St George’s Chapel Banners of Arms Hand-Painted by Flagmakers

If, like me, you tuned in to watch last weekend’s much-anticipated Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, then you too would have been awe-struck by the magnificent interior of St George’s Chapel in which the couple were married; truly spectacular, utterly remarkable and every bit an appropriate venue for the special occasion.
