Windsor Castle, UK. Can I just become part of the royal family so I can live here?

Windsor Castle is a royal residence at Windsor in the English county of Berkshire. The original castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion by William the Conqueror.

The eight Royal Beasts in the Tudor Garden have been painted (and gilded) with the correct heraldic colours of the period. The White Hart may have been derived from Richard II’s mother, Joan Holland’s badge of a hind. It was adopted as a Yorkist badge and is shown as a supporter of the arms of Edward V in the south aisle of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

Windsor Castle is a medieval castle and royal residence in Windsor in the English county of Berkshire, notable for its long association with the British royal family and for its architecture.
