Windsor Castle.

"On all counts Windsor Castle has an undeniable right to the epithet "Royal." No other word so fitly characterizes that majestic pile of buildings on the western bank of the "silver-streaming Thames;" it is royal in its situation; its memories are of kings and queens. From the days of William the Conqueror to the present occupant of the English throne, through changes of dynasty during nigh nine hundred years, it has been linked with the joys and sorrows, the triumphs and defeats of the royal house of Britain. Here have been born scions of that house; here they have plighted their troth in marriage; here they have lain down to die; here not a few have been committed to their eternal rest." Extract from "Royal Castles of England" (Open Library)
