818 – Windsor Castle

Just want to say Thank you to Mark for last nights guest blog. He’s been itching to do it for a while, and last nights effoerts was a worthy result.

Windsor castle is a very active institution. The Coldstream Guards are on duty 24 hours and the King was in residence for part of our day – we think he was probably getting ready for today’s remembrance ceremony in London. He’d gone by the time we were leaving the castle, sadly, we didn’t see him.

We did get to see a fair bit of the castle. We particularly wanted to visit St Georg’s Chapel to pay our respect to Queen Elizabeth II, and it was an honour to have the chance to do that. We had to queue, but it wasn’t for long perhaps 30 minutes at the most. It really was quite moving to see the marble slab covering access to the vault where she is interred.

From the Chapel we moved to the State Apartments, these are not as lived in today, by Kings and Queens through time. I was particularly impressed with St George’s Hall, which was destroyed by fire in 1992. If not told or aware, you would not know that. The room was immaculate.

Queen Mary’s Doll House, if a fascinating piece of engineering, for a dolls house it is huge, and is well worth seeing. and for the 1920’s a masterpiece of engineering.

It really was a fascinating day.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
