Rev Canon Dr Robert Innes, Chancellor of the Pro-Cathedral in Brussels has been appointed a Chaplain to the Queen.
The honorary office of Chaplain involves an invitation to preach annually in the Chapel Royal and other less formal duties, The Queen has a number of Chaplains appointed to offer her spiritual guidance and support.
Our Diocesan Bishop, Rt Rev Dr Geoffrey Rowell, says ‘I am delighted to learn that Canon Robert Innes, the Chancellor of our Pro-Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Brussels has been appointed as a Chaplain to the Queen. This is a well-deserved honour for Robert, but it is also an honour for the Diocese, as I believe Robert is the first Chaplain to the Queen to be appointed from the clergy of the Diocese in Europe.’
We offer our congratulations and prayers for Canon Robert as he takes on his new role – which entitles him to wear special red cassock.
