James Hamilton Goddard, visitor enterprise manager for the Balmoral Estate, has been working with his team to open up the royal residences' entrance hall, red corridor, main and family dining rooms, page’s lobby, library and drawing room to the public.He said: “It’s a magnificent place, I think the King wants people to see (it).
