The Royal Maundy Service will be held in St George’s Chapel this year. Royal Maundy was previously held in St George’s in 2016, the year of The Queen’s 90th birthday, and in 2018. Men and women from all over the country received Maundy money in small leather purses handed to them by The Queen. This year there will be 93 men and 93 women receiving Maundy money from Her Majesty; this is because since the 15th century the number of recipients has been related to the years of the Sovereign’s life. Please note that attendance at the Royal Maundy service is by invitation only.
The photograph shows Her Majesty on the West Steps in 2018 after the service. In the photograph Her Majesty is accompanied by the Royal Almonry team, the Dean and Canons of Windsor, the Yeomen of the Guard and the Virger of St George’s Chapel.
