The royal family and their conducts are some of the fascinating things for the general public. Their celebrations are extravagance and yet traditional at the same time.
Princess Beatrice’s wedding venue is announced, and everyone is excited to hear that it is the same place where Queen Victoria and Prince Albert tied their knot in 1840.
The venue was announced on Friday, and this place holds a substantial role in the history of the royal family. Princess Beatrice and her finance Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi will marry in the Chapel Royal located in St. James Palace. The wedding function will take place on May 29. Following the celebrations will hold in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
The Chapel has many memories of the traditions of the royal family. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert got married here in February 1840. It is also famous for celebrating the religious fest when Prince George and Prince Louis were christened here in recent years. Amusingly, Princess Beatrice was also baptized in this Chapel back in 1988.
The Chapel is not primarily bound for the royal family festivities. It is a working chapel for the general public and in addition to that holds significant occasions. Although it is not as big as the Chapel St.George, where Prince Harry and Meghan Markel got married in May 2018, which is the same one where prince Beatrice’s sister, Princess Eugene, also got married, though this Chapel is enormous, it can accommodate almost 150 royal guests.
But St. George’s Chapel can accommodate up to 800 guests in its royal room. In contrast to that, the Chapel where Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in 2011 can host 8000 guests at one time.
The royal Royal Chapel
The Royal Chapel was built in 1540; since then, it had been beautifully transformed most remarkably by Sir Robert Smirke back in 1837. It has the finishing of wood panel lining walls that complements slender stained glass behind the altar.
The whole structure of the Chapel is built in an exclusive style and pattern; even the ceiling of the Chapel is manufactured, most exceptionally exhibiting vibrant coats of royal engraves painted in a mesmerizing honeycomb pattern. The ceiling art is the masterpiece of the renowned German painter Hans Holbein. The sitting arrangement is set in a way that the majority of the seats are facing inwards, creating a friendly aura among the guests.
Unfortunately, for us, the ceremony won’t be broadcasted.
