When it comes to furniture, there are few pieces of more interest than that of royalty. Perhaps the most appealing and that which holds the most intrigue belongs to the Queen of England and her heirs. But, is it appreciated by the owner as much as it would be by so many around the world? The Queen herself sets out to answer those questions in a new book, titled “Does the Queen Wear Her Crown In Bed?” — a fully illustrated children’s book. As its release is announced throughout the world, many curious individuals are also taking a close look at the living arrangements of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate, who do make an appearance in the Queen’s book.
In April of this year, it was announced that the couple would make their first home in Clarence House, already occupied by Prince Harry. ABC News ran video of this magnificent palace just before the wedding was to take place. However, more recent news releases share information regarding the newlyweds’ decision to rent a much less trumpeted two-bedroom cottage, called Nottingham Cottage. Despite the simplicity of its nickname, NotCot is anything but quaint, designed with the classic Royal flair, which the couple seems to enjoy, as they have done little to redesign the space, except a new coat of paint.
Ornately carved furniture pieces, classic dining room set, traditional fabrics, and ornamental pieces seem to drip regal beauty. However, the lush bedding of Not Cot is only a temporary stop for the Duke and Dutchess, who, as it is reported, will soon choose an even more glamorous spot within the Kensington Palace compound.
While the Queen’s book makes no mention of the Royal couple’s real living habits, it does provide a little more insight to a very appealing way of life for many. By the way, for those who were wondering, it turns out that the Queen does not wear her crown to bed.
