Letter: C of E ignores Royal Family

Click to follow
Sir: Paul Handley (Faith & Reason, 23 November) must be lucky in his church attendance to imagine that the state prayers for the Royal Family are said during Church of England services every Sunday: such prayers have been disgracefully neglected for many years. The Bishop of Whitby has been quoted as saying: "These prayers are very, very rarely used in most churches these days." This omission is the more shameful as I understand that Roman Catholics and Jews pray regularly for the Royal Family.
