“Do not forget to set your clocks forward this weekend if you live in the UK,” said the Royal Family.
This weekend, Royal Collection Trust staff will spend over 40 hours changing time across the official residences of Her Majesty The Queen as British Summer Time comes to an end.
A team of Horological Conservators will work through the weekend to adjust the hours, including 450 timepieces at Windsor Castle, 600 at Buckingham Palace and 50 at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

The Royal Collection contains some of the finest historic clocks in existence, many of which are on display to visitors at Windsor Castle and The Palace of Holyroodhouse.
They reflect mechanical innovation over the centuries and the tastes of successive monarchs.
“Among the 1500 timepieces in the Royal Collection are musical clocks, astronomical clocks, miniature clocks and turret clocks,” said Royal Family
