Albert Memorial Chapel

“Located inside the Albert Memorial Chapel (Lady Chapel of St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle’s Lower Ward) (the public isn’t allowed to go in here for some reason.) Oddly enough, Prince Albert, the namesake, isn’t buried in this chapel. Henry VIII wanted to be buried here but there were a few political issues after his death in terms of burial so he was simply buried with his third wife Jane Seymour in the main Chapel of St. George. (The appearance of the Albert Memorial Chapel is mostly Victorian).”

  1. Another beautiful find! Despite its beauty I’m not too anxious to make use of the accommodations for burial so I think I’ll just stand outside and admire the craftsmanship.
