The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have just finished their royal tour using the Royal Train, which saw them travel 1,250 miles over three days to visit people across the UK and thank them for their efforts throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

But according to reports, the royal couple slept in separate single beds while on the train, as the royal suite they used has two single “his and hers” style single beds rather than a double.

This could be due to the fact that the Queen and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, are said to prefer sleeping separately.

In fact, the couple’s compartment on the train was reported to have a private bathtub and a dining room that would seat twelve, as well as the “his and hers” beds. It’s been reported that there are no showers on the train, just the bath which has special lines drawn on to stop it from splashing if overfilled.

Kate and Wills were touring the UK this week and were spotted putting on a rare display of affection.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, both 38, were seen exchanging a loving glance as they visited Euston Station in London.

The couple appeared close as they looked around the station and chatted to staff before stepping on the royal train to start their three-day tour.

The royal couple also left a message on the station’s chalk board before leaving.

They wrote: “Thank you to all transport workers everywhere for keeping the country moving throughout this difficult year.

“Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!” before signing the board with: “Catherine” and “Wills”.

During the three day tour, Kate and Wills travelled around the UK meeting front-line workers, volunteers, care home staff, teachers, school kids and young people to talk to them about their experiences during the coronavirus pandemic.

The royal couple hoped to pass on the nation’s thanks for the tireless efforts made throughout the pandemic.

The 1,250 mile-journey included stops in England, Scotland and Wales.

It was the first time that the couple travelled around the country on the Royal Train.

Used since the Queen’s Silver Jubilee in 1977, the Royal Train is thought to be more functional than fancy.

Queen Victoria first introduced a Royal Train to the British monarchy and back in the 1800s, the carriages were a grand affair with sapphire blue furnishings and quilted walls and ceilings!
