Archbishop of york recalls ‘healing’ queen’s bentley

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Archbishop of York recalls ‘healing’ Queen’s Bentley” – below is their description.

The Archbishop of York has revealed how he once “healed” the late Queen’s Bentley motorcar after it refused to start during his visit to the Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

Speaking in the Lords, the Most Rev Stephen Cottrell recounted how the monarch’s vehicle eventually fired up after he performed “a large sign of the cross” over it.

“I see the Queen out the corner of my eye looking rather stony faced at this point and I think perhaps I’ve over-stepped the mark. Anyway, the driver tries the car again and – praise the Lord – the car started.”
