The Queen was once caught in bed with a “naked” Prince Philip by an embarrassed staff member, according to a royal biography.

According to Young Prince Philip: His Turbulent Early Life, Her Majesty and the Duke of Edinburgh entered Clarence House during the early years of their marriage.

The royal couple shared many happy hours together in private, but reportedly got interrupted once, Philip Eade suggests in the 2011 book.

“Philip had his own bedroom next to Elizabeth’s, an arrangement common to a great many upper-class couples at the time,” Mr Eade wrote.

A door was reportedly installed between the wall separating the two bedrooms Daily Star.

Mr Eade continued: “The dressing tables in each of their rooms were placed close enough to the connecting door for them to talk to each other while dressing.”

Historian Robert Lacey told the author that the royal couple “enjoyed the visitation rituals that this system involves”.

Philip’s valet, John Dean, described this period as the couple’s “happiest.”

The pair reportedly spent many hours together, joking through the door.

Mr Eade was told by another valet, James Macdonald, that he went into Philip’s room one morning and saw the Princess “in her husband’s bed”.

The biographer said: “While she was wearing her usual silk nightgown, Prince Philip appeared to be naked.”

It was reported that Philip regularly refused to wear pajamas.
