Hadn't thought of this
But it seems Rome may always win out in its fights with the Anglican Church. CNN.com points out the irony: "When King Henry VIII wanted to divorce his wife and marry his pregnant lover, he denounced the pope and, in a flagrant act of rebellion against distant Rome, created the Church of England.
Now, almost 500 years later, heir to the throne Prince Charles has postponed his wedding -- to a divorcee at that -- to go to Rome to pay his respects at the funeral of Pope John Paul."

Those silly British Royals think they have control over who and when they marry? Hah.
