A church ceremony to bless the marriage of Britain's Prince Charles to Camilla Parker Bowles is under way at St. George's Chapel in the royal family's Windsor Castle.
The prince and Mrs. Parker Bowles were married during an intimate civil ceremony earlier Saturday at the 17th century Windsor Guildhall. Only about 30 guests -- among them Charles' sons Princes William and Harry -- were in attendance.
Charles' parents, Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, did not attend the civil service, but they are present at the blessing ceremony, which is being led by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican church.
This is the second marriage for Charles and Mrs. Parker Bowles, who had been lovers for more than three decades.
The blessing service will include an apology by both for committing adultery. Prince Charles' bride will now be known as the Duchess of Cornwall.
Under current British law, she will become the queen if and when Prince Charles succeeds his mother on the British throne.
