It is a fact that installing double glazing cuts both energy bills & carbon emissions, helping the environment

I am delighted to hear that our beloved Queen Elizabeth II seems to be well aware of this, as I have read reports on the Energy Saving Trust website suggesting Her Majesty is planning install double-glazed windows in Buckingham Palace.

As the Energy Saving Trust website states “Not only will this bring down the British Royal Family’s energy costs by keeping heat inside the building, but it will also allow them to improve their green credentials.”

According to the Energy Saving Trust’s calculations, the average household can save around £135 a year on their heating costs by fitting double glazing.

But the typical family home is miniscule in comparison to Her Majesty the Queen’s central London residence, Buckingham Palace, which has served as the official London home of all Britain’s monarchs since 1837.

Buckingham Palace comprises of no less than 775 rooms, including 19 state rooms, 52 royal and guest bedrooms, 188 staff bedrooms, 92 offices and an incredible 78 bathrooms. Given the massive costs of maintaining and heating all these rooms, if the Queen does fit double glazing, she will certainly see some massive savings on her energy costs, thereby reducing her Royal carbon footprint.
