The Prince of Wales had another engagement today (21/02) as he went to Lambeth Palace to presented the Cranmer Awards; a contest organised annually by the Prayer Book Society.
School pupils from across the country recite a passage of their choice from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
The Book of Common Prayer was compiled by Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, and is still used for services in many churches.
It is the source of many words and phrases we still use today - these include ‘make haste’ and ‘at their wits’ end’.
The Prince of Wales is Patron of The Prayer Book Society and presented the prizes at the inaugural Cranmer Awards which took place 30 years ago, in 1989.
