The Princess and the Pea

I am sure most will be familiar with the fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea"

The woman who purports to be a Princess sleeps on a bed with twenty mattresses and twenty feather beds on it - and underneath all those -unbeknown to her- is a pea. In the morning, she complained of a bad night's sleep due to something in the bed bruising her back.
Thus her Prince knew she was a Princess.

This morning I stripped our bed for laundry, neatly folding the duvet and fleece throws and placing them in a stack on the end of the bed.
When I returned a little while later - what did I find?

A certain little girl who looked so regal and imperious, she put me in mind of the Princess!
