The connection between the Royal Family and St George’s Chapel is a strong one. Members of the Royal Family have been baptised, married and buried in the Chapel.
The Queen is closely involved with the life of the College, attends Mattins at the Chapel on Easter Day and attends an annual service of thanksgiving on Garter Day. There are many other times when the Queen and the Royal Family come to St George’s. In 2011, apart from Easter Day and Garter Day, the Queen attended a service marking the 90th birthday of The Duke of Edinburgh on the feast of Pentecost and a memorial service for the 11th Duke of Grafton.
