A chance to see the Queen in public and private, this short series chronicles a year in the life of Windsor, the world's largest inhabited castle.
President Chirac of France is coming to stay. The castle must look spectacular, the kitchens must create a meal to impress, and there's the small matter of the after-dinner show.
Among the activities and events is is Easter Court, a period when all royal business is conducted from Windsor rather than Buckingham Palace. Plus the grandeur of Garter Day and the racing extravaganza of Royal Ascot.
