Service for new members of the Royal Victorian Order

Date: May 16, 2018 - 6:30 pm

On Wednesday 16 May, the chapel fulfils its role as the chapel of the Royal Victorian Order. Many of the visitors to the Chapel during the week are curious about the Order. It was founded by Queen Victoria in 1896 as a means of recognising service to Royal Family. It has five grades: knights or dames grand cross (GCVO), knights or dames commander (KCVO/DCVO), commanders (CVO), lieutenants (LVO) and members (MVO). The armorial plates of the knights and dames grand cross can be seen on the oak panels on the chapel walls. Our congratulations go to those who have been recently appointed to the order by command of HM The Queen. We welcome them to their chapel.
