In their infamous whiny interview with Oprah Winfrey the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claimed they were married in their back garden by the Archbishop of Canterbury three days prior to the big ceremony in St. George's Chapel in Windsor. Archbishop Welby is refusing to comment because he claims it is a private matter. I find that a very unconvincing argument. When the Sussexes' interview was aired, and allegedly watched by millions, they made it a very public matter. Indeed, under both Church of England law and English secular law marriage is a matter of public record. Many of the claims made by the whinging Sussexes have been fact checked and found to be untrue. The wedding they claimed to have had in their garden would have been unlawful for a whole raft of reasons. Do you agree that the Archbishop should clarify the situation or keep quiet? I can see his clarification being helpful to many of the Church of England's clergy. I wonder how many will now approach their local priest and ask for a private ceremony with the vows they composed. I would like to share with you this amusing story. I read something quiet funny on a blog recently. A vicar had gone through the wedding ceremony with a couple a few days prior to the actual event at a practice. He had taken the couple through the vows. At the actual wedding just before the vows the groom pulled out a slip of paper on which he said were the vows they had composed and wanted to use. The vicar told them he was returning to the vestry. The couple had to decide whether they wished to continue the ceremony with the approved legal vows. If they did not come back to him with a positive response within five minutes he was off back to the vicarage and informed them he would be keeping the fee, too.
