Pupils at Upton House School in St Leonard’s Road were thrilled to discover they had won a place on the new Windsor Monopoly board game launched on Friday.

Boys and girls aged two to 11 from the nursery to prep school in the heart of Windsor were visited by Mr Monopoly himself who brought the exciting news along with a giant monopoly board for the children to celebrate in a special assembly.

The school has been an integral part of the Windsor community since it was founded in 1936, numbering this year’s royal bride Eugenie and her sister Beatrice among its students. Its pupils campaigned hard to win their place on the board.
