Who is The Queen?

What are The Queen’s favourite hobbies and how would it feel to wear her Coronation robe and crown? What does The Queen do in the splendid rooms we see at the Castle today and how can we tell if she is there?  What does she do to make someone a knight at Windsor and why does she meet so many people each year? 

Children are inspired to use role play and lots of imagination to find the answers to these and many other questions in our lively hands-on session, which explores The Queen’s life and work during her long reign of more than 60 years.

For groups with a maximum of 32 pupils, the session is held in the magnificent setting of the State Apartments on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  For groups between 33 and 60 it takes place on Mondays and Fridays in the Moat Room, our dedicated learning room.
