The Britsh Royals And Religion -Must Read!

Up until 2015, members of the British Royal Family were not allowed to marry a person of Catholic faith. 
The 1701 Act of Settlement is an act of Parliament that stipulated that the monarch must be Anglican, and that no Roman Catholic, nor anyone married to a Catholic, could hold the Crown. 







Royals And Religion.


Up until 2015, members of the British Royal Family were not allowed to marry a person of Catholic faith.
The 1701 Act of Settlement is an act of Parliament that stipulated that the monarch must be Anglican, and that no Roman Catholic, nor anyone married to a Catholic, could hold the Crown. 


It was all thanks to King Henry VIII who established the Church of England with the Anglican Christian community because the pope wouldn't permit annulment from his wives.

Its impact was recently seen in 2008, when Peter Phillips, Princess Anne's son, married Autumn Kelly, who was Catholic. In order for him to remain 11th in line to the throne, she was required to convert to Anglicanism. Another example is that of the Queen’s cousin, Prince Michael of Kent; he gave up his claim to the throne to marry Princess Michael of Kent, who observes the Catholic faith.


This did not impact William and Kate, as Kate was christened in an Anglican Church at five months old. She then decided to be confirmed in the Church of England shortly before her wedding, so that she could receive Holy Communion along with William. William was 14 when he was confirmed.
The Succession to the Crown Act (2013) ended the provisions by which those who marry Roman Catholics are disqualified from the line of succession. However, the monarchs themselves must still remain loyal to the Church of England.


Therefore, assuming they get married, this rule would not affect Prince Harry and Meghan Markle if Meghan is of Catholic faith (I'm not sure of her faith). Royals can now marry someone of any faith or no faith.
The Queen is the current 'Supreme Governor of the Church of England', as well as the 'Defender of the Faith'. Prince Charles has said that when he becomes King he will take the title 'Defender of Faith' instead, to include all faiths. William and George will also one day hold these titles. 


The Queen attends church services most weeks and has long been a devout Christian. In her 2014 Christmas Day message, she said, "Christ's example has taught me to seek to respect and value all people of whatever faith or none."
I will talk about marriage and divorce in the royal family next.

Good. Marrying from one's faith is better than having 2 different christian faith. What works for you, might not work for the other person.

Anyway people are marrying from different faith and this has helped in some marriages

I think this law had to do with king Henry the 8th, of the Tudor dynasty. He needed to be divorced by the pope who refused,of his Catholic wife from Spain, and wanted to marry Ann boleyn who he later beheaded anyway.... So he formed his own church, church of England, the Anglican church.
