Queens boudoir. by happypat

Queens boudoir.

We found our tour round the Royal Yacht Britannia really interesting.
I have quite a few photos of the inside as unusually you were allowed to take photos.
The Queens bedroom was quite plain as you would expect, she doesn’t do fancy but the thing that was the most amazing was the size of hers & Phillip’s beds, three foot wide only!

Three good things:
1. Watching the Hairy Bikers cooking comfort food every afternoon.....yummy!
2. Ordered the turkey.
3. Being able to stay in this afternoon, the weather is terrible! Pouring with rain!
And no pillows? Oh I hope we get the Hairy Bikers.. they are great..

ooh that is small. ooooh your storm, we are getting it as well in a couple of days but we will get snow, or so they say! I like how the jewellery box and the mural on the wall matches!

What a lovely shot. I refuse to believe that Phillip ever slept in there ... I suspect he snoozed elsewhere! I would refuse to sleep with my hubby in a 3-foot bed - I'd never get any sleep as he rumbles around in the night. Raining up north too!

@julzmaioro Yes you’re right but just s little flat pillow perhaps. The Hairy Bikers isn’t a repeat so it might have been on already in NZ if you know them Julz. It’s always on at a time you’re thinking of evening meal!

@huvesaker No wind until tomorrow but it’s so very wet! Coming warmer with the wind so definitely no snow!

I was very surprised when I went on Britania a few years ago. It’s very simple and ordinary and not at all what I expected. I thought it was wonderful. This is a lovely shot.

@happypat minus 10 here at the moment!

What a delightful , uncluttered and tasteful room - I simply love the bed quilt in tune with the mural on the wall and the jewellery box . Nice to look around an nose in places like this -- the reason I love going round NT properties ! Horrible weather here today too -- an indoor day !

@happypat no problems with the long johns on...hahaha

@jamibann ooh the mind boggles to think of them both in that little bed! Straight to the tower! No Phillip.....is it two L’s or one.......has his own little bed in an adjoining room.

@susiemc yes we were surprised too but Queenie is known for her simple tastes!

@beryl you would love it Beryl, fascinating! The laundry room was my favourite, might put that up tomorrow! Weather isn’t fit to go out is it?

@carolmw It was rather Carol, very homily!
November 27th, 2018  
I thought at first that this was one of yours, Pat!!

bep
What a lovely shot!
November 27th, 2018  
Oh what an interesting tour Pat!
November 27th, 2018  
Its so neat and tidy and looks like there is not enough room for Phillip! Only one pillow too! Very elegant!
November 27th, 2018  
@happypat oh.... he has to sleep in the dressing room - typical! But also often found in large mansions!
November 27th, 2018  
Wonderful

This does look kind of sparse. For the Queen, oh my!
November 28th, 2018  
Oh I think this is so lovely and restful
November 28th, 2018  
It does look a bit cramped doesn't it. You would expect more room when you think how much Britannia cost.

@onewing it was bigger than it looks here Babs, all I could fit in, goes further to the left & then a door to Prince Phillips room.

My bed is never that flat and smooth.
