We never expected King Charles to influence how we decorate our bedrooms, but in 2023’s most unexpected twist, his Sandringham estate launched a mattresses and bedding collection that might just change how we sleep.
Located in Norfolk, around 110 miles from London, the Sandringham Estate is one of King Charles’ most beloved royal residences – famously playing host to the family over the Christmas holiday. However, it is about to become associated with some of the best mattresses and bedding on the market.
Sandringham announced its partnership with Wrought Iron and Brass Bed Co. and Baavet Wool Duvets, who will use wool from King Charles' sheep to create luxury mattresses and bedding to mark Wool Month and encourage us to 'get cozy' for fall.

'It’s time to celebrate Wool Month and welcome the new season – we’re excited to share our very special collection of British-made mattresses and bedding crafted with authentic British wool,' Sandringham and the bedding company shared.
'We’ve created a truly unique series of products made with the highest quality material and care – all certified by Made in Britain. Join us this month as we honor the beauty of authentic British-made, British wool products and gear up for a cozy autumn.'
As mentioned, the collection pays homage to locally sourced wool from the sheep owned by King Charles. However, the collaboration also encourages us to shop sustainably and invest in eco-friendly bedding that will stand the test of time. However, this will come as no surprise to followers of King Charles, as the monarch is a known champion for environmental issues.

In recent years alone, King Charles has spent time campaigning for conservation, organic farming, and other eco-causes – and much of his work takes place from his royal residences. Alongside this recent work at Sandringham, the monarch uses the weeds from his official home, Highgrove House, to create clothing with fashion designers Vin+Omi.
'The greatest challenge we face is to reform our relationship with nature, to put sustainability at the heart of our economy, and to recognize that the conservation of nature is not a luxury but a necessity,' the King once shared in a statement regarding the environment.
So, while we can't be certain that King Charles will use this mattress and bedding every night, we'd be surprised if they weren't used somewhere around Sandringham. And, as the estate reminds us, there's no better time to invest than this fall.
