Rowan Williams on the Royal Wedding

BBC news posted an extended interview with the ABC this morning. You have to go to the BBC website to view it, since they don't enable video embedding (come on, BBC). Although not gripping TV (the chemistry between Rowan and Huw Edwards wouldn't light a candle), it is an interesting chance to hear the Archbishop reflecting on the role of weddings in a society which seems to have little time for marriage.

Two royal wedding links also worth reading:

Cranmer, who is always strong on church and consitutional issues, on the importance of the wedding to the country and to the Church of England.

Clayboy reflects on the unusual choice of the 1928 liturgy for the wedding, and what that says about the past and future of the C of E.
