The royal family and ITV’s Love Island may be two very different ends of the British culture spectrum. But it turns out there is an unexpected connection binding the two together. No, this is not a drill. So, what could it possibly be?
Well, as reported by it has been revealed that the Queen has a link to the Majorca villa the Islanders call home as it is owned by a multi-millionaire, who is the husband of one of the monarch’s relatives. In other words, the Love Island villa is basically owned by royalty-ish.
Nikolaus Broschek, the husband of Princess Ingeborg zu Schleswig-Holstein, a fourth great-granddaughter of Queen Victoria is the lucky owner of Casas Rusticas e Historicas de Mallorca and is listed as the sole director of the luxury property made famous by the dating show.
But this isn’t the only fun fact we’ve received about Her Majesty this week. It was recently reported that the Queen doesn’t own a wardrobe, and instead picks her outfits in a unique way.
The monarch’s former royal butler Paul Burrell revealed to Yahoo’s Royal Box that her majesty does not pop on through to her wardrobe to pick her own outfits in the morning like most of us would, but instead has a whole floor of clothing that her dressers will sketch out options from, finally bringing down her chosen ensemble(s) for her to see in real life.
‘She has to have her outfits brought down to her, all her clothes are kept on the top floor,’ he said.
‘Her dresser will bring down in the morning two outfits, which are sketched with pieces of material clipped to them so that the Queen can remember whether it’s silk or cotton or wool.’
He added: ‘The one the Queen picks is the one which is brought downstairs from up above so she doesn’t actually see her wardrobe with clothes in it.’
We wouldn’t expect anything less!
