Security barriers are being placed around Windsor Castle ahead of the next Changing of the Guard.

Police said the decision was made following a review of security after the terror attack at Westminster last week.

The extra protection would be installed on Monday evening, a force spokesman said.

Excellent. We had a piece on one of the national news shows about the barriers in New York Times Square. Many are quite nice architecturally and then, there are some that are the same used as lane barriers when multi-lane highways are under construction which are ugly and utilitarian. Short term, keep Windsor safe; long-term make the barriers aesthetically pleasing.

It comes 25 years after a massive blaze inflicted £36million worth of damage to the largest inhabited castle in the world.

I just love Windsor and the Christmas decorations make that home even more better. A true Winter Wonderland!

How many years has it been, do you suppose, since Her Majesty has decorated a tree from start to finish? This occurred to me as I looked at all those trees; all those lights to put up, all those baubles. In some things, it is good to be the monarch!
