Prayer Book alterations arising from the Accession of King Charles III

As King's Printer, Cambridge publishes the Book of Common Prayer on behalf of the Crown, and we make alterations to the text when the Church of England instructs us to do so. We have received Royal Warrants instructing us to make alterations to reflect the Accession of King Charles, and have updated the text of the Book of Common Prayer. Our newly printed hardback prayer books have the new text.

The Alexa Cambridge Prayer Book skill has also been updated.
