Although a lot of us might not believe in ghosts, the same does not necessarily go for the Duchess of Cornwall. Camilla Parker Bowles was once so spooked by a ghost in Prince Charles' Scottish home, that she refused to visit the place for years.

The Duchess, who believes in supernatural entities, was visiting the dilapidated Dumfries House, Ayrshire, about more than a decade ago when the incident first took place. “It was so sad and un-lived in, unloved and neglected,” Camilla revealed in the documentary. "If you could have seen it when the Prince first spotted it, you wouldn’t have believed it was the same house."

She said, "There was definitely a ghost — without a shadow of a doubt. I walked up the steps, 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 continued, "I remember thinking I don’t want to come back and I didn’t for a few years.”

She spoke about the incident for a TV documentary called “The Real Camilla”, which followed her life as she turned 70 last July, and aired on ITV on April 23.

In her account, the Duchess later explained that the house had to be exorcised, which had miraculously happened due to the renovation work going on in the palace. She revealed, “I walked in and whatever was there had ­disappeared.”

Dumfries House was in an extremely pathetic state and had required renovations after Prince Charles decided to restore it in 2007 by heading a £45million charity ­purchase.

Dumfries House will open its doors to the public on June 6 for the first time in 250 years.

When the news of the Duchess being scared of ghosts came into the limelight, people did not lose even a moment and jokes about the incident started to crop up on Twitter. And, not so surprisingly, most seem to think its Diana haunting the British Royal.
