Windsor Castle State Apartments
Windsor Castle has housed the elite for over 1,000 years, having been built in the 11th century by William the Conqueror. You can see each of the 39 monarchs’ marks on the Castle as you move through the lavish state rooms within the residence. One of the major additions was the paintings on the ceilings by Antonio Verrio and carvings by the famed Grinling Gibbons - both of these additions were done at the behest of King Charles II.
The Queen's Presence Chamber, the Queen's Audience Chamber and the King's Dining Room are some of the rooms in these apartments. These days, most of the apartments are used by the royals to host events for their charities and other organizations.
