Daily entries from the 17th century London diary
Desinged by Inigo Jones and completed in 1627, it hosted Roman Catholic services for the next three queens, and served others during the interregnum and when there were no Royal Catholics in power. Today it is perhaps Jones' least altered surviving work.

The Queen's Chapel is a chapel in central London, England, that was designed by Inigo Jones and built between 1623 and 1625 as an external adjunct to St. James's Palace for Roman Catholic queen Henrietta Maria. It is one of the facilities of the British monarch's personal religious establishment, the Chapel Royal, and should not be confused with the 1540 building known as the Chapel Royal within the palace and just across Marlborough road.
It was built as a Roman Catholic chapel at a time when the construction of Catholic churches was prohibited in England, and was used by Charles I's Catholic queen Henrietta Maria. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen%27s_Chapel
