The Queen received the playhouse as a gift nearly 90 years ago and now the royal children also enjoy using it when they visit their great-grandmother in Windsor. It has now become a royal favourite as the monarch’s children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren are know to have enjoyed the miniature house which is fitted with running water, electricity, a fully-functioning kitchen and bathroom, as well as a living room and bedroom. Queen Elizabeth II lived at the Royal Lodge in the Berkshire town throughout her childhood with her sister Princess Margaret where they spent a huge amount of their time in a stylish playhouse.
In 1932, the people of Wales gifted the monarch an eye-catching life-sized playhouse when she was six-years-old.
As children then-Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret were often pictured playing in and around the home, with photographs showing its white frames, coordinating door and a thatched roof.
The playhouse is also surrounded by a brick wall with two concrete balls and leads up onto a pristine garden.
Due to security reasons, the Royal Family are not normally able to accept gifts from the public.
But since the playhouse was given to the Queen herself and not the Royal Collection Trust, the 94-year-old monarch has been able to hang onto the precious gift ever since.
Now the impressive playhouse is still coming to good use, with the Queen’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren enjoying their time in it.
Prince William and Kate’s children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis are known to play in and around the home, Hello! magazine has reported.
Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will also likely be a big fan of the playhouse when Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle bring their young son back to the UK for a holiday to see his family.

“It’s the most glamorous wendy house ever, but it’s really beautiful and what you’re seeing now is after a year’s renovation process.
“It’s been completely re-thatched, new curtains, new wiring, a bit of a spruce up really! All the little china and glass was created especially for the house.”
Beatrice even added that while the Queen may have long passed her playhouse phase, she feels very passionately about it.
The princess added: “She still likes to come back and visit. Granny was very clear that for all the fabric she wanted very little designs.
“It’s such a little house that she wanted little flowers and patterns. It’s beautiful.
“I’ve been lucky enough to play here and now Granny’s a great-granny, so now the great-grandchildren can enjoy it too.”
