Royals celebrate St Paul's tercentenary

The Queen is attending a special service to mark the 300th anniversary of the opening of the new St Paul's Cathedral in London.

She will be accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales to the famous building designed by Sir Christopher Wren.

The special service - which may have extra meaning for Prince Charles because it was where he married Diana, Princess of Wales - marks the climax of months of events marking the cathedral's tercentenary.

The present Dean of St Paul's will preach and the blessing will be given by the Bishop of London.

The invitation list includes senior churchmen and former Cathedral clergy.
