Prince Charles and Camilla’s surprising sleeping arrangements revealed

Royal protocol dictates that they keep things prim and proper in public, but now what happens behind closed doors with Prince Charles and his wife Camilla has been unveiled.

The couple’s sleeping arrangements at their home in Clarence House in London have been revealed, and they're not as conventional as you might expect.

According to an insider, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall split their time between three bedrooms.

“His Royal Highness has a room with a double bed, decorated to his own taste, then Camilla has her own room with a double bed, decorated just the way she likes it,” the Daily Mail reports the royal insider saying.

“In addition, they have a shared bedroom with a double bed that they can use whenever they like. The arrangement suits them perfectly.”

After tying the knot in 2005, the couple moved into their London residence, but it seems they’re just like everyone else when it comes to storage.

Despite Charles undertaking an extensive renovation in 2002 after the Queen Mother passed away and left the residence open for Charles to move in, wardrobe space is at a premium.

According to the insider, Camilla’s love of fashion has seen she's being forced to store her outfits in communal spaces – and covered by bedsheets as His Royal Highness does not approve of plastic in the house.

“There are now racks of dresses on the landing,” the insider told the publication.

Never fear though, when it all gets too much, the royals can always rely on their royal retreats.

Prince Charles has a home in Highgrove n Gloucestershire, and Camilla favours her Ray Mill house in Wiltshire for spending relaxed time with her children and grandchildren.
