Royal consorts and heirs buried at Windsor
Monarchs Royal consorts and heirs

Windsor Castle has been the site of a Royal compound since William the Conqueror and has over the centuries been built into the largest inhabited castle in the world today.

Although occasional monarchs and their consorts were buried at the castle from the 15th century it wasn't until the 19th century that St George's Chapel and (in the case of Queen Victoria) the nearby Frogmore House superceded Westminster Abbey as the chosen burial place for the British monarchy.

The following is a list of the royal consorts and heirs to the throne who are buried at Windsor.
