A ROYAL retreat in Windsor is opening its doors to the public for the first time since 2019 this summer.

Frogmore House and Garden, in Windsor Great Park, will welcome visitors to take a look around its premises from August 30 to September 1 as part of the annual charity garden open days.

And this year it opens as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The three charities benefitting from the proceeds of the open days are the National Garden Scheme, Mothers’ Union and Guide Dogs.

Built in the 17th century, Frogmore House became a royal residence in 1792 when it was purchased by Queen Charlotte, the wife of George III.

Even though it is no longer an occupied royal residence, it is frequently used by the Royal Family for private events.

“The funds raised from the open gardens at Frogmore House will help continue our vital work around the world – with every project we are part of helping to end poverty and injustice, giving communities the skills they need to thrive.”

And Denise Clark, community fundraising relationship manager at Guide Dogs, said: ‘We’re so pleased to be involved with the Frogmore House charity days this year and we look forward to seeing everyone there.”
