Prince’s Easter verse


THE Prince of Wales, above, has recorded verse by acclaimed poet and Catholic priest Gerard Manley Hopkins to show support for Christians at Easter, Clarence House has said.

Charles has narrated the Hopkins poem God’s Grandeur, which will be played during a virtual service tomorrow at Stonyhurst College, a Catholic boarding school in Lancashire where the Victorian cleric taught. The poem begins with the lines: “The world is charged with the grandeur of God.”
