The spectacular Semi-State Rooms at #WindsorCastle
will open to visitors from 26 October for the winter.
The Semi-State Rooms are the private apartments created for George IV. They feature interiors decorated by Morel & Seddon, with a selection of furnishings and fittings taken from Carlton House, George IV's former London residence. The rooms are among the most richly decorated interiors in the Castle and are used by The Queen for official entertaining. Learn more about George IV's ideas for furnishing the Green Drawing Room in our online trail.
George IV had a love of fine objects and a taste for the theatrical. With his architect, Sir Jeffry Wyatville, he completely remodelled the Castle’s exterior during the 1820s, giving it the romantic and picturesque appearance seen today. He also decided to create the Semi-State Rooms, a new suite of private rooms on the sunnier east and south sides of the Castle, including the magnificent Crimson Drawing Room. This was George IV’s last and greatest commission, and one of the most elaborate and expensive interior decoration schemes ever carried out in England.
The Semi-State Rooms were severely damaged by the fire of 1992, although, by chance, their contents had been moved elsewhere at the time. They were completely restored to their 19th-century appearance using the original designs supplied to George IV.

In 1905, in a South African mine, the 3,106 carat Cullinan Diamond was discovered by mistake during a routine mine inspection. It was named the Cullinan Diamond after the owner of the mine, Thomas Cullinan. The diamond was sent to Europe and in 1908 Asscher and Co. of Amsterdam successfully cut the diamond into 9 major stones (each given a number) and many smaller brilliants. Although part of the diamond was presented to King Edward VII, the other stones were kept by Asscher. In 1910 the remaining stones were purchased by the Government of South Africa and given to Queen Mary as a coronation gift. The Cullinan V Diamond is heart shaped and weighs 18.8 carats. It was made into a brooch and used by Queen Mary in an emerald stomacher, as a brooch, and as a center piece in various tiaras and crowns. After her death in 1953, the brooch was inherited by The Queen who wears the brooch frequently, including to the wedding of Princess Eugenie.
