There are indeed anomalies. The entire situation was an anomaly, nobody doubts that. The Lord Chancellor said it was legal. Therefore, the legality is intact. The opinions of others in that matter...

The Archbishop is the highest prelate by the grace of the Sovereign. I would imagine that that grace would fall by the wayside pretty quickly if he made the (stupid) decision to refuse to do a...

What is the authority of the author in such matters? It's very easy to write something in a book.

Even if the Archbishop refused, there is still another Archbishop, several Bishops, and probably...

Only by the grace of the Sovereign, however. It is the prerogative of the Queen, if she wants, to remove the styles and titles the wives have as Royal Highnesses and Princesses. She does not have the...

The marriage wasn't what did that, however. That was simply an exercise of the Sovereign's prerogative as fount of honour. It would have only been a morganatic marriage if the Duchess would have had...
