Prince William not a great churchgoer according to UK press

Prince William and his wife KateOne day he will become the Supreme Governor of the Church of England but for now Prince William has not proven himself to be much of a church goer, attending mass only a “handful” of times each year, British tabloid The Daily Mail reveals.

A source that is close to the heir to the British throne and his wife Kate said they “rarely, if ever go to church privately on a Sunday morning, or indeed at any other time in the week.”

The newspaper reported that the dukes of Cambridge only attend the Anglican Church for official ceremonies and feast days prescribed by the Church, when it is absolutely necessary for them to be present. 

In a critical tone, The Daily Mail goes on to say that the Queen on the other hand is a devout Christian who attends church “on a weekly basis.” 

Meanwhile, “Prince Charles, despite his interest in other faiths, particularly Islam, has always been a regular churchgoer.”

When William rises to the throne one day, one of the titles he will inherit is that of  ‘Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England’. 

He will therefore play a determining role in the nomination of some of the country’s most important ecclesiastical figures.
