Windsor Castle

The U.K. Government — not the royal family — owns both Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace, which make up a large portion of the $12 billion Crown Estate.

The Government gained official ownership of the castle after the Queen’s 3rd great-grandfather, George III, transferred virtually all Royal properties to the government.
