The Queen's Chapel

Another of those wee gems you stumble upon from time to time. The Queen's chapel was built between 1623 and 1627 when it became the private chapel of Charles I bride Henrietta Maria of France. It's small and gives the sense of peace and serenity I guess the ruling monarch might like away from all the pomp and ceremony. Here the ruling monarch reigns supreme. The clergy here are appointed or fired or whatever by the monarch. The Bishop of Canterbury has no jurisdiction here.
