Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip

A church leader in the UK has revealed, Prince Philip encouraged the Queen to talk more about her Christian faith in her Christmas broadcasts.

Rev. Professor Ian Bradley told Premier Christian News, Prince Philip really encouraged the Queen to talk about her own faith in the broadcasts.

Since the year 2000 the Queen has spoken very movingly about her own Christian faith.

The Duke explained that prior to this, the presentation was more like a travelogue of where the family had been.
Mr Bradley who was a visiting preacher for the Queen and Duke, described Prince Philip as having a wonderful knowledge of the Bible and a deep interest in theology.

He says the Duke would make many notes during sermons and in-depth discussions were held over a meal.

Former archbishop of York John Sentamu has also said the marriage of the couple was strong because they were deeply rooted in Christ.
