Hampton Court and Windsor Castle in one day (do able or not?

I will be in London in late March. I will be staying at London YHA Central near Picadilly Tube Station.

I will be using the 3 day London Pass and would like to devote one day to Hampton court and Windsor Castle. Is this do able?

Could someone tell me an inexpensive way to go to both castles?

Thanks

I would be able to skip the queue with the London Pass at Windsor. I am looking for help with the public transportation information.

If the best route is to go to Hampton Court first, I can get a very early start and be there by opening hour. Then head to Windsor in late afternoon.

Also, I can either Friday through Tuesday. Which would have more trains per hour leaving from London? Which day would have the least and most congestion of people?

If you follow the links in comment [1] you'll doubtless see that it's not viable/practical. You would have to travel all the way back from one venue to Clapham Junction (2 stops from Waterloo) and then all the way out to venue 2.

If you do want to see both, then I'd do them on separate days.
