The Queen's 1,000-room home, Windsor Castle is the perfect place for the 96-year-old to relax in between royal engagements.

Much of Her Majesty's royal residence has been photographed, revealing gilded glamour and luxurious furnishings, and the Royal Collection Trust has revealed one of the eye-popping bedrooms at the castle on Instagram.

The photograph was taken inside of the King's Bedchamber featuring a mind-blowing bed which was originally made for Queen Victoria’s uncle, George IV and was used at Carlton House.

The grand canopy hanging above the four-poster bed is the most captivating element, in contrasting colours of green and purple. Look closely and you'll see the crown at the top complete with ostrich feather detail!

While it's not the monarch's personal bed, we're still quite surprised to see a creation as zany as this inside the walls of a royal residence.

Fans were blown away by the bed, taking to the comments section to express their thoughts.

"The canopy makes the bed look so tiny," one pointed out. "It's so beautiful," penned another, while a third wrote: "Magnificent."

The caption of the striking image read: "When Napoleon III visited Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle in 1855, this bed was specially re-upholstered in his personal colours – purple and green. A magnificent ostrich-feather plume crowns the silk canopy.

"The bed originally belonged to Queen Victoria’s uncle, George IV, and was made for his bedroom at Carlton House in London in the 1780s. Today you can see it in the King’s Bedchamber on a visit to Windsor Castle."
