Thanks for visiting. It's Five on Friday again, so do pop over to Love Made My Home for the link-up.
Here's a few random photos of Windsor on a beautiful day.
One - Castle
The people below are having a good look at Queen Victoria's statue in Windsor. I wonder if their interest has been sparked by the television series?
Two - The Guildhall
Designed by Sir Christopher Wren, the Guildhall was chosen for the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and for Sir Elton John's civil partnership. It looks like another wedding had just taken place.
Loads of swans, what can I say!!
Four - The bandstand in Alexandra Park
A new bandstand was officially opened by The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh as part of her 90th birthday celebrations earlier this year. It looks like the original Edwardian one but incorporates technology required by modern day performers. On each of the six sides are plaques designed by local schools showing the links between the Queen, the armed forces and Windsor. It must have been spectacular to see the band of the Irish Guards playing in their bright red uniforms and bearskins with 500 schoolchildren singing away.
Five - Pavement Clock
The clock was originally buried in the pavement by a local jeweller and clockmaker to the Queen as an advertising gimmick in 1950 but mysteriously disappeared forty years later. In 2011 a new one was installed along with a time capsule containing items about the town, event programmes and a film clip. When it needs to be serviced - in 50 years time - I wonder what Windsor will look like! No doubt the castle will be much the same having been there for 1,000 years already.
Have a great week!
