Reflections On Important Aspects Of
The ceremony will be held in St. George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle — built more than 900 years ago, it is the oldest occupied castle in the world — and the place where the queen spends most of her weekends. Services at the chapel are free and open to anyone. If, however, you want to visit the chapel (and not attend services), you must buy a ticket at the Windsor Castle admissions office (2018 prices are £21.20 for adults, or about $28.30; £19.30 for students with ID and those over 60; £12:30 for disabled visitors and children under 17; free for children under 5; £54.70 for a family of two adults and three children under 17; prices are reduced when the State Apartments are closed). (Note that you cannot take photographs inside St. George’s Chapel.) Also keep in mind that Windsor is a working castle, so expect airport-style security. You can view the rules and hours at Royalcollection.org.uk/visit/windsorcastle . Prince Harry is hardly the first royal to marry in the chapel, which dates to the 15th century. There have been more than a dozen royal weddings there, including that of Prince of Wales (later Edward VII) and Princess Alexandra of Denmark more than 150 years ago, in 1863. In 2005 the chapel was the site of a service of prayer and dedication after the marriage of the Prince of Wales (Prince Harry’s father) and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
