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 2014, apart from Easter Day and Garter Day, The Queen & The Duke of Edinburgh attended a gathering in the Chapel to mark the 150th anniversary of the Royal College of Organists.
