From Defender of THE Faith to Defender of Faith

When Prince Charles assumes the throne, he's planning a little change. According to this report from the Telegraph,
The move would mean the monarch, as Supreme Governor of the Church of England, would no longer be known as Defender of the Faith for the first time since the reign of Henry VIII.

The Prince caused controversy within the Anglican church when he floated the idea several years ago of becoming Defender of the Faiths in an attempt to embrace the other religions in Britain.

In a compromise he has now opted for Defender of Faith which he hopes will unite the different strands of society, and their beliefs, at his Coronation.
Of course, most people think that any of these titles are a joke. But with Muslim birthrates three times higher than non-Muslim birthrates, he may do well to take up the mantel of Defender of Islam.
