Gorgeous! I wonder how often the fresh arrangements get redone? That garland underneath the fanned ceiling is wonderful.

I don't know if this is the first year that they have done this, but considering they have most of what is needed in house, it will draw a large amount of people that may have visited the castle previously. The family does this every year at the Biltmore house in North Carolina, and it is a huge draw every year.

Queen approves £27m Windsor Castle revamp as 90th birthday approaches
Quote:
he Queen has approved a £27 million revamp of Windsor Castle, including its first public café, in an early 90th birthday gift to the nation.

Until now, the 1.3 million visitors who pay to look round Windsor each year have had to manage without so much as a fortifying cup of tea, but a 14th century undercroft will be transformed into a restaurant as part of the biggest renovations since the fire of 1992.

The castle’s State Entrance will also be opened up to the public for the first time, and an education centre will be added as part of the project.

A spokesman for the Royal Collection said the Queen, who will be 90 on April 21, was “fully aware of the plans” and had given them her approval.

At Windsor, the Castle’s Georgian entrance hall will be reinstated, creating a “proper sense of arrival”, according to the planners. The visitor route will also take in the State Entrance for the first time, and the new café will be housed in the vaulted ground floor undercroft, built by Edward III in the 1350s as the Castle’s main cellar and larder.

It will be a godsend for visitors who currently have the choice of bottled water or ice cream from a kiosk if they feel in need of refreshment.

An existing building in the grounds of the Castle will also be turned into an education centre.
There is also information about the Palace of Holyroodhouse in this article.

This is a weird Question but here goes: Edward III was born in Windsor in 1312 sure but where exactly was he born in the Building, where was the family Quarters?

Very likely where the queen sleeps now or in close proximity. The 'queen's chambers' were housed in the upper ward of Windsor castle in the 14th century, as they are now. The rooms were redone during the life of Edward III's great-grandmother Eleanor of Provence in the 1250's. Bathing facilities added and upgraded during his mother's and later his reign.
