imageAn Anglican bishop has now apologized for suggesting the forthcoming marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton is doomed and an expensive “national flim-flam.”

The Rt. Rev. Pete Broadbent, Bishop of Willesden, had said, “I give the marriage seven years,” on his Facebook page and making it clear that the royal family had many “broken marriages and philanderers.”

He is now saying, more as a bishop of the church should say, “I wish Prince William and Kate Middleton a happy and lifelong marriage, and will hold them in my prayers.”
