You’ve got to feel sorry for the Royal Family! Despite having huge precedence, wealth and status, there’s little they can do about where they live. The Royal Family happen to live in some of the oldest buildings in the country, and as it is Halloween, I thought I’d share some of the most scary and fascinating stories of Royal hauntings in the Queen’s residences.
Also, follow @RoyalCentralUK on Twitter tonight for some tweets all about Royal hauntings.
Windsor Castle is the oldest of all the Queen’s residences, with almost 1000 years of history behind it, it is abundant with ghosts, spirits and all manner of the afterlife, here are a few examples.
Some people have suggested that Hern is one of the Windsor Castle ghosts that is just folklore, perhaps a distant memory of the Celtic god, Cernunnos. However, in 1962, a group of youths found a hunting horn in the forest and blew it. Immediately, the call was answered by another horn and the baying of many hounds. Then Hern himself appeared with the antlers on his head and riding a black horse. Not surprisingly, the youths ran for their lives.
Not all the Royal Ghosts haunt Windsor Castle, there are even a few in the more modern royal residences, here are some more!
I hope you are now suitably scared, if not then follow us on Twitter tonight for some more stories.
