After an early start we took the 9.00am train from Richmond bound for Windsor and Eton Riverside. The programme was coffee on arrival, watch the changing of the guard at 11.00am followed by a tour of the state apartments to include seeing the collection of the Queens dresses. Lunch followed at Gilbeys on Eton High street.
