After visiting the dollhouse and State Apartments continue on down the hill towards the exit to St. George's Chapel. At the entrance you can buy a guide to the chapel for 25p or there's a lot of excellent information on the attached website or you can listen to the audioguide that is included as part of the Windsor Castle admission.

The chapel dates back to 1475 during the reign of Edward IV. Ten monarchs are buried in the Chapel, including Edward IV, Henry VIII with Jane Seymour, the only wife he didn't divorce or behead (OK, the last one survived too but perhaps only because she outlived him), Charles I who was beheaded after the Civil War, George V and Queen Mary; and George VI and the Queen mum, the father and mother of the current Queen.
