The Royals have captivated the world's attention with admiration and great interest with the mere facts of the way they act and glamor of their dress. Grasping attention is the historic castles. The quality of power that oversees the Royal Empire with intense appeal, holds the strength to keep things together, the Royal Way.

Whether seeing the Changing of the Guards, that is viewed by thousands, on a daily basis, either in person or seen by watching a video televised, reading a story about a royal figure from a century ago; or a modern day royal, their lifestyle is an establishment, that dazzles with a statement, whatever and wherever the Royal People are or travel.

There are do's and don'ts with manners -- The Royal Manners -- or -- Royal Etiquette. The stronghold of Royal Etiquette is upheld with pride and holds the principle of all Royal Manners. The last institution that is highly regarded and holds such support to stand up to the belief of the Royal People is the Royal Household. The traditional lifestyle, for the Royals, modern day, in the British Court, is at all times practiced. The dashing leadership to share, willingness to pass on, without a doubt in the mind, and ensure the Royal People are addressed correctly and efficiently.

To dream on a minute or two, to have an unusual, but exceptional, chance to receive a Royal Invite, to a memorable event at St. George Chapel. Something like this would leave a common person, to think, how would such a Royal Invite be answered correctly. There is a right way and then there is the wrong way and stretching things a bit, the very worst way.

St. George's Chapel, is the most Beautiful Ecclesiastical Building in England, a place of worship at Windsor Castle, England, United Kingdom.

The Royal Occasion, would bring one to be face to face to the Royals. Approaching a Royal, the perfect bow, or curtsey, has to be followed by the Royal Manner to a person would react. A book on Royal Etiquette would have to be purchased, to read and follow precise instructions, not to fall short in any way and to enjoy the most memorable experience of a lifetime, to say the least.

To continue on with a deep thought of actually attending a Royal Event, would bring to mind the way of travel and destination.

Once in London, hop a train heading to Windsor, since St. George Chapel is located there. Windsor is a town in the Royal Borough of Windsor in Berkshire, England. This is the site of Windsor Castle, the official residences of the British Royal Family.

Now, the trip of getting to St. George Chapel has finally come true. Leaving one in complete awe! The architecture is absolutely, outstandingly gorgeous and gothic!

Upon entering the richly decorated chapel, one can not miss seeing it all, which leaves a person spinning and looking in every direction, heads up to see an astonishing and striking ceiling, to the stained glass windows; the carved wooden windows and the 13th century ironworks that frames the doors which dates back to 1240. As well, this Chapel being a burial spot for many Kings and Queens since George III, the sacred tombs lay to rest, and holding sentiments and special objects from a time period of the longest ruling monarch before Queen Victoria. { 1738 - 1820 }

Attending the Royal Event, a person would be in the company of the most distinguished, illustrated and well known people of the world, seeing as they entered, The Heralds, Clergy, Choir, followed by The Knights of the Garter. The Royal Knights, Princess Alexandria, Lady Ogilvy, The Duke of Kent, The Duke of York, The Princess Royal, The Prince of Wales, and Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburg, just to name a few, as they all proceeded to their seats. As one being a spectator, your eyes could not stop watching and looking, so not to miss one royal person, coming down the isle, walking on the floor that came from the Windsor Estate.

"God Save our Gracious Queen" would be heard singing by the choir. The procession concluded this fine ceremony, and everlasting memory. Of course, this would not end inside the chapel, leaving the chapel, one would see the procession outside the Chapel, with the Royal Family, as they led their way up the hill to the castle. This would be a privilege and honor to attend a Royal Presentation, the scene of the bygone days that history played a role and the men dressed in the morning suits and top hats, as the royal ladies held their heads high wearing a wide variety of hats and white gloves.

Now that the moment or two was only a very deep, deep thought, that wandered on into a dream, and awaken by reality.

Just to realize that a Royal Invite may never come a commoners way, but the commoner, without a Royal Invite, can actually visit St. George's Chapel and see all the wonderful relics and gothic ceilings, but keep in mind all the Royals may not be there in any grand attire. There are tours available to see Buckingham Palace with all the glitter and gold. Windsor Castle is a place that a person would never want to miss seeing, if available, tours should be checked for information, about this exceptionally beautiful place.

Reality is only a flight and train ride away, plus some money for travel expense, to personally visit Windsor Castle , the oldest and largest , inhibited Castle. The history of Windsor Castle is so rich, it spans back just about 1000 years. It holds treasures from the Royal Collection, that would be sensational to see.

Royal Borough of Windsor, actually offers space, for a price, to hold personal and family celebrations, that includes wedding planning. Can anyone ever imagine having your own or children's wedding at the Royal Borough of Windsor. In all reality, set aside the dreams, and deep thoughts, reading books and viewing videos, one can actually make it all true, with a few limitations, of course. Plan the trip wisely, check out the cost, make a route. Visit the most exciting place first.

      Well, I know how that goes. I'm a bit of a chronic mistaker myself, but your hub still looked fine, and even better now.

      A very interesting hub Bidd Wax. The architecture is truly amazing. It doesn't matter what time period we live, we humans have this mindset that we're so much smarter than those old fogies before us. Then we see something so ancient, yet so intricate and beautiful, that it sets us in our place, and reminds us of where we came from, and how we got here.
