This small chapel is where contemporary royals such as Princess Diana and the Queen Mother have lain in their coffins in the run-up to their funerals. The church was originally built by Inigo Jones in the Palladian style for the French wife of Charles I and was the the first post-Reformation Roman Catholic church erected in England.

The simple interior, illuminated by light streaming through the large windows above the altar, has exquisite 17th-century fittings. It was once part of St James’s Palace but was separated after a fire.
