Today, we spent the entire day in Windsor and Eton, where the biggest attraction is the Royal Castle. It took us half an hour to get there from Richmond Station in London.

Windsor Castle claims to be the largest and oldest occupied castle in the world. It has been the official home of England’s royal family for 900 years.

It is the Queen’s home. Buckingham Palace is her office, a place where she works most of the time during the week. She spends her weekends and holidays in Windsor.

Two royal weddings will be celebrated in St. George’s Chapel this year. The first one quite soon, on May 19th.

Both Windsor and Eton are pleasant little towns, worth visiting.

Eton is famous for its college, the most famous high school in Britain. Both princes William and Harry attended this school.

      Krolowa na zdjeciach jest wszedzie, tylko osobiscie nie mozna jej spotkac. Mowia ze jak flaga powiewa na maszcie na Buckingham Palace to znaczy ze krolowa jest obecna w palacu.
