In the UK, Windsor Castle has reopened to visitors. Since the beginning of September, the entrance to it has been limited due to the death of Elizabeth II, who is buried in the memorial chapel located on the territory of this castle.

Entrance ticket costs 26.5 pounds sterling on all days of the week except Saturday; on Saturday, each visitor will have to pay 28.5 pounds (1770 and 1900 rubles, respectively).

The proceeds that go to the cash desk of the Royal Collection Fund formally become the property of the British royal family, for which she began to be severely criticized. People who want to pay tribute to the late Queen do not understand why and for what they have to pay such money.

People call the fee “exorbitant”. In social networks, they are outraged by the greed of the Windsors.

One user wrote that in other historical places, fees are also sometimes charged, but not as exorbitant. As an example, the French Versailles is given, where the entrance ticket is many times cheaper.

The British are also pointing out to the new king that it is at least tactless to charge such hefty sums for mourning the deceased monarch, especially at a time when the UK is struggling with an economic crisis.
