King Charles Sparks Controversy with Decision to Alter Centuries Old Tradition

In a move that has stirred discontent among residents, King Charles has broken a longstanding tradition at Windsor Castle, dating back two centuries.

The decision, part of a series of modernizations within the royal realm, has left many locals feeling unsettled.

Previously, Windsor residents enjoyed free admission to historic sites, a practice upheld since 1825. However, starting June 1st, 2024, a fee will be imposed for visits, marking a significant departure from tradition.

According to BBC reports, the Royal Collection Trust will now offer discounted admission to residents holding a Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Advantage Card.

This card, offering deals at over 200 attractions, will grant locals access to Windsor Castle at a reduced rate.

While Windsor Castle remains a private residence of the royal family, it has historically welcomed visitors throughout the year. Residents interested in obtaining the Advantage Card can apply online, free of charge.

The decision has sparked criticism, notably from parliamentary candidate Julian Tisi, who expressed disappointment that locals, who warmly embrace tourists, are now facing additional charges for visits to their own heritage sites.

Tisi lamented that this change fails to reciprocate the goodwill extended by Windsor residents to visitors.

In response, a spokesperson for the Royal Collection Trust defended the decision, citing a review of pricing and alignment with the policies of other businesses in the borough.

As debate ensues over the implications of this decision, it underscores the delicate balance between preserving tradition and adapting to modern realities in the royal domain.
