I just watched a tour of Windsor Castle. How the Queen lives.
The castle is positively stunning. A flag is raised for the Queen when she is in residence or as we might say here, when she’s home. :) There are over 300 people on staff at Windsor. Housekeepers, a man in charge of the clocks themselves, a fendersmith to care for over 300 fireplaces. I’ve never heard the term “Fendersmith” until today. :) There are employees in charge of the amazing antiques. If you are a guest at Windsor, your luggage is meticulously unpacked and repacked for you. Should your clothing accompany a plastic hanger, it will most definitely be changed for you. The service provided for each guest of Windsor likely won’t be comparable anywhere else in the world. Most of the staff @ Windsor is made up of retired soldiers or family that has worked there for generations. I’d personally be happy to accept a position there!
I was very impressed by the Chef and kitchen staff. The detail that went into a dinner party thrown for the french president was quite incredible. They even measured the exact distance between each chair, not that it’s suprising. :) Extraordinary attention to every detail, and missing absolutely nothing. They‘re extremely precise.
The tour also showed the grounds of Windsor as well as the beautiful prize winning horses that belong to the Queen. She named them all herself. (The brown & white paint horse is my favorite!!) She even has them serenaded by carolers at christmas time. Can you imagine living like she does?
