A royal visitor – Windsor care home enjoys special visit from The Duke of Gloucester ahead of the Jubilee

Highlighted home news

A care home in Windsor has celebrated The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with a visit from His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester. 

Mountbatten Grange, on Helston Lane, welcomed The Duke, Vice Lord-Lieutenant, Mr Graham Barker, and Mayor of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Councillor, John Story, to the care home to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and hear from the care home’s residents.

The team took the three very special guests on a tour of the home, where they were introduced to residents, family members and team members. 

Residents from a nearby Care UK home, Bickerton House, were also invited to attend the special event. 

Mountbatten Grange’s Head Chef prepared a jubilee-themed afternoon tea for everyone, which included homemade scones, lemon and lavender drizzle cake, inspired by The Queen’s estate at Sandringham, and Gloucestershire lardy cakes. 

Regional Director at Care UK Eileen Coyle-Jones said a few words, which included thanking the team for their hard work, and the visit finished with The Duke of Gloucester being invited to sign the visitors’ book. 

Resident at Mountbatten Grange, who was sat on The Duke’s table at lunch, Jim Mundy said: “Today was 10/10 – splendid. The Duke was talkative and very friendly.” 

Another resident Pauline Robinson said: “This is first time I’ve met a member of the royal family – it was great. The Duke was a gentleman.”

Vice Lord-Lieutenant, Graham Baker said: “It was wonderful to visit Mountbatten Grange for the Platinum Jubilee celebration.

“I helped to open the home at the grand launch in February 2019. It was a pleasure to visit once again and speak to residents and team members whom I first met three years ago. It was good to see how the home has grown and how it has developed since that time.

“A heartfelt thank you to everyone on the staff team and to the residents for a very memorable and special day.”

Debbie Winwood, Home Manager at Mountbatten Grange, said: “It was a pleasure to welcome The Duke of Gloucester, the Vice Lord-Lieutenant, and the Mayor of Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to Mountbatten Grange – it was certainly a day we’ll all remember. 

“We enjoyed talking to them all about the different aspects of care we offer to the residents of Windsor and taking them on a tour of our wonderful home.

“Many of the residents remember past jubilee celebrations with fondness and we hope this year will be no different - especially with our extra special visitors. 

“I’d like to thank the team for organising this wonderful event and everyone who attended – it was a day enjoyed by all.”  

Mountbatten Grange has been designed to deliver the very best standards of care and to enable residents to live active and fulfilled lives. The home provides full-time residential, nursing and dementia care, as well as short-term respite and palliative care.
