It is with great pleasure that the marriage of HRH The Prince of Wales and Mrs Camilla Parker Bowles is announced. It will take place on Saturday 9th April 2005.

The Prince of Wales has said: “Mrs Parker Bowles and I are absolutely delighted. It will be a very special day for us and our families.”

Princes William and Harry released a joint statement: "We are both very happy for our father and Camilla, and we wish them all the luck in the future."

Mrs Parker Bowles will use the title HRH The Duchess of Cornwall after marriage. It is intended that Mrs Parker Bowles should use the title HRH The Princess Consort when The Prince of Wales accedes to The Throne.

It will comprise a civil ceremony at the Guildhall in Windsor and will be followed by a service of prayer and dedication in St George’s Chapel over which the Archbishop of Canterbury will preside.
