Sir: Prayers for the Royal Family as a whole certainly predate the 1935 edition of the Prayer Book (Letters, 24 August).

The grace after meat said in the hall of the Middle Temple after dinner for more than two centuries ends with the words: 'God save his Church, the Queen, all the Royal family and this realm. God send us peace and truth, in Christ our Lord.'

Yours faithfully,
