Windsor Castle will reopen for first time since Queen's death to the public


Windsor Castle is set to reopen to the public for the first time since Her Majesty passed away on September 8. Both the castle and St George’s Chapel will be open, with the public able to see the ledger stone inscribed with her name in the King George VI Memorial Chapel.

The castle and St George’s Chapel will open at 10am on Thursday.

Entrance to the chapel is included in a ticket for Windsor Castle, which costs £26.50 for adults during the week and £28.50 on Saturdays.

A child’s ticket cost £14.50 during the week and £15.50 on Saturday.

The royals have also resumed normal public duties this week as their official mourning period came to an end.

They had only been continuing with certain appropriate activities and wearing all black since the Queen passed away at Balmoral earlier this month.

But from Tuesday they were able to return to their official roles, with the new Prince and Princess of Wales making their first visit to the country since receiving their new titles.

Kate and William visited Anglesey, where they lived during the early years of their marriage, and then the city of Swansea.

While in Swansea they visited St Thomas Church, an organisation which carries out charitable community work in the area.

It has been reported that the Prince and Princess of Wales will focus on deepening the trust and respect of the people of Wales, according to Sky News.

A royal source said after the Queen’s death: “The new Princess of Wales appreciates the history associated with this role but will understandably want to look to the future as she creates her own path.”

William and Kate are expected to make more official visits to Wales as part of their new roles.
