A LEADING Church of England bishop has declared that the Prince of Wales is required to apologise to Andrew Parker Bowles for breaking up his marriage to Camilla.
David Stancliffe, the Bishop of Salisbury, said church rules dictated that the prince should atone for committing adultery. The bishop‚Äôs intervention demonstrates the church‚Äôs determination to extract a price for its endorsement of the wedding.
Stancliffe, who is the church‚Äôs principal authority on the rules of worship, has made it clear that Prince Charles and his bride would have to do more than simply repeat the formulaic words of a confession during the church service.
‚ÄúThe Prince of Wales and Mrs Parker Bowles will be taking part in prayers of penitence at the service of prayer and dedication following their civil marriage,‚ÄĚ he said in a statement.
