The Queen spying on Snow White and the Prince from her balcony window. Disaster struck 20th November when a curtain, in the Queen's private chapel, was ignited by a spotlight which had been accidentally pressed up against it. The fire raged for over nine hours, and despite the efforts of firefighters battling against the flames was not finally extinguished until the early hours of the following morning, some fifteen hours later.
Despite soaking the crumbling structure in 4, tons of water, nine rooms were completely gutted and nearly suffered significant damage, by what remains the worst blaze in the castle s year history.
Members of the Royal Family, including the Queen and Prince Andrew, were reported to have joined a human chain tasked with saving great works of art from the wreckage. A Restoration Committee, headed by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales, was set up to oversee the repair work. The committee decided that certain principle rooms destroyed by the fire - the Grand Reception Room, the State Dining Room, and two Drawing Rooms - should be restored to their former state. The restoration of the State Apartments brings alive how the original rooms would have looked and have arguably improved the visitor experience.
