The Queen of England, Elizabeth 2, today attended Royal Maundy Service at St George’s Chapel.
Her Majesty was joined by her granddaughter Princess Eugenie.
The Royal Maundy is one of the most ancient ceremonies retained in the Church of England.
Monarchs including Elizabeth I have taken part in the ceremony, which falls on the Thursday before Easter and commemorates the Maundy and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles.
By 2017, The Queen had visited every cathedral in the UK for the Royal Maundy Service. This year 93 retired pensioners, all who have made positive contributions to their church, were invited to receive alms from Her Majesty at St. George’s Chapel.
