* Founded by William the Conqueror in the 11th century, it is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world, according to the Royal Collection Trust website. It has been home to 40 monarchs, including Queen Elizabeth.

* Work began on St. George’s Chapel in 1475 under Edward IV, and it contains relics including the Gneth Cross, which according to legend includes part of the cross on which Jesus was crucified, and a sword that Edward III supposedly used in the battle.

* Queen Elizabeth commissioned the King George VI Memorial Chapel, named after her father, which stands next to the choir of the main chapel, in 1962. It is where he and his wife, the Queen Mother, are buried, along with his youngest daughter. Princess Margaret.

* The coffin of Elizabeth’s husband, Prince Philip, who died on April 9, 2021, last year, has been stored in a Royal Vault so he can be buried alongside the queen.
