She announced her departure from Buckingham Palace earlier this year. Consider the Queen’s announcement in March that she would be leaving Buckingham Palace for good and relocating to Windsor Castle.
Her Majesty was claimed to be making the Berkshire estate her permanent home while the London residence is undergoing a re-service, which is expected to be completed by 2027.
The 96-year-old royal is thought to have not slept at Buckingham Palace since March 2020; he has been residing at Windsor Castle with her late spouse, Prince Philip, until his death in April 2021.
However, it has been suggested that Queen Elizabeth II came to Windsor for reasons other than being close to her grandson Prince William, his wife Kate Middleton, and their children Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, who are going to Adelaide Cottage.
Former royal chef Darren McGrady, who worked for the Queen for 11 years in Buckingham Palace, claims the Queen “never really liked” the palace.
“It’s no surprise the Queen has moved to Windsor; she’s never really liked the palace; it’s always been the Queen’s office,” Darren said of the latest relocation to Coffee Friend.
“The Queen is always rushing back to Windsor Castle; she can’t wait to get there.” She adores being there, so it’s no wonder she’s decided to stay.”
Windsor Castle has enough area for the Queen, her family, and servants, but it also gives the Queen the space and solitude she needs to freely care for her horses and other pets.
“There are two kitchens there, the central kitchen and the small kitchen, and the small kitchen is just small enough to care for the Queen and one of two guests,” he explained. There was always a senior chef, a junior chef, and roughly 30 employees that went to Windsor for the weekend. We worked in the small kitchen; it’s different and much more intimate.
“The Queen can walk the dogs while watching the horses in the back garden.” The Queen has always prioritized dogs and horses. That is her hobby and her passion. And, at the age of 96, why shouldn’t she? Allow Charles and William to take on some of the other commitments; she should now spend all her time with the horses and dogs. Her family is also close by in Windsor.”
