We've been treated to more glimpses behind closed doors at royal residences than ever before as the royals have increasingly worked from home since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, showcasing everywhere from their home offices to their kitchens.

But one of the lesser-seen areas of royal homes are their bedrooms, and while we know that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have an unusual sleep set-up at their Kensington Palace home, some of these other royal bedrooms are more relatable than you might think.

From Prince Harry's student bedroom to Zara Tindall's former digs, take a tour of eight private royal bedrooms…

1. Princess Diana

View post on Instagram

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.

3. Prince Charles and Camilla

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.

4. Prince William and Prince Harry

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.

5. Earl Charles Spencer

Princess Diana's brother Charles Spencer now owns their childhood home Althorp House in Northamptonshire. An exhibition dedicated to Diana was unveiled in 2000, including a look at a state bedroom inside, which Charles may now use for himself. It features grand high ceilings, with orange baroque wallpaper, and a four-poster bed with blue velvet covers.

6. The Queen Mother

The Queen Mother's bedroom in the Castle of Mey in Caithness was opened to the public when the property launched in-person tours. The cosy space features a cornflower blue colour palette, including floral curtains, cabriole-leg chairs and a dressing table with a glass top.

7. Lady Amelia Windsor

The Queen's granddaughter Zara Tindall lives on Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park estate in Gloucestershire, but before they moved in 2013, the couple lived in a £1.69million mansion in Cheltenham.

In total, the home has seven bedrooms, including an impressive master suite, previously occupied by Mike and Zara. It features three enormous bay windows with sash shutters and opaque white blinds, and is decorated with cream walls and wooden floors. So chic!
