The Prince of Wales visited Christ Church Spitalfields in London this morning and toured the newly restored crypt. After being greeted by local schoolchildren singing hymns, The Prince joined church members for a tour of the renovated space. 

This 18th century church has undergone extensive restoration and its crypt was recently refurbished. The crypt now has many uses, including a dedicated prayer room, exhibition space and café.
