Current News

The Chapel Royal is a living, vibrant church, located at the heart of the historic palace. Everyone is welcome to attend the regular services held in the Chapel Royal and to worship in the place where kings and queens have done so for centuries.

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day, people across the nation pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our brave Service men and women. Remembrance Sunday falls on 9 November, and Choral Matins on that day will be preceded by an Act of Remembrance in the Chapel at 10.55am.

The Feast of Christ the King on 23 November marks the end of the Church year, and its New Year begins on the following Sunday 30 November - the First Sunday of Advent - with the hope of the coming Messiah. Choral Evensong on that day is replaced by a Service of Readings and Music for Advent which marks the beginning of a time of preparation and stillness as we wait in expectation.
