Queen Elizabeth II is scheduled to receive، Saudi Crown Pricne، Mohammed Bin Slaman، later today، Wednesday at Windsor castle، which regarded as the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world.
Windsor Castle is a royal residence at Windsor in the English county of Berkshire. It is notable for its long association with the English and later British royal family and for its architecture.
The original castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion of England by William the Conqueror. Since the time of Henry I، it has been used by the reigning monarch and is the longest-occupied palace in Europe.
The castle's lavish early 19th-century State Apartments were described by the art historian Hugh Roberts as "a superb and unrivalled sequence of rooms widely regarded as the finest and most complete expression of later Georgian taste".
Inside the castle walls is the 15th-century St George's Chapel، considered by the historian John Martin Robinson to be "one of the supreme achievements of English Perpendicular Gothic" design.
Noteworthy، Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman landed in the UK Tuesday on a landmark trip with a broad agenda spanning business، defense and political ties، Arab News reported.
During the three-day visit، Crown Prince Mohammed is expected to meet Prime Minister Theresa May، the Queen and other members of the British royal family.
His arrival in Britain has been highly anticipated، with extensive media coverage of relations between the two countries in the build-up.
Billboards highlighting the visit have been erected in parts of London and along major highways into the capital.
One shows the flags of the two countries with “United Kingdoms” written across the top. Another shows Crown Prince Mohammed with the slogan “He is bringing change to Saudi Arabia.”
