Green-fingered teenager to work as gardener at Windsor Castle
Published: Saturday 6th of September 2008
A teenager from Crosby on Merseyside is to start work as a landscape gardener at Windsor Castle.
Gardening student Carl Donnelly, 18, beat hundred of applicants to secure a year-long placement at the 5,000-acre Windsor Great Park.
Mr Donnelly will live next door to the royal lodge of Prince Andrew while he works on the crown estate's private Saville garden. His flat will also be next to Guards Polo Club, occasioned by Princes William and Harry, reports the Crosby Herald.
He commented: "This is the job I have always wanted to do. As a kid I used to walk around castles looking at the gardens, and I hope that after this, I will go back to college, finish my course, then get a job at Buckingham Palace."
