Royal Peculiars

A Royal Peculiar is a church that belongs directly to the monarch and not to any diocese or province. The concept originated in Anglo-Saxon times and developed as a result of the relationship between the Norman and Plantagenet kings and the English Church. We know of these Royal Peculiars:

St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle (The Queen's Free Chapel of St George in Windsor Castle)
The Chapel Royal, St James's Palace
The Queen's Chapel, St James's Palace
The Chapel Royal, Hampton Court
The Chapel of St John the Evangelist in the Tower of London
The Chapel of St Peter ad Vincula in the Tower of London
The Royal Chapel of All Saints, Windsor
The Queen's Chapel of the Savoy, London
The Royal Foundation of St Katharine, London

The Chapel of St Edward, King and Martyr, Cambridge
The Palace of Holyrood
The Collegiate Church of St Peter, Westminster (Westminster Abbey)
