It would appear as if "South York" is to be demolished, which is of course no loss.

Love to see pictures of the Russian Chapel that Grand Duchess Marie built in Clarence House. She and her husband Duke Alfred of Edinburgh used Clarence House as their London base.

Does anyone have any pics of the interior of Princess Anne's Gatcombe Park?

Does anyone know which room the Queen used to record her Diamond Jubilee Message?  The British Monarchy website indicated it was recorded in the Presence Room but I've never heard of this space before.

I've also never seen or heard about a room by that name.  Having just gone back over my floor plans again, I came up with one possibility:  the large room located between the Queen's Audience Chamber and the Royal Closet just off the Minister's Staircase.  In old floor plans from prior reigns this room was labeled a sitting room for a senior lady of the court (Miss somebody or another - I can't recall).

The traditional sequence of rooms in a royal palace's state apartments was:  Guard Room, Presence Chamber, Audience Chamber, and finally one or more withdrawing rooms or cabinets.  So it would make sense to me that the room preceding the Queen's Audience Room would be the Presence Room.

Thoughts?

That could very well be the space as the photo shows a reflection of a window directly opposite the fireplace, which is the case when looking at the plans of the room between the Queen's current Audience Room and Royal Closet.  I went back to those old plans, the Queen's current Audience Room is actually labeled Tapestry Room with the room between that and the Royal Closet labeled Miss Knolly's Sitting Room.  The Audience Room in those earlier plans was actually located next to the Queen's Sitting Room.

Where in Windsor Castle is the Casson Suite?  Is that one of the principal guest apartments in the south wing overlooking the Long Walk?

exactly. It's better known as rooms 240-244. By the way: do you have Buckingham Palace floor plan?

I do, but unfortunately have been informed (by more than one other forum member) that those plans are copyrighted and sharing them is technically illegal.  So while I'm happy to use them to answer any questions if I can, I cannot send them out.

I don't think it is right those floor plans should be copyrighted. It's simply unfair, and I say so even if I own a copy of them, which I paid, but I would be glad to share them for free if this wasn't against any law.
