THE QUEEN was praised yesterday after converting a room at Windsor Castle into a MOSQUE. She took the historic step so Muslim staff have a quiet place to pray during Ramadan, Islam’s holiest month.

And the part-time sales assistant who asked for the special area has hailed the Queen as “an example to the world”.

Thrilled Nagina Chaudhry, 19, of Slough, Berks, said: “I can’t believe the Queen went to so much effort. She pulled out the stops to create a prayer room for me and other Muslim staff.

“It was an incredible act of kindness within her own home.

“The Queen is the head of the Church of England so it’s great to know she respects other people’s faith.”

Muslims fast during daylight through Ramadan, which began on Sunday. The prayer room is in a former office in the Saxon Tower, close to the castle’s St George’s Chapel.

A castle spokeswoman said: “We have staff from all walks of life. So when people request facilities for their beliefs we try and provide them.”
