Charles and Camilla visit Kipling's Sussex home
5:26pm Wednesday 19th March 2014 in News
Prince Charles and Camilla visited Rudyard Kipling's Sussex home today.
The royal couple went to Burwash in East Sussex to visit Bateman's, which was the home of author Rudyard Kipling between 1902 and 1936.
The property was given to the National Trust by the family in 1939 and the rooms remain as the author of The Jungle Book left them.
Charles and Camilla were greeted by children from Burwash Primary School and also met house manager Gary Enstone.
The Prince was presented with a signed copy of a book by Kipling called A Fleet in Being, a series of articles about the British Channel Fleet.
He and Camilla also toured the house and gardens, including Kipling's study where he wrote some of his works, and the school room, where the couple viewed items from the Bateman's archive, including letters written by Kipling's son, John "Jack" Kipling, who was killed during the First World War.
