The Castle was founded back in the C11th by William the Conqueror and has since been the home to 39 monarchs. It is known to be one of the Queen’s favourite royal residences. Her Majesty spent a large part of lockdown at Windsor and often stays there at weekends as well, work permitting.

Its stunning grounds and collections of art and treasures make it also a very popular tourist attraction.

Under consideration are Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Balmoral, Sandringham and Clarence House.
