Scope and content

This is the bed Prince Charles just bought for his wife Lady Di from an antique dealer of Conquereuil, Western France. The antique canopy bed was once owned by the favourite mistress of French King Henri II, Diane de Poitiers. Jose David, the dealer who sold the bed, declined to say for how much but added that Charles purchased it as a gift for Diana to celebrate the birth of their first child
