The Waterloo Chamber is one of the largest rooms in the Castle and has traditionally been used for Investitures.
The chandeliers in the Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle are given a final check and polish in preparation for the room’s reopening to visitors on Saturday, April 9, following renovation works.
The Waterloo Chamber’s ceiling has been obscured by scaffolding for 20 months while work was undertaken to replace the roof above and to clean and conserve the room’s lantern windows, ceiling and chandeliers. The room has been closed to visitors for the past two months while the scaffolding was removed, the chandeliers reinstated and the room restored to its former glory.
The five cut-glass chandeliers that hang in the Waterloo Chamber were installed in 1862 and their design was approved by Prince Albert shortly before his death. The Waterloo Chamber is one of the largest rooms in the Castle and has traditionally been used for Investitures.
