News: Healthbeds gets royal seal of approval


A national newspaper reports this week on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge ordering a marital bed from Rotherham-based experts, Healthbeds.

Dating back to 1893, Healthbeds at Thurcroft is a family business based on craftmanship, making beds in Britain to exacting standards with up to 3,000 individual nested springs or 6,000 individual pocketed springs that mould to the body profile. Technologically advanced fillings are used to help allergy and asthma sufferers get a good night's sleep.

Healthbeds is a founder member of the Sleep Council and a corporate Member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen.

The story goes that after being impressed with the bed at their rented Anglesey farmhouse, William and Kate tracked down the exact model so that it can be installed at their new Kensington Palace apartment.

David Smeaton, managing director at Healthbeds, told The Daily Mail: "We got a call out of the blue from one of the Duchess's staff asking if we could provide one like the model they slept in.

"I think it's the first time the royals have bought one of our beds. The Duchess loved the bed so much, apparently she looked under the mattress to find a label to discover where it was made. We are thrilled to have royalty buying one of our beds."

The bespoke bed is set to be placed inside a four-poster setting before the new parents move in.

News on whether the Princess will be able to feel a pea placed under the mattress by The Queen is sure to follow.
