offer as William’s team scramble to fill slots in August and September.

A week in one of his Cornish cottages now costs as little as £980 for four, which works out at just £35 per person per night – cheaper than a budget Travelodge hotel.

Wills’ property portfolio includes historic manors and secluded country cottages in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

Three of his properties in Lostwithiel – Diggery, Staniforth and Hext – have all been reduced.

A brochure tells how the lets all “combine traditional elegance with contemporary comfort”.

Dad-of-three William, 41, became the Duke of Cornwall when his father Charles became King.

The title is usually held by the monarch’s eldest son and as heir, William also became the Prince of Wales.

The 685-year-old Duchy Estate holds 0.2% of the land in the UK.

It also finances William and his wife Kate’s official duties.

The most elegant of its holiday lets, the nine-bed Restormel Manor in the Fowey Valley, has had its price cut by £2,328 for the last week in August.

It now costs £517 per person to stay – or £73 per night.

The 500-year-old property boasts an indoor heated pool and spa, its own tennis court and a fishing licence for the local river.

One previous guest at the Cornish manor wrote online: “We could not fault the comfort in any way, it was totally wonderful in every respect.”
