There doesn't seem to be anything online about it all.

When the ceiling of the chapel at BP was raised by Pennethorne it did look odd & made the garden front asymetrical.

I found this photos of the The Palace Chapel altar, Buckingham Palace

I wonder if anything was salvaged from the ruins?

What a pity the photo is not in colour as the gold plate will look stunning.

Yes I wonder if anything was salvaged too. The painting looks like John the Baptist & Jesus but I don't know the artist or indeed if that is the scene for certain. Or maybe Jesus & Mary Magdalene? Or maybe the resurrection of Lazarus?

I think it could be Jesus & Saint Mary Magdalene or John The Baptist and Saint Elizabeth?

It's a mystery. We will get to the bottom of it I'm sure.

It seems a baptismal scene, so I don't see how that would be related to Mary Magdalene. And are you thinking about John the Baptist's mother? I haven't see paintings with her at the river Jordan.

Durham's suggestion makes most sense to me; especially since there is a dove pictured, which is what is also described regarding Jesus' baptism.

I think you already solved the mystery yourself . I cannot think of any other biblical scene that would fit what we see here.

The Palace chapel as depicted in the painting of the wedding of Princess Maud of Wales and Prince Carl of Denmark at the Palace chapel in July 1896.

What a lovely picture.

Having a look online I hadn't realised that the chapel was used so much for family events like christenings. I always knew that the Gloucesters were married there because of a change of plan following the sudden death of Alice Scott's father.

I still don't know who the artist of the huge painting is.

There seem to be a lot of other smaller painting too which surprised me as I as thought such images would e frowned upon as being too Catholic.

I get the impression that the present monarch is quite Low Church but maybe Victoria was more High Church in her beliefs & observances?

In the Victorian age there was resurgence in church restoration and also in religious art and decoration in the Church of England.Not sure if Queen Victoria approved mind you

The Albert Memorial Chapel in St George's is incredibly ornate. Very High Victorian.

Quite the opposite. She disliked ritualism & bishops and preferred the austere Presbyterian service over the Church of England's.

Thank you I didn't know that. What were her formative experiences I wonder. Her mother was a Lutheran I think?

Yes, her mother was a Lutheran and so was dear Albert. It seems that as a whole the BRF leaned toward the Low Church, possibly because of the Lutheran influence (they almost all married German Lutherans).

I’m not a fan of the source, & there’s a pix of the white drawing room at Windsor Castle mixed in - but this article has floor plan diagrams & a collection of photos of many of the large rooms in Buckingham Palace. Note the photos have all been published previously, but I enjoyed scrolling through them.

Charles is quite high church - but yes the rest are low, especially HMQ.

lol - I remember a tibit from the tabloids about the Queen Mother.
The QM said the Earl of Wessex was a bad Anglican during a engagement. And she was asked if the Earl was then an Atheist . The Queen Mother snooted and she no he is positively Methodist.
