Derry Girls actress Nicola Coughlan has shown glimpses inside her childhood home in Galway, Ireland via social media. The Bridgerton star moved back to her family house after an unsuccessful stint in the UK capital of London. The star opened up to Jonathan Van Ness on his podcast, Getting Curious, about the hardships she faced in the capital.

"I had the worst time of my life," she explained. "It sucked so hard. I found it difficult. I was so lonely when I moved. That was one of the killer things for me. I was like 'I don't like it here because I don't know anyone.' I used to let that city, that whole rat race thing get to me."

Similarly to her co-star Phoebe Dynevor's abode, Nicola's home has a vintage feel to it, but hers is also full of features we've seen many a time in the homes of the royal family. Take a look…

Nicola's living room is decorated with cream walls, while furniture includes a floral sofa and armchair, a wooden coffee table and chest of drawers, and a fringed floor lamp which is just like that of Prince Charles' in his home office.

At Christmas time, Nicola posed alongside her tree and revealed that her living room has baroque print carpet. Again, baroque patterns are seen in everyone from Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla's houses, to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's property in London.

Another photo taken in Nicola's living room showed a vase of flowers kept in a watering jug, which the Duchess of Cornwall also uses to hold flowers in her private study.

Nicola offered a glimpse of her bedroom as she joined a Zoom call during the initial lockdown period. It's decorated with white walls, and furnished with more wooden features including her bed and a chest of drawers. Princess Anne's former flat in Westminster was designed in a similar vein, with a wooden bed frame and bedside table, and a fringed bedside lamp.

In a different area of the home, Nicola posed in a doorway, where various plates and trinkets are displayed within the walls and on an exposed bookshelf at the side. Sophie Wessex previously showed off her kitchen with Prince Edward, where they too display plates and vases in the same way.
