Inaugurated the newly restored Russian Chapel in San Anton Palace. This is one of the two chapels in the palace. Starting out as a chapel for Protestant worship, for the British Governors, the chapel was given over to the Orthodox denomination in the second half of the 19thvCentury. This change was affected due to the fact that Prince Alfred, son of Queen Victoria, was stationed in Malta and was married to Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna, daughter Tsar Alexander II. She had introduced in the matrimonial contract the right to practice her religion and this chapel was placed at her disposal.
