Windsor Castle, Berkshire

Windsor Castle is a medieval castle and an official residence of The Queen in the English county of Berkshire. A Royal home and fortress for over 900 years, the Castle remains a working palace today.
More than five hundred people live and work in Windsor, making it the largest inhabited castle in the world.

The Queen uses the Castle both as a private home, where she usually spends the weekend,
and as a Royal residence at which she undertakes certain formal duties.
