There's a funny scene in which Mary chides her father about sleeping in the same bed as her mom, and he responds, "I always keep the dressing room bed made up so I at least pretend we sleep in separate rooms.

Queen Victoria and Albert were among the upper class couples of the time to sleep in separate beds, and even today Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are known to have this arrangement.
