"Good to see things are still in order," wrote Lady Amelia, who is the daughter of the Earl and Countess of St Andrews.

WATCH: Lady Amelia Windsor's most jaw-dropping outfits
We can't help but wonder if Lady Amelia's interior design choices in her home today were influenced by her wendy house as a child – considering her kitchen features a traditional black AGA oven and various hand-painted plates hanging on the walls, it's very possible!
Speaking of her retro home, Amelia previously told House & Garden: "We have things that we've collected over the years and beautiful trinkets alongside treasures which I've found in Portobello and Golbourne markets."

Gallery: Inside The One Show host Alex Jones' stunning London family home (Hello!)
Alex Jones has been continued to present The One Show in the BBC studios amid the coronavirus pandemic, rather than present from home like many stars did. The Welsh TV presenter lives in London in a Victorian house that she renovated with her husband Charlie Thomson in 2016 before they moved in. The couple have maintained many of the period features in their home, but stylish touches including their gorgeous green kitchen, cosy living room and Scandi-inspired bedroom add a modern spin.

Alex revealed a rare peek inside her son Teddy's bedroom in August, as she helped him to try on some new shoes. The room appears to be painted cream with a white wooden dressing table against one wall, and a matching wardrobe on another. The youngster's books are neatly-organised in a wall-mounted shelving unit next to the wardrobe, while a huge giraffe toy rests up against the wardrobe in the background.

The room also has a grey armchair, which has no doubt come in handy for feeding and relaxing with Teddy and his younger brother Kit over the past few years. The high-backed chair has been topped with a grey fringed blanket and a second herringbone blanket to ensure they are always warm and cosy. Keep clicking to see more of Alex Jones' house...
Alex shared a rare look inside her garden during the coronavirus lockdown, showing her wooden shed with a window box, and the array of toys for her sons Kit and Teddy on the lawn. The toddlers have a plastic slide, paddling pool and sand and water table to choose from.
Lucky Teddy perched at the breakfast bar in the kitchen to open all of his birthday presents in January, and we couldn't help but notice the luxurious parquet flooring Alex has, as well as some clever hidden storage, with shelving built into the island unit to store all of her cookbooks.

Alex gave fans a peek inside her living room over Christmas, after painstakingly re-decorating her Christmas tree when it fell over. The room looks so cosy and inviting, with sage green walls and ambient lighting from vintage-style wall lights and table lamps.
How beautiful is Alex’s bedroom? The stylish space features Scandi-inspired interiors, with a grey upholstered headboard and plain white bedding, with white wooden floorboards and shutters that match perfectly with the minimalistic theme.
The couple's bedroom has a similar neutral colour scheme with white bedding and white painted floors. While Alex has focused on her book in this photo, she does inadvertently showcase an ornate floor-standing mirror, along with Teddy's cot, which sits next to the bed.
Alex has also given fans a peek inside her living room with this photo of Charlie and Teddy spending some quality time on the sofa. The couple have opted for a muted colour scheme with plush grey sofas and walls, which are offset by wooden flooring and white fittings.
Another photo shared from the living room showed Alex installing their Snuz UK cot as they prepared to welcome their son. It also gave a glimpse at their fireplace, which has a marble surround, along with two white shelves that have been hung in an alcove and are decorated with books and family photos.
The kitchen appears to be the heart of the family home, with Alex often posting photos from the beautifully decorated room, with green painted cupboards and sweet baby photos of Teddy on display. MORE: How to recreate Alex Jones' stylish kitchen
Although Alex’s home typically looks clean and tidy, she showed that she’s just like any other mum after toddler Teddy caused this chaotic scene in the kitchen one morning. Teddy's high chair could be seen still set up from breakfast, alongside a small table and pushchair. Meanwhile, his toys, including pieces of a wooden train set, were scattered across the herringbone wooden flooring, showing he had been busy playing throughout the morning.
Alex's kitchen is fitted with statement green cupboards and white marble worktops. White glossy tiles line the walls, while a wooden island sits at the centre of the room. This photo, showing Alex's husband preparing food for their baby boy, gives a glimpse at some of their kitchen appliances – including a Philip's Avent Steriliser for preparing Teddy's bottles.
In another photo, Alex revealed her obsession with decanters, joking: "If you fancy a sherry at Christmas, you know where to come". The kitchen island was lined with at least nine decorative glass decanters, all of which were empty.
Alex and Charlie moved out of the property for ten months in 2016 to have it renovated, with the 40-year-old telling fans she "couldn't be happier" with the result. This photo gave another glimpse at the kitchen, showing a separate wine fridge and a new Dualit kettle and toaster.
The TV presenter had shown off the renovations on Instagram only a week earlier, telling her 92,000 followers that she was "excited to go home again after months of renovation". The work surfaces and cupboards were covered in plastic sheets and boxes, but it wasn't long before the finished result was unveiled.
Alex's bathroom features similar tiling to the kitchen, with grey grouting to offset the glazed white tiles. A towel rail stands at the end of the white free-standing bathtub, and a bath caddy holds Alex's sponge and body wash - & Other Stories Bonbon Tree body wash, which costs £7.
In another Instagram post, Alex revealed that she follows the Marie Kondo method for decluttering her home. Sharing a photo of the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, Alex wrote: "This book was the best present. If you like order at home and you want to be clutter free, this is a must read."
