In many ways, I think that HM is the last of her kind; and this includes her overt Christianity. Although, I was encouraged by Kate and William's own prayer being included in their marriage ceremony.

All the palaces do have private chapels so the Queen and other members of the family can attend services there. We don't see them all the time simply because the press don't cover them every Sunday.

I have been to the Queen's Chapel at St James' and the minister there is one of the Queen's private chaplains. I asked if members of the royal family attended the Queen's Chapel and she said rarely - but they might turn up one Sunday and not again for a couple of months.

Charles and Camilla are regularly seen at the church at Tetbury but the locals respect them and so let them get on with their worship in private.

The military bases where William and Harry are based also have chapels so it is reasonable to assume that they attend church there sometimes.

For the record...

The Telegraph, 7 October 2012

Royal role

While Julian Ovenden was winning plaudits for his performance in the new musical Finding Neverland, the Old Etonian’s father was, quietly, celebrating a great honour from the Queen.

Canon John Ovenden, who retired as one of the monarch’s chaplains in July, has been appointed as Canon Emeritus of St George’s Chapel, Windsor.
