This morning, our class attended the 10 am Westminster Abbey. We viewed this service to immerse ourselves in the United Kingdom's culture.
The Dean and Chapter is responsible for worship at the Abbey, for the care of the building and for running a world famous visitor attraction.
Westminster Abbey became a popular venue for Royal weddings when Princess Patricia of Connaught chose it for her marriage to the Honourable Alexander Ramsay in 1919. It was the first time for 650 years that the Abbey had been used for a Royal wedding. Most recently, on April 29, 2011 Prince William married Miss Catherine Middleton in Westminster Abbey.
