The Huguenot Chapel (Black Prince’s Chantry)

The Huguenot Chapel (Black Prince’s Chantry)

The Black Prince’s Chantry was set up at the time of his marriage to Joan Holland (the ‘Fair Maid of Kent’).
In 1575, the Crypt was given over to Huguenot refugees from France and Flanders on order of Queen Elizabeth I. Some 300 years later, the Crypt was taken back, but the Chantry remained at the disposal of the Huguenot community and to this day, a French Service is held here every Sunday at 15.00 hrs.
