The order of service used by the Archbishop of Canterbury at the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton to go on show at Lambeth Palace.

Also being exhibited are the Book of Common Prayer used at Queen Victoria’s wedding, along with a letter from the future King George VI thanking the then archbishop for his wedding to Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon.

Millions of people tuned in to watch the wedding of William and Kate last April, which was conducted by Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams.

The exhibition, called Royal Devotion: Monarchy And The Book Of Common Prayer, brings together items from the library of Lambeth Palace as well as loans from the Royal Family.

Dr Williams said: “We are delighted to be able to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee year with this special exhibition looking at the close relationship between the Monarchy and the Church.

“We hope that visitors to Lambeth Palace this summer will come away with a deeper understanding of this shared inheritance and connection, told through a series of exquisite and culturally significant artefacts held by the Library on behalf of the nation since 1610.”

The exhibition will run from Tuesday May 1 to Saturday July 14.
