Car lovers are in for a treat as Windsor Castle prepares to host a Concours of Elegance in honour of the Queen's 90th birthday.
The first Concours was held there in 2012 as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Its return to the castle next September will be even more spectacular, as hundreds of cars gather to celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday. From Friday, September 2 until Sunday, September 4, the most exceptional cars from all over the world will provide a spectacular display in the Quadrangle.
The Concours of Elegance remains unique in the UK as the only automotive event to be held at a royal venue each year - 2016 marking the show’s fifth year.  Previous locations have included  St James’s Palace, Hampton Court Palace and the Palace of Holyroodhouse - but now the event is coming back to Windsor for the Queen's big birthday. 
Prince Michael of Kent is the Concours of Elegance’s patron.
The event is unique in that all  the judging is done by the owners of the vehicles entered.  Each vehicle owner is given one vote for another car in the Concours that they consider the most elegant.  The car with the most votes receives the stunning Concours of Elegance Pullman Trophy and is named ‘best in show’.
The Concours of Elegance at Windsor Castle will be open to the public on Saturday and Sunday, September 3 and 4, 2016.  Entry tickets and hospitality will need to be booked in advance.
The event aims to raise significant sums for charity with more than £600,000 raised to date.
