A bed fit for a queen

Hypnos is the only bed manufacturer to supply the Royal Family. This is one of their beds.

You’d think a country with a queen would have a queen bed, but no.

British mattress sizes aren’t the same as American mattress sizes (even though they use many of the same terms – well, aside from “queen”). Their sizes are as follows:

Single bed: Close to our twin size, but a little smaller

Double bed: Close to our double/full size

King bed: A little smaller than our queen size

Super King bed: A little smaller than our king size

Confused yet? Yeah, me too.
