The visit marks the 60th anniversary of the centre’s opening and the 70th anniversary of the Windsor Old People’s Welfare Association.
During her tour of the facilities the Queen popped into an exercise class that aims to keep participants mobile and independent.
She also visited volunteers preparing lunch in the kitchen.
The Windsor Old People’s Welfare Association (WOPWA), a registered charity, was formed in 1948 to help the widows, widowers, and elderly relatives of Windsor residents who lost their lives during the two World Wars.

One of the first financial donations was made by the Queen Mother.
In 1958 the building was completed and the Queen granted permission for the hall to be named after her father, the late King George VI.
Her Majesty opened the premises in July 1958 and subsequently returned to mark WOPWA’s 25th and 50th anniversaries.
Today the Centre operates as a lunch and social club, providing a safe and friendly environment for older Windsor residents.
Members are encouraged to maintain their independence and well-being through activities and social interaction.
