The bed in the Princess Royal's Room was copied from Lutyens' design for his eldest daughter's bed, which in turn was inspired by the four-poster bed in Vittore Carpaccio's painting The Dream of St Ursula (1495). Although it has since disintegrated, an organic miniature pea once sat under the mattress.
