William and Kate's big day

On Friday HRH Prince William and Ms Kate Middleton will do what many millions do – get married the Anglican way – except their wedding is just a bit more public than most.

The media frenzy is in full swing, but perhaps this short
webcast reflection by the Archbishop of Canterbury helps to put it all in context.

Prayer for the Royal Wedding from Church of England website

God of all grace,

friend and companion,

look in favour on William and Catherine

and all who are made one in marriage.

In your love deepen their love

and strengthen their wills

to keep the promises they will make,

that they may continue

in life-long faithfulness to each other;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
