In February 2017, Royal Mail are releasing a set of stamps celebrating Windsor Castle, the historical seat of the Monarchy. What better way to honour the first century of this illustrious Royal House than with this superb cover celebrating the castle and it namesake - The House of Windsor.
Windsor Castle is the oldest inhabited castle in the world and the Queen’s home. Following the celebrations of her 90th birthday last year why not celebrate our wonderful Windsor Castle collectable.

Founded by William the Conqueror in around 1080, Windsor Castle is the oldest inhabited castle in the world, and The Queen’s home. Our photographic celebration explores iconic views and some of the sumptuous interiors. 2017 also marks the 25th anniversary of the devastating fire, which was the spur to the extraordinary rebuilding and refurbishment that almost 1m visitors a year enjoy. The fire at Windsor broke out in the morning of 20 November 1992 and was finally extinguished fifteen hours later. One hundred and fifteen rooms were destroyed or very badly damaged by the fire and over a million gallons of water were pumped into the fabric of the building. The process of clearing, drying out, rebuilding and redecorating the damaged structure was completed exactly five years later.
