Watch Lulu almost miss the train. We took the train to Windsor Castle.
Today we went to Windsor Castle - didn't we just visit there last August? Yes - but if you got your tickets stamped - it was good for a year - so here we were. We took the train from Paddington Station - it took about an hour.
The queen has a bunch of palaces - but Windsor is her favorite. She liked it so much that she chose Windsor as her last name. There was a stink - because when she married Philip - he was of German ancestry. No one in England wanted a German prince - but she married him anyway.
Windsor Castle is so big - it is in town and in the country. One can walk out of the one gate into the center of town - and to the west you see miles of royal farm land.
On the tour - you go through about 20 formal royal rooms. You do not go into the queen's private residence.
We enjoyed a beautiful day - 75 - sunny - no rain. We enjoyed some royal ice cream on the grounds.
