King Edward VII CoI

Duke Street

10 Duke Street,
St. James’s, London

Under the authority of the Supreme Council 33° of the Ancient and Accepted Rite for England and Wales and its Districts and Chapters Overseas, King Edward VII Rose Croix Chapter of Improvement meets at 10 Duke Street, St. James’s, London, SW1Y 6BS, on the first Thursday of every month throughout the year (with the exception of August) at 5.30pm for a prompt start at 5.45pm.

The preferred dress code is formal casual. Regalia is not required, but visitors should be duly vouched for. The Enthronement Ceremony is rehearsed in lieu of the Third Point at the January, April, July and October meetings.

All Princes, particularly those who are about to take office or who are currently in office, are encouraged to attend the regular meetings of the Chapter of Improvement. The meetings are welcoming and friendly with the aim of enabling Princes to reach a good standard of ritual and floor work. Under the Risings, at the end of each regular meeting, the Princes are requested to volunteer for an office of choice at the next regular meeting or subsequent meetings. If requested, the Second Point can be split for two Princes to participate. Every Prince is given the opportunity to take part. Each ritual Point is overseen by a designated Preceptor, who will give the necessary time to advise and assist each Officer and, if necessary, to prompt as ritual books are not allowed to be open during the meeting. From experience, the Preceptors see improvement in many Princes, who keep a watchful eye on proceedings. The Preceptors are always available at the meetings to answer any queries relating to the ritual of the Order.

Princes, who are unable to attend except on an ad-hoc basis, are also welcome and the Preceptors will endeavour to do their best to assist them.
