Queen Elizabeth, with her blessings, has sanctioned a Muslim prayer room at her residence, Windsor Castle. The prayer room will be available to Muslims during the Islamic month of fasting.
The room is being used by just one person who works in the gift shops at the castle.
Every workday at 1:30pm visitor services assistant Nagina Chaudhry locks herself in the room to roll out her prayer mat and point it towards Mecca.
She then dons her hijab – headscarf – and begins the half-hour lunchtime prayer required of all Muslims during Ramadan.
Miss Chaudhry said she was thrilled when castle bosses allowed her to use a specially-converted office in the historic Saxon Tower. (DailyMail.co.uk)
Miss Chaudhry works part-time in the gift shops, two days a week.
