The religious building was constructed in 1904 and it was then enlarged in the 1950s.

The website adds: "Our Chapel is valued as the quiet centre of Lambrook, presenting all those who enter with an opportunity to pause for reflection in the midst of the busyness of School life."

Lambrook has a chapel for the children to go and reflect 

It hosts four services a week, including a Saturday morning service which the parents and the families of pupils can also attend.

When asked how her children were coping, Princess Kate revealed: "The children are doing well and they are being looked after at school." However, one crowd member was told George was said to understand the loss of his great-grandmother more than his younger siblings. One well-wisher also explained: "She said they were keeping things as normal as possible for the children.

Princess Kate greeted crowds on Thursday alongside her husband 

"She says the children were settling in well to their new school and Kate was grateful for the support. I joked I had to be quick because I had to do the school run and she said she was heading back to London to do it as well."

The royal couple's three children are nine, seven and four and they started at their new school on 8 September, the same day Her Majesty died aged 96 at Balmoral. When reports broke of the Queen being ill, Prince William rushed to Balmoral to see his grandmother, while his wife Princess Kate remained in Windsor to collect the children from school.
