The grand canopy hanging above the four-poster bed is the most captivating element, in contrasting colors of green and purple. Look closely and you’ll see the crown at the top complete with ostrich feather detail!

While it’s not the monarch’s personal bed, we’re still quite surprised to see a creation as zany as this inside the walls of a royal residence.

Fans were blown away by the bed, taking to the comments section to express their thoughts.
“The canopy makes the bed look so tiny,” one pointed out. “It’s so beautiful,” penned another, while a third wrote: “Magnificent.”

The caption of the striking image read: “When Napoleon III visited Queen Victoria at Windsor Castle in 1855, this bed was specially re-upholstered in his personal colors – purple and green. A magnificent ostrich-feather plume crowns the silk canopy.

“The bed originally belonged to Queen Victoria’s uncle, George IV, and was made for his bedroom at Carlton House in London in the 1780s. Today you can see it in the King’s Bedchamber on a visit to Windsor Castle.”
