The Prince was the first member of the royal family to marry in a civil ceremony in England. Dr Stephen Chetney, a Fellow at All Souls College, Oxford questioned whether Charles and Camilla could marry in a civil ceremony, as The Royal Family was specifically excluded from the law which instituted civil marriages in England (the Marriage Act 1836). On 14 February the The BBC's Panorama [2] uncovered government documents dating from 1956 and 1964 which suggest that it may not be lawful for members of the royal family to marry in a civil ceremony in England and Wales, though it would be lawful in Scotland. Clarence House rejected this. Lord Falconer of Thoroton told the House of Lords [3] that the 1836 Act had been repealed by the Marriage Act 1949 which had different wording, and that the British Government were satisfied that it was lawful for the couple to marry by a civil ceremony in accordance with Part III of the 1949 Act. Eleven objections were received by the Cirencester and Chippenham register offices but were all rejected by the Registrar General (and National Statistician) Len Cook determined that a civil marriage would in fact be valid [4], the Human Rights Act 1998 apparently superseding any previously enacted legislation barring members of the royal family from civil marriages. There were calls for a short piece of legislation to remove all doubt, but no legislation was in fact introduced. In fact the matter was never seriously in issue, however, as it is a truism of English law that a statute is pro tanto repealed by a subsequent statute to the extent of any inconsistency, whether or not the prior inconsistent statue is expressly repealed for that or any purpose.

On 17 February, Clarence House announced the marriage's change of venue from Windsor Castle to the Guildhall, Windsor, immediately outside the walls of the castle.

Wedding

The wedding took place at the Guildhall in Windsor 12.30pm BST (12:30 UTC) 9 April 2005. Crowds had gathered on the streets since dawn ahead of the service.

Interestingly, when Princess Anne married Timothy Laurence after having divorced Mark Phillips, she chose to do so in the Church of Scotland, the established Presbyterian body in that country. Remarriage of divorcees is less controversial in the Kirk (as it is known), and the sovereign is automatically a member of the Kirk (in addition to being Supreme Governor of the Church of England). For whatever reason, the Prince of Wales and his bride did not elect for this course of action.

For the wedding, the duchess wore a cream-coloured suit and wide-brimmed cream-coloured hat. For the blessing afterward, she wore a floor-length embroidered pale blue coat over a matching chiffon gown and a dramatic spray of golden feathers in her hair.

Blessing

The wedding was followed by a televised blessing at St George's Chapel, led by the Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, which the Queen and her husband did attend, along with many foreign royals. Along with the congregation attending their post-wedding blessing, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall recited an acknowledgement of past "sins and wickedness" taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer. CNN called it "the strongest act of penitence" in the prayer book, suggesting that the recitation of it is unusual; in fact it is simply the General Confession in the Communion rite and regularly (if not weekly) used at services in Anglican churches world wide. At the conclusion of the blessing, a contralto sang the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed in Russian (and thus without the Filioque clause, which is being increasingly omitted in Anglican liturgy) by way of indicating an affinity for the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches.
