Prayers to mark Diana anniversary
Diana, Princess of Wales
The prayers talk of Diana's "vulnerability" and "untimely death"
The Archbishop of Canterbury has written two prayers to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales.

They talk about the Princess's "vulnerability", her "tragic and untimely death" and the "hope and joy" she gave to many.

The prayers will be read at a memorial service in London attended by Princes William and Harry on 31 August.

Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams was invited to write them.

Text versions of the prayers have been published on the Church of England website.

A spokeswoman for the Archbishop of Canterbury said: "The prayers are for the service that is taking place in the Guards Chapel.

"We are hoping that they will be used by other churches. If anyone is planning to do anything for the Diana memorial they have got these prayers."
