Lovely to see our neighbours getting together for coffee!
'As part of Remembrance Week, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex paid a surprise visit to a weekly coffee morning in Windsor organised for Army families from the Coldstream Guards and the Welsh Guards whose loved ones are currently deployed overseas in Kenya and the Falkland Islands. During the visit, Their Royal Highnesses had an opportunity to learn about the unique challenges of military family life, as well as the social networks that exist to support families during deployments. - @armyinlondon'

๐Ÿฆ
After delighting thousands of lion fans from all over the world this summer, itโ€™s time to say farewell to the @lionsofwindsor pride at the 'Lions Roar Goodbye' auction preview weekend on 9th-10th November. The fabulous felines will return to the Lion's Den on 1st and 3rd November for artists to groom to tip-top condition for the 'Lions Roar Goodbye' weekend at the ex-Fenwick store in @windsoryards.

The fabulous 'Lions of Windsor & Maidenhead 2019' sculptures, which adorned the streets of the Royal Borough for three months this summer/autumn and delighted millions of residents and visitors to the region, are available to buy at the charity auction at the @therunnymede hotel on Thursday 28th November. The auction will be conducted by the charismatic Hugh Creasy fromย Christie's and the evening's host is renowned broadcaster and actor Tim Brooke-Taylor OBE. The evening will also feature live performances by West End 'Lion King' and 'Motown' musical stars David Albury and Cherelle Williams and fun activities including a 'Lucky Simba' prize tree, an exhibition of winning images from Tusk'sย Year of the Lion Photo Competition, 'pin the tail on the lion' competition (closest wins a 30cm mini-lion!), designer face-decoration and a raffle for the chance to win a full size blank lion sculpture and other fabulous prizes.

If you're out in @windsorgreatpark today, listen out for the rattle of chains and a huntsman's horn and keep your eyes peeled for a horned rider galloping through the trees on a fiery black steed! #HerneTheHunter
๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸฆŒ๐Ÿ‘ป
One version of his tale, taken from a @berkshirelifemagazine - "Back to the 14th century here where Herne was a favourite huntsman of Richard II. The story starts with a young Herne being apparently fatally injured after saving the king from an enraged stagโ€™s antlers. Herne himself was saved by a wizard from Bagshot Heath who suddenly appeared and declared the injured man should wear the dead stagโ€™s antlers.
A month later Herne was back at court as the golden boy, which made others jealous. There were whispers about โ€˜the black artsโ€™ and eventually twoย foresters convinced the king that Herne was guilty of treachery. Sacked, he rode off and was later found hanging from an oak tree.
After this hunts failed, no deer were seen and the devious foresters were put to death. But not before the king saw a lightning bolt strike a great oak underneath which stood a figure wearing antlers on his head. Herneโ€™s ghost stepped forward and demanded their punishment. All the deer returned and itโ€™s said that every winter since Herne has returned to ride in the forest, wearing his antlers and with a red-eyed owl on his shoulders."

ALL CHANGE! Video and post from the Band of the @coldstream_guards.
'Not only did the clocks change but so too did the unmistakable uniforms of the soldiers in London. The @britisharmy has decided that Winter is here, and as such, all troops will appear in Winter Guard Order. The iconic red tunics of the Foot Guards will be replaced by the Athol Grey Greatcoat.' ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ’‚โ€โ™‚๏ธ

Earlier this week @kipchogeeliud ran a marathon in under two hours. But did you know it was the 1908 Olympic marathon starting in Windsor that officially set the distance for all future marathons at 26mi 385yds? Before then a marathon was about 26 miles, but varied race to race. King Edward VII requested that the start line by moved to the private East Terrace at the Castle so @theroyalfamily could watch the athletes depart, adding on a few more yards. And in case you were wondering the winning time in the 1908 race? 2:55:18, a new Olympic Record!
