The Secret to Queen Elizabeth’s Sleep Schedule? A Ridiculously Expensive Bed

Fact: A mattress can make or break your sleep schedule. So, it’s no surprise that Queen Elizabeth invested a large chunk of change to ensure she’s as comfortable as possible.

In fact, the 94-year-old monarch has the third most expensive bed in the world, according to the bed specialists at Mattress Next Day. (It currently resides at the queen’s main residence, Buckingham Palace.)

The mattress is known as the “Royal State Bed” by Savoir. Not only does it cost £125,000 (around $161,000), but it’s also a rare find, since only 60 editions of the bed were made.

Per reports, each mattress took more than 700 hours to make. The materials consist of Latin American horse tail, Mongolian cashmere and 1,600 miles of silk thread from Suffolk. For Queen Elizabeth, Savior enlisted the Royal School of Needlework at Hampton to engrave the royal family’s crest above the bed.

In an interview with the Daily Beast, Alistair Hughes (Savoir’s chief executive officer) confirmed that it’s well worth the money. “Clearly, it’s an expensive bed, there’s no questioning that. But that reflects the work that goes into it, the craftsmanship, and the materials we use,” he said.

As for her competition, the queen’s bed is ranked number three behind Kim Kardashian/Kanye West and Drake. While Drake’s mattress is worth around $392,000, Kardashian and West reportedly spent $968,000 on their bed. (NBD.)
