We wanted to share this lovely photo of Queen Elizabeth, age 94, horse-riding on the grounds of Windsor.
The Queen stunned royal fans yesterday evening by sharing this photo of her horse-riding.
The Queen is pictured riding Fern – a 14 year-old Fell Pony – in Windsor Home Park. The monarch wore a tweed jacket, gloves and a colourful headscarf and looked in great spirits!
Her Majesty has enjoyed riding since childhood and is closely involved with the welfare of the horses she owns for breeding, riding and racing. The Queen loves her horses so much that it is often heard that she gives them a longer holiday each year than she does to her foot guards.
We would like to share a few of our favourite photos of Her Majesty with her horses through the years:
Did you know you can also visit some of the Queen’s personal favourite horses at the Queen’s Royal Stables, the Royal Mews in Buckingham Palace?
It’s not every year that the there is one big Royal event, let alone two. That makes 2018 a very special time to be visiting London and the UK:
Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (William and Kate) are due their third child any day and HRH Prince Henry of Wales (Harry) and Ms. Megan Markle are getting married!
There is always a sense of new beginnings in the air during Spring time. How wonderful then to know that a new generation is joining the Royal family this month. There is much excitement to see who will be joining HRH Prince George and his sister HRH Princess Charlotte:

In an ever changing world it is nice to think of the Royal Family as an example of what it means to be a traditional united family in the 21st century. HRH Prince William is a member of the House of Windsor, and he along with his family will be attending the wedding of his brother HRH Prince Harry and Ms. Megan Markle on the 19th of May 2018.
St. George’s Chapel, Windsor: the location of the Royal Wedding in May 2018
In anticipation of the event, London Magical Tours are seeing a great increase in interest in our Windsor Castle Tours. Windsor is a beautiful traditional English town on the banks of the River Thames, home to Her Majesty The Queen’s favourite countryside residence, the spectacular 1,000 year old Windsor Castle. It is in the grounds of the Castle that the Royal Wedding will take place, in the historic St. George’s Chapel.
HRH Prince Harry and Ms. Megan Markle are due to marry in May of 2018
From everyone at London Magical Tours and the Cartland’s Group, we send our best wishes to the Royal family during this special time!
