The Guild is very proud to announce that today 9th. November, 2017 it was confirmed by 10 Downing Street that our Patron The Rt Rev and Rt Hon Richard Chartres KCVO, retired Lord Bishop of London, has been made a Life Peer. This wonderful news will mean that Bishop Richard's great wisdom will continue to be voiced in the House of Lords.

Bishop Richard has already told the Council that he is very happy and pleased to continue his role with us as a Patron after his retirement, having served as the 132nd. Lord Bishop of London for the last 20 years. Bishop Richard continues in his role as the Dean of HM Chapels Royal until his successor the 133rd Bishop of London is appointed.

The Council of the Guild wish Bishop Richard many congratulations on his ennoblement.
