Windsor Castle

Berkshire, England

When Her Majesty the Queen of England isn’t parachuting from helicopters into Olympic venues, she is most likely in her official residence at Windsor Castle. The Royal Standard flag flies from the castle’s Round Tower when she’s in and a Union Jack flies when she’s not.  Walk in her footsteps through the lavishly decorated Semi-State Rooms where she entertains world leaders and the State Apartments that have slept 39 monarchs since the 1600s.
