Tiaras and Turrets

Welcome to all you ever wanted to know about Balmoral Castle.



This is Balmoral Castle in Scotland.

The Queen has holidays here with her family.

She likes to walk through the fields and woods with her corgie dogs.


Their names are Monty, Emma, Linnet, Willow, and Holly


Prince Albert bought the Castle for Queen Victoria.

They started having their holidays here in 1856.

This is the ballroom where huge banquets are held for special guests.


150 people work for the Queen including 6 chefs, 40 gardeners and 14 chamber maids.


Her chefs don't have to spend very long cook her meals.


The Queen likes cereal and fruit for breakfast.

She likes Kellogg's, Quaker Oats, and Weetabix.

Sometimes she has toast and marmalade.

Or, on some occasions, enjoys scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and truffle.

For lunch she likes something simple, like fish with vegetables.

She likes to eat grilled Dover sole with wilted spinach or courgettes, or maybe grilled chicken with salad.


For dinner she likes beef or venison, pheasant, or salmon that comes from her farms in Sandringham and Balmoral.

The meat is served with a sauce of mushroom, cream and whisky. She also loves a Sunday roast, when it's served well done.
