While the royal family's living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens have given us an unprecedented insight into their home lives over the years, their bedrooms bare all. The fact that Prince Harry kept a photograph of his mother Diana on his bedside table at boarding school was a testament to his loving nature; that Princess Diana, meanwhile, plastered her walls inside Kensington Palace with pictures of her sons corroborated her devotion to being a mother.

A post shared by Diana's Army (@princess.diana.of.wales) on

Instagram fan account @princess.diana.forever shared a series of photos of Diana's bedrooms over the years. The caption outlines which room is which, but the biggest takeaway is the evidence of her sons Prince William and Prince Harry; she had photos on the walls, in frames on her desk and stuffed toys for them to play with. She also had a photograph of herself and Prince Charles framed on the bedside table in the royal yacht.

2. Prince Harry

When Prince Harry completed his studies at Eton Boarding School, he posed for a series of photographs inside his room. Students were allowed to decorate their spaces themselves, and Harry did so with several posters including a Union Jack flag, and what seems to be a photograph of singer Pink. He also had a large music stereo in the room, and, of course, a framed photograph of his mother Diana on his desk.

Just before Prince Charles bought Highgrove House in the Cotswolds in August 1980, a photograph of the yellow bedroom inside was released. It features patterned wallpaper, a large fireplace, and several floral accents including a bed frame, curtains and armchair. He now uses the property as a country retreat with the Duchess of Cornwall.

Prince William and Prince Harry were photographed inside their nursery at Apartments 8 and 9 at Kensington Palace in October 1985. They lived there with their mother and father Princess Diana and Prince Charles, and Diana was responsible for designing the home alongside interiors expert Dudley Poplak. Prince William and Prince Harry's room took up the entire top floor of the home, and featured a red, white and green colour scheme, with strawberry print carpet.
