- Royal Family members we dream about are more commonplace than ever before.
- Watching shows like Netflix's Bridgerton and The Crown means we've got royals on the brain, but the most dreamed about royal is not who you'd expect.
- This royal news comes as it's revealed Princess Anne makes ‘devastating’ admission during a rare podcast appearance.
Royal Family members we dream about can reveal a lot about ourselves.
With more than a fifth of us regularly dreaming of royalty thanks to the likes of popular regency series such as Bridgerton and The Crown not to mention sleeping on the best pillows, experts have analyzed what our dreams really mean.
And according to the study carried out by luxury specialists The French Bedroom Company, the members that make the most appearances may surprise you!
With 1,002 Brits quizzed to find out which Royals we’ve been dreaming about and whether the release of The Crown and Bridgerton has had an impact.

With 12% saying they’ve had a dream come true, and 27% in a relationship with the person of their dreams, will 2021 be the start of a happy ending?
Charles, Prince of Wales, Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, and Diana, Princess of Wales are most likely to appear in our dreams. And with Diana a focal point in the storyline of the recent Crown series it comes as no surprise that she is the third royal on people's minds.

The Duchess, otherwise known as Kate, is yet to make an appearance in The Crown, with fans speculating if the sixth and final series will include the love story of Will and Kate. But in recent years she's become the nation’s sweetheart as she takes centre stage in a variety of charitable events and tours.
But surprisingly it's Prince Charles who came out on top with 16% of the vote - making him the most likely royal to be dreamt about. So why Charles? Well, experts claim it could be jealousy or admiration for the reason behind them being on our minds as we sleep.
Antonia Harman, healer and dream expert at Divine Empowerment, explained, “If we dream of famous people or Royals, what elements of their character do you more admire or loath? What is related in your own life? It’s really about how you see that person and what is potentially lacking in you.”

Analyzing the findings, Antonia Harmen explained, “Dreams are often a guide to things that need addressing in the waking world, so take some time to really look at what your dream means and allow your intuition to guide you, that will make dream analysis personal to you.”
Broken down by age, millennials aged 25-34 are most likely to be dreaming of Royals with over half (52%) dreaming of the Royal Family. For them, Prince Charles and Catherine Duchess of Cambridge are the most popular to appear in dreams with 13% of the vote.
Co-founder and creative director at The French Bedroom Company, Georgia Metcalfe, added, “In light of our research, it’s interesting to see that so many of us are having Royal dreams, either a reflection of the Netflix series or dreaming of becoming a future King or Queen. With over a quarter of us in a relationship with the person of our dreams, hopefully, there are many more happy endings to come.
She advised, "To reveal what more this could show about your emotions and your inner-self, try writing your dreams down when you wake up to keep track of any recurring themes and stop you from forgetting.”
