King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla have been married for 17 years. Even though it’s not as long as the marriages of other royal couples, it’s almost guaranteed that the monarch and his wife will be together for as long as they live.

King Charles And Queen Consort Camilla Use 3 Bedrooms At Clarence House?
According to Express, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla’s secret to their long-lasting marriage has to do with the fact that they use three bedrooms inside Clarence House.
Other royal couples, like Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, have two separate bedrooms where they sleep at night. But King Charles and Queen Consort have three.
“[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. In addition, they have a shared bedroom with a double bed that they can use whenever they like. The arrangement suits them perfectly,” a source said.
Queen Consort Camilla’s Clothes Are Covered By Bedsheets?
Since moving to Clarence House in 2005, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla already had this setup, and it works well for them. So, it is highly likely for the couple to still use three bedrooms when they move to Buckingham Palace.
According to Yahoo! News, Queen Consort Camilla’s love of fashion meant that she has so many pieces of clothing stored at home. And since there’s not enough space, some of her outfits are stored in communal spaces. They are also covered by bedsheets because King Charles doesn’t allow the use of plastic at home.
Royal Couples Like Queen Elizabeth And Prince Philip Slept In Separate Bedrooms
Prince Philip’s cousin, Lady Pamela Hicks, previously explained why the queen and the Duke of Edinburgh slept in separate bedrooms.
“In England, the upper class always have had separate bedrooms. You don’t want to be bothered with snoring or someone flinging a leg around. Then when you are feeling cozy you share your room sometimes. It is lovely to be able to choose,” she said (via Woman and Home).
Miami-based entrepreneur Eric Borukhin also told Vanity Fair the same thing.
“It’s a matter of convenience if you can afford it. If you can have that extra room, it’s basically a luxury. Everybody accepts it as a normal thing,” he said.
However, younger royal couples like Prince William and Kate Middleton, as well as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, are known to share only one bedroom.
