King George IV's cottage at Windsor

Thursday, January 17, 2013
Loretta reports:

What's here called the His Majesty's Cottage became the Royal Lodge, the residence at present of Prince Andrew.  It's by no means the same building.  King William IV had all but the conservatory demolished after his brother King George IV* died.  Why?  Good question.  I wondered the same about King George IV’s demolishing Carlton House.
