The Royal Seat

The chair and kneeler especially made for Her Majesty the Queen, when she visited the Cathedral in 1995 - the first British Monarch to attend a Roman Catholic Liturgy since the Reformation. It is kept in St George's chapel.

Would it be hybristic to suggest that the royal household should offer a small remuneration for the preservation of the royal seat?

Did the Queen attend a Mass, or a prayer/paraliturgical service?

If she did attend a Mass, did she actually kneel at various times?

Photos anyone?????????

I hope you will report on the excellent sermon by the Dean of St Paul's on Sunday?

Is that correct? I thought Edward VII was present at a Requiem Mass at Spanish Place for the assassinated Portugese King in 1908
