Both Catholic and Anglican Churches have issued special prayers to be said for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
The Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales has published the following:
Prayer for Prince William and Catherine
we ask your blessing
upon his Royal Highness, Prince William and Catherine
as they pledge their love for each other in marriage.
May your love unite them through their lives.
Grant them the strength to serve you, our country and the Commonwealth with integrity and faithfulness. Through Christ our Lord.
The Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams issued these two prayers for Prince William and Catherine Middleton and all couples preparing for their wedding.
Prayer ahead of the Royal Wedding
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. Amen.
Prayer for school children praying for the Royal Wedding
