What a crap thing to say - that a marriage will only last seven years. I don't care who he is - that he is a bishop is irrelevant to me - but why make hurtful comments?
A Church of England bishop has apologised for saying he believes Prince William and Kate Middleton's marriage would only last for seven years. Skip related content
The Rt Rev Pete Broadbent, Bishop of Willesden, admitted his comments, posted on Facebook, were "deeply offensive".
He said he has passed on his "sincere regrets" to the Prince of Wales and the newly-engaged couple for any "distress" he has caused.
The offending comments contained reference to the Royal Family as "philanderers".
He also described the media furore surrounding the wedding as "nauseating tosh", likening the Prince and his fiancee to "shallow celebrities".
On the day of the royal wedding announcement the bishop also made derogatory comments on Twitter.
His post read: "Need to work out what date in the spring or summer I should be booking my republican day trip to France..."
But in the statement offering his apology, he said: "I recognise that the tone of my language and the content of what I said were deeply offensive, and I apologise unreservedly for the hurt caused.
"It was unwise of me to engage in a debate with others on a semi-public internet forum and to express myself in such language.
I wish Prince William and Kate Middleton a happy and lifelong marriage, and will hold them in my prayers."
