50 States/50 Countries – Windsor Castle

PICT0731 (2)Everyone is getting excited about the upcoming Royal Wedding (week from Saturday) and the site of the wedding in Windsor Castle, so I thought I’d share a few photos of my visit there during Queen Elizabeth’s 25th Anniversary celebrations…

PICT0713 (2)Notice the date on the banner 1977!

PICT0714 (2)Queen Elizabeth the First (The Virgin Queen)

PICT0720 (2)A busy weekend at Windsor…

PICT0718 (2)Four Musketeers?

PICT0728 (2)When this flag is flying the Queen is in residence…

PICT0716 (3)MAKE WAY!

PICT0717Most folks don’t realize Windsor Castle is huge! (William the Conqueror built it starting in 1017 in the town of Windsor, high above the Thames River, and completing construction 16 years later in 1033 AD).

PICT0726 (2)Inside the walls around the castle keep…

PICT0727 (2)Arrow slots to defend the castle…not today, but a good vantage point to see and hear the band…

PICT0723 (2)Statue of a heraldic symbol…

The marriage chapel is inside and off limits to the general public, so I might as well just cruise on down the Thames to London…

PICT0712 (2)Good Day, Guv’ & Happy Travels!  Rich
