The new Duke and Duchess of Sussex

The Bishop of Chichester, Dr Martin Warner, issued this statement this morning on hearing the news from The Palace.

"The diocese of Chichester is delighted that Her Majesty the Queen has given the title of Duke and Duchess of Sussex to Prince Harry and Meghan, his new wife.

"Their unself-conscious and caring attention for those who are so often overlooked, veterans, young people from every walk of life, and those who live with mental illness, will be a great example and encouragement to us.

"We assure them of our very best wishes for the future and that they will have a special place in our hearts, here in Sussex."
