The grand chandeliers in the Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle have been given a final check and polish in preparation for the room's reopening to the public.

Obscured by scaffolding for 20 months during renovation work, the five intricate cut-glass features were lowered from the 14 metre ceiling almost to the floor to be inspected and cleaned by experts, wearing white gloves.
