Queen grants Muslim prayer room
The Queen has given permission for a room in Windsor Castle to be used as an area for Muslims to pray.

The move came after 19-year-old Nagina Chaudhry who works at the visitors' shop in Berkshire, asked for somewhere to pray during Ramadan.

A spokeswoman for Buckingham Palace said an office had been set aside for Miss Chaudhry to use as a lunchtime prayer chamber.

A similar facility for Muslims already exists at Buckingham Palace.
