Windsor Castle Platinum Jubilee
Windsor Castle for the Platinum Jubilee: The Queen's Coronation with time at leisure in Windsor.
Windsor Castle: Platinum Jubilee: The Queen's CoronationWindsor Castle, the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world, is one of the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen. The Castle's dramatic site encapsulates 900 years of British history. It covers an area of 26 acres and contains, as well as a royal palace, a magnificent chapel and the homes and workplaces of a large number of people. Your visit to Windsor Castle includes the State Rooms and St George's Chapel where the weddings of Prince Harry and Princess Eugenie took place in 2018. In celebration of The Queen's historic Platinum Jubilee in 2022, Windsor Castle will host a special display commemorating Her Majesty's Coronation at Westminster Abbey on 2 June 1953. On display will be the Coronation Dress and Robe of Estate worn by The Queen that day. Designed by the British couturier Sir Norman Hartnell, the dress was created in the finest white duchesse satin, richly embroidered in a lattice-work effect with an iconographic scheme of national and Commonwealth floral emblems in gold and silver thread and pastel-coloured silks, encrusted with seed pearls, sequins and crystals. Her Majestys Robe of Estate was made by the royal robe-makers Ede and Ravenscroft of purple silk velvet woven by the firm of Warner & Sons, and was embroidered at the Royal School of Needlework. The goldwork embroidery design features wheat ears and olive branches, symbolising prosperity and peace, surrounding the crowned intertwined EIIR cipher. It took 12 embroideresses, using 18 different types of gold thread, more than 3,500 hours to complete the work between March and May 1953. Please note the drop off point is the coach park in the centre of town, and does involve an uphill walk to the castle.
