Britain's Prince Philip is reportedly planning to create a vineyard at Windsor Great Park to make wine for the royal family.

Britain's Royal Family are planning to make their own wine at Windsor Great Park.

Prince Philip - husband to Queen Elizabeth - is reportedly involved in the endeavour which aims to plant 16,700 vines in a section of the park in South England which was a former hunting ground for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

The vineyard will be planted with champagne varieties - chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier - with a view to making an English sparkling wine, with Master of Wine and viticultural consultant Stephen Skelton advising on the project, according to Britain's Daily Telegraph.
