I'm sure it's just a typo from an assistant but the new Bishop of Chelmsford is a woman, not a man. She has a very interesting and tragic story of fleeing the revolution in Iran as a child.

Nice to know The Queen is back to work and keeping busy.

That's an interesting approach; mostly to keep her majesty safe I suppose.

I've met her and she is a gifted speaker and has caught interest and done a lot of specialised work due to her background but her quick career trajectory isn't entirely unusual. There's a lot of discussion about certain candidates who are on the Cathedral track don't do many years "down in the trenches" of parish priest life vs those who spend 20 years as local priests and then move up the ladder.

The Bishop of London Sarah Mullally is another one who made the leap from being ordained (2002) to St Pauls Cathedral in 2018.

As with any organisation there's also a lot of politics involved, women weren't even allowed to be Bishops until 2014 and the CofE has been promoting a lot of them since then.
