Investiture ceremonies moved to Windsor Castle

Published: Friday 3rd of October 2008

Honour-giving ceremonies will be held at Windsor Castle for the first time in November, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

The move will free up Buckingham Palace resources for Prince Charles' 60th birthday celebrations.

A second investiture ceremony, where honours such as knighthoods and OBEs are given out, will also take place at the Queen's Berkshire residency in December.

Around 2,600 people are honoured annually by the Queen and other Royal Family members.

The Queen has already delegated a number of the 22 investitures held each year in London to family members, including the Prince of Wales and Princess Anne.

Edinburgh and Cardiff also hold annual honour-giving ceremonies.

The first investiture of the autumn season will be held at Buckingham Palace on October 10th.

Windsor Castle is the world's largest occupied castle and has been a Royal residence for over 900 years.
