The Royal Chapel reviews
Royal chapel with magnificent vaulted ceilings. Evolved with the palace. Fifth chapel of the palace, important for royal events like marriages etc. Integral part if the Royal life.
It is off limits to normal visitors and can only be visited as part of a guided tour. Normal visitors can only view it through a small door in one of the rooms on the upper floor. As expected, the entrance gets pretty crowded but it is worthwhile to wait for your turn and take a few photos. Unfortunately only the upper floor and the ceiling of the chapel can be viewed from here.
