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.

In 1995,Her Majesty The Queen attended an ecumenical service at the RC Westminster Cathedral,the first British Monarch to set foot inside an RC Church in Britain since the Reformation.The queen came at the invitation of the late Cardinal Basil Hume.

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.

Religious practice in the UK is a bit of an odd thing anyway - as most forum members here will know, Anglicanism is the 'official state religion', with the Queen of course being the Supreme Governor of the Church of England. /QUOTE]


Anglicanism is only the "official state religion" in England, not the UK.

I remember learning at school that, during the Reformation, both Luther and Calvin opposed the use of private masses as practiced by the Roman Catholic Church. I believe the reason for that was related to the Reformers' belief that the sacrament of the Eucharist (or Lord's Supper) was not valid unless the consecration of the bread and wine was done in public.

From your message, I infer though that the Queen attends private Sunday services at Windsor. Is that practice allowed then in the Church of England ?

Yes. The Church of England remained more closely aligned to Roman Catholicism than either the Lutheran or Calvinistic churches.

Henry and Elizabeth broke with Rome but the liturgy and practices were definitely more attuned to the old church then the newer ones developing elsewhere.

Private chapels don't mean an individual either - private simply means limited in the number of people who can attend e.g. the private chapels in the palaces would be available for the people in the palaces to attend.

All the royal palaces have private chapels where the royal family and their loyal retainers can go but not the ordinary members of the public.

If you think about it this is also a security measure.

Pity that the historic Abbey church was left a ruin and never restored to its former glory.

I think that Charles is an "overt Christian" too and certainly though he might not talk about it, has a faith.. but he's intellectualy curious enough to be interested in other religions.

I would even go further and say that not only is Charles religious when it comes to practicing his faith, he's also a very spirituality minded person. One thing he's stated a few times is that there is a lack of focus these days on a person's soul and bringing it into harmony with the world around one.

I believe there was a plan many years ago to restore it but for some reason it didn't happen. The other royal palace in Edinburgh, the one in the castle, doesn't have a chapel either although it did have an oratory during the time of the Stuart Kings. The royal palace in Falkland has a chapel but as the Queen is a Presbyterian in Scotland she wouldn't be worshipping there as it's a Catholic chapel where Mass is celebrated every Sunday.

Probably not but the bodies that are buried within the walls would have to be exhumed and reburied somewhere else.

Buckingham Palace doesn't have a chapel anymore. It got bombed during WWII. They built the Queen's Gallery where the private chapel stood.

Yes that's correct but what I meant was the other people buried within the ruins. You actually walk over their graves as you move around.

Princess Anne church going habits

I am not sure where to put this in the forum for Princess Anne, so I will put it here and will mods move it to the correct place? What are Princess Anne's church going habits?

Does Queen Elizabeth II have a specific pew in each church she attends?

I would imagine so, for security if no other reason, being in the front allows for a fast exit.
