Prince Philip leaves St Mary Magdalene’s, Sandringham, after a service, on Christmas Day 2016
On this week’s podcast, the Rt Revd Graham James, a former Bishop of Norwich, reflects on the faith of Prince Philip.
Bishop James preached numerous times at Sandringham and was quizzed by the Duke of Edinburgh about the content of his sermons, as well as wider theological matters.
“It was a questioning, searching faith,” Bishop James says. “There’s a sense in which his own restlessness, which was obvious throughout the whole of his life, was also applied to his religion. But that, I think, was why it meant a lot to him. He didn’t want a routine religion: he wanted one which challenged his mind as well as his spirit.”
Bishop James writes about Prince Philip in this week’s Church Times.
