Overview. The burial ground was established because the Royal Vault under St George’s Chapel was becoming full; by 1928, there had been 23 interments since 1810. King George V allowed the burial ground to be made with the intention that in the future, only British sovereigns and those in the direct line of succession would be buried in the Royal Vault.

The Royal Mausoleum is a mausoleum for Queen Victoria and her husband Albert, Prince Consort. It is located on the Frogmore estate within the Home Park at Windsor in Berkshire, England. It was listed Grade I on the National Heritage List for England in October 1975. It was built between 1862 and 1871. Albert, who died in 1861, was interred in the mausoleum in 1871 following its completion. Victoria was interred on 5 February 1901 following her death in late January. Work commenced in March 1862.
Queen Victoria and her husband had long intended to construct a special resting place for them both, instead of the two of them being buried in one of the traditional resting places of British royalty, such as Westminster Abbey or St George's Chapel, Windsor. The mausoleum for the queen's mother was being constructed at Frogmore in 1861 when Albert died in December of the same year. Victoria chose the site of Albert's mausoleum on 18 December 1861, four days after her husband's death, and plans
It was built by the architect A. J. Humbert, based on designs by Professor Ludwig Gruner. The mausoleum is in the form of a Greek cross, to a 70 ft diameter, with a central octagon of 70 ft height. It was designed in the Romanesque style. The mausoleum is built from Portland stone and granite; Australian copper covers the roof. An inscription in bronze above the door reads: Alberti Principis quod mortale erat Hoc in Sepulchro deponi voluit Vidua moerens Victoria Regina A.D. MDCCCLXII. Vale Desid

(Porting this hence from UpDown's talkpage -- G2) I'm intrigued as to how you find "Royal Family of the Commonwealth Realms" a POV creation. Perhaps you could explain? --G2bambino15:40, 21 October 2007 (UTC) (Porting this hence from G2bambino's talkpage -- LW) It's POV pushing by you as normal you insist on being legal instead of logical. The Royal Family is always referred to as "the British Royal Family", not the "Royal Family of the Commonwealth Realms", an invented title. The Royal Family is first and foremost British; they live there, hold that nationality, work mostly there, are referred to as British by other nations and so so. It is not "POV focus on one country", it is logcial and correct as the UK is "first among equals". Sentences like "Royal Family shared by the Commonwealth Realms" will only confuse people completly unecessarily. The Royal Family are primarily the British Royal Family and to try and say otherwise is POV pushing and incorrect. --UpDown18:23, 21 October 2...
There is currently disagreement over how to describe the Royal Family that uses the Royal Burial Groundthat is the subject of this article. Essentially there are two variants: 1. The Royal Family of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth Realms; supported by the following: 1.1. The Royal Family is not uniquely British; as each Commonwealth Realm is a separate monarchy in personal union, the Royal Family officially functions separately within each jurisdiction, under the guidance of, and funded by, each local government. Cited material affirms the existence of, at least, a semi-separate Canadian Royal Family. 1.2. This pan-national aspect of the Royal Family should be briefly covered to avoid misrepresentation to the uninitiated reader; this can be done with the simple addition of the words: "and the other Commonwealth Realms." 1.3. The proposed text addresses the concerns of the opposing editors; namely: 1) the Royal Family's relation to the United Kingdom should be made prom...
The people who are buried on the Frogmore estate are the British Royal Family. This needs to be stated up front. That the British Royal Family reign over 15 other countries in certainly true, but is it really necessary to mention it in this particular article? It is fully pointed out in their own article, which is linked to. TharkunColl (talk) 00:33, 17 November 2007 (UTC) 1. We've got Commonwealth realms off the article's main context and reduced to a footnote. Oh, and yes - we have to mention Commonwealth realms in the footnote. GoodDay (talk) 00:56, 17 November 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Okay, that's fine. What's wrong with a really simple footnote along the lines of "The British Royal Family also reign over 15 other Commonwealth realms". TharkunColl (talk) 09:29, 17 November 2007 (UTC) 1.1.1. Because that's incorrect. The royal family doesn't "reign." The British Royal Family need not be singled out in this context, except to explain that common usage labels them as the "British Royal F...
But such a person will be so influenced, because G2 will bombard him with "facts".TharkunColl (talk) 00:36, 18 November 2007 (UTC) I wanted to highlight this little titbit from Thark; I think it reveals much about what makes these discussions start, and stops them from ending. This admission, taken in conjunction with the systematic deletion of text and its supporting cites from a number of articles, shows that this one editor refuses to accept established facts, something that clearly violates Wikipedia's verifiability and no point of view policies. I'm not going to say that my compositions or ways of communicating certain information is ideal, but the facts always remain of central importance to what ends up becoming an exercise in syntax. For Thark, however, this is actually a battle to suppress information, which is clearly censorious and disruptive. How do we proceed (not just here, but also at places such as Commonwealth realm, where Thark has again been reverting and removing...
I didn't want this to get lost in the effuse discussionabove, and as I feel it may be an important point to consider in this matter, I want to draw it out here. I'm starting to see that the crux of the problem may come down to the fact that two things are known by the same name, which is further complicated by the fact that those two things are physically one thing: One family is the royal family of the UK, and thus is the British Royal Family. That same family simultaneously is the royal family of 15 other sovereign states and thus is not purely British, but is still commonly referred to in this pan-national scope as the British Royal Family. Hence, contextbecomes very important; if this isn't expressed clearly, the result is the misleading impression that countries are represented by foreigners in a foreign royal family. That is not to say that this complexity need be expressed in an article like this, beyond, perhaps, either a brief footnote or a consise composition in the text a...
Congratulations guys; you've made it onto this page. :) No offence is intended. See Wikipedia:Lamest edit wars#Royal Burial Ground. (And well done for finally coming to a consensus, by the way!) Terraxos (talk) 20:23, 27 November 2007 (UTC) 1. Ashamedly and embarrasingly, it is well deserved. LOL, about the 'dead people' line. GoodDay (talk) 20:31, 27 November 2007 (UTC) 1.1. Yay! At least I'm famous for something. --G2bambino (talk) 20:51, 27 November 2007 (UTC) 1.1.1. Not complaining, but why did I suddenly get a guizzy feeling in my gizzard? GoodDay 19:17, 30 November 2007 (UTC) 18.104.22.168. Is this page gonna have to be locked again? GoodDay 20:10, 30 November 2007 (UTC) 22.214.171.124.1. If Thark II, the revenge, keeps up his usual editing habits, it may well be. --G2bambino 20:13, 30 November 2007 (UTC) 126.96.36.199.1.1. That said, nobody, save for myself, has really moved on to Commonwealth realm as we decided to do. I tried to start a section there, but, so far, no discussion or other contr...
I'm going to pipe the link for the royal family to Commonwealth realm#Royal family, with further work to be done to that article. Okay? --G2bambino20:24, 30 November 2007 (UTC) 1. Fine by me, I've also opened up a discussion at 'Commonwealth realm', seeing if others accept such links. GoodDay20:27, 30 November 2007 (UTC) 2. No, that's a bad idea. A link saying "British Royal Family" should lead to that article, not somewhere else. It is a disservice to readers to have things otherwise. The agreement, here, was to take the issue to Commonwealth realm and to British Royal Family and solve the supposed problem by ensuring that those articles covered the shared-monarchy thing adequately. Of those two articles, British Royal Family is the one that is actually germane to the editing of this article, because that is the one to which this article links. The evident aim of that agreement was to solve the "problem" elsewhere, and not have it trouble this article further. -- Lonewolf BC 21:01,...
Naivety was my downfall, I honestly thought by correctly showing Wallis was Duchess of Windsor, there'd be no protestations. However, I was reverted faster then Wallis was rejected by Stanley Baldwin. GoodDay16:37, 2 December 2007 (UTC) 1. Lol. Look who you're dealing with: Loner, fastest revert in the west. --G2bambino (talk) 17:54, 5 December 2007 (UTC) Decided to restore Duchess of Windsor and Duchess of Gloucester. GoodDay (talk) 19:48, 6 December 2007 (UTC)
Had to break away from the Commonwealth discussion - Does anybody know if all the royals buried here, are British? Is there any members of the English, Scottish, Irish Royal Families. GoodDay22:56, 3 December 2007 (UTC) 1. Only in as much as there was an Irish Royal Family between 1931 and 1949. Beyond that, Wallis Simpson was certainly American. --G2bambino (talk) 17:58, 5 December 2007 (UTC) So, there's nobody buried there, who died before 1707? GoodDay (talk) 18:03, 5 December 2007 (UTC) 1. I don't really know, but the article says no. --G2bambino (talk) 18:08, 5 December 2007 (UTC) OK, I just had to be sure. Had there been any royals buried there before the Act of Union. They wouldn't have been members of the British Royal Family. GoodDay (talk) 18:12, 5 December 2007 (UTC) The Burial Ground was established during the reign of King George V. It is for members of the British Royal Family who are not sovereigns (Edward VIII is thus the most senior royal buried there). Some members...
Duchess of Kent redirects to Duke of Kent, which is probably inaccurate. Could someone know which Duchess it was please put her name in? Ta. PrinceOfCanada (talk) 23:42, 3 May 2008 (UTC) 1.

Prince William was born at Hadley Common, Hertfordshire. His father was Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, the third son of George V and Queen Mary. His mother was Alice, Duchess of Gloucester, the third daughter of the 7th Duke of Buccleuchand Lady Margaret Bridgeman. He was baptised in the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle on 22 February 1942 by Cosmo Gordon Lang, Archbishop of Canterbury. His godparents were George VI (his paternal uncle), Queen Mary (his paternal grandmother), Princess Helena Victoria (his cousin), Lady Margaret Hawkins (his maternal aunt), Major Lord William Montagu Douglas Scott (his maternal uncle) and Lord Gort, who was unable to attend. Because of the war, newspapers did not identify the actual location of the christening, and said instead that it took place at "a private chapel in the country". At the time of his birth, and for months afterwards, Prince Henry was away on military duties, some of which meant considerable risk. This prompted George VIto write...
After returning to Britain, he took a position with Lazards, a merchant bank. Prince William was the second member of the British royal family to work in the civil service or the diplomatic service (the first was his uncle, Prince George, Duke of Kent, in the 1920s). He joined the Commonwealth Office in 1965 and was posted to Lagos as the third secretary at the British High Commission. In 1968, he transferred to Tokyo as second secretary (commercial) in the British Embassy. By 1970, the health of his father, the Duke of Gloucester, had become critical after further strokes. William had no choice but to resign from the diplomatic service and return to Britain in order to take care of his father's estate and, as he put it, take on the full-time job of a royal prince. On his way back, he represented the Queen at the celebrations to mark the termination of Tonga's status as a protected state. For the next two years, he managed Barnwell Manorand began to carry out public duties as a memb...
The prince was consistently described by friends as adventurous (almost to the point of recklessness), warm, tender and extremely generous. But of all his qualities, the one most often mentioned is that of loyalty to his friends. One account describes how William was particularly kind to friends who were either "ill, unpopular with others, or even downright embarrassing".His status and circumstances had also influenced his personality and he could, at times, be "tiresomely selfish". Regarding his family, Prince William considered himself extremely lucky compared to other members of the royal family. He had a very close relationship with both his parents, especially with his mother of whom he said, "She is a human being and she must possess some faults. But so far as I am concerned she has no faults at all". He was also very fond of his father, one friend describing William's love and tenderness for him as "infectious".William acknowledged his father couldn't have been very happy as...
A licensed pilot and President of the British Light Aviation Centre, Prince William owned several aircraft and competed in amateur air show races. On 28 August 1972, he was competing in the Goodyear International Air Trophy at Halfpenny Green, near Wolverhampton, with Vyrell Mitchell—a pilot with whom the prince had often raced—listed as a passenger. Shortly after their takeoff and at a very low altitude, the Piper Cherokee banked abruptly to port, with an extreme increase in the rate of turn and corresponding loss of altitude; the wing hit a tree and sheared off, and the out-of-control plane flipped over and crashed into an earthen bank, bursting into flames. Prince William and Mitchell were killed.The crash happened before 30,000 spectators, the fire took two hours to control, and the bodies were identified at inquest the next day from dental records. His father, Prince Henry, was in such poor health at the time of his death that his mother hesitated whether to tell him. She later...
