The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be present when the Olympic Torch enters the Quadrangle of Windsor Castle on 10 July

The torch will be borne through the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead before entering through Henry VIII Gate, where a change of Torch bearer will take place.

The runner will then pass through the grounds of the Castle, before entering the Quadrangle, where The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh will be joined by Lord Coe (Chairman, London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games).

The Royal Party will see a handball display by schoolchildren before meeting a number of Olympic Torch Bearers from the 1948 London Games and meet the designers of the current Olympic Torch.

There will be a final Torch Bearer Exchange in the Quadrangle, before this runner travels down the Long Walk to continue the Torch Relay.
