Prince Charles has at last made an honest woman of his long-term companion, Camilla Parker-Bowles, and they are now safely united in the bonds of Holy Matrimony.
I do find it ironic that the C of E will refuse them a marriage ceremony in Church, yet will give them a Service of Blessing after their marriage in a Register Office. Seems rather pointless to argue the issue in this way.
If they are not worthy of being married in church, surely they are not worthy of a blessing by the Church`s priests, either.......
Anyway, they have eventually got their act together, and done the decent thing at long last.
We watched the Blessing ceremony, and were pleased to see that a Russian singer (from an organisation of whom Prince Chrales is a Patron) was invited to sing a setting of the Nicene Creed in Russian.
Getting some Orthodoxy into the service via the back door, I suspect :-)
