Former Archbishop John Sentamu Says Prince Philip and Queen Elizabeth’s Marriage Was ‘Deeply Rooted in Jesus Christ’

The Duke of Edinburgh and the Queen’s marriage was so strong because they were “so deeply rooted in Jesus Christ”, Dr John Sentamu has said.

The former archbishop of York said he and the duke had first discussed faith when Philip was deeply troubled about his children and their marriages.

Speaking to The Andrew Marr Show, Dr Sentamu said: “I think it was the ambassador’s dinner at Buckingham Palace and he really was feeling very, very sorry for some of the things that were happening in his family – particularly his sons.

“He said, ‘What would you say to me about the trouble that was happening with all my family?’

“I said, ‘Well, your royal highness, you are a family like any other family, and every family goes through good times and bad times.

“‘The important thing for me is that you should realise that if people are married they are not just a couple, there is a third and that’s Jesus Christ, and they should begin to go to Jesus Christ’.

“He said, ‘Of course, the Queen and I are so strong in Jesus Christ’.”
