Archbishop: Prince William, Kate Middleton Are "Unpretentious"
Religion and the royals!
The Archbishop of Canterbury, who is the spiritual head of the Church of England and will marry Prince William and Kate Middleton next week, praised the couple in a video released Thursday.
"I've been very struck by the way in which William and Catherine have approached this great event. They've thought through what they want for themselves, but also what they want to say," he said.
The Archbishop said Prince William, 28, and Middleton, 29, had a "clear sense" of what their wedding meant and hoped their public commitment would inspire others with a message of hopefulness and generosity.
"They're responsible to the whole society, and responsible to God for their relationship… I think that they are deeply unpretentious people, and that message about taking that responsibility sensibly, realistically, courageously, comes over very strongly in conversation with them."
He added: "I hope they'll be given the strength and the persistence to go on showing the rest of us what's possible for the whole of their life together."
