Royal bedrooms are pretty spectacular with plenty of space, decadent décor and grand beds, but the question on everyone's lips is, do royal couples sleep in the same bed?

The Prince and Princess of Wales now live in Adelaide Cottage after relocating from their residence Apartment 1A inside Kensington Palace, and their sleeping arrangements have subsequently changed. While at the palace, the couple's master bedroom was located on the ground floor, with staff occupying the above levels, but now it is more likely they sleep upstairs as most people do.

It has not ever been confirmed whether the couple sleep in the same bed, but considering their new property has just four bedrooms, it does seem very likely.

Just as depicted in the Netflix series, The Crown, it is believed the late Queen Elizabeth II and her late husband Prince Philip did not sleep in the same bed, or even the same room. After all, Buckingham Palace had plenty of rooms for them to choose from – they could have stayed in entirely different wings if they wanted to!

Do King Charles and his wife Queen Consort Camilla follow in the traditions of the late Queen? The royal couple have an array of royal residences up and down the country. They have their main property, Clarence House, in London as well as their country residence, Highgrove House in Gloucestershire.  

It has been rumoured that the King and his wife have three bedrooms, one each and one to share, however this has never (and probably won't ever) been confirmed.

As new generations of the royal family take to the spotlight, we see the way the monarchy works changing, with announcements being made on Instagram and more candid looks into their private lives. So, perhaps the archaic tradition of not sharing a bed is the thing of the past and more modern royals such as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Zara and Mike Tindall do snuggle up together.
