It's very difficult to read and all I can make out is it:

"Due to unforeseen events and counsel, I have to use.....down my records....I have granted an annulment for his......marriage to Elia Martell ....presided over his marriage to Lyanna Stark in Dorne. They?? forbid me to tell anyone of the ceremony, so I shall not. "

Anyone able to fill in the blanks?

Unforeseen events?

I've looked but can't decipher any more than you have. I think you did well to read what you have done.

I looked too but you've done a great job of making out the words you have. I cannot add anything more.

I'm intrigued by the "unforeseen events and counsel" part. There's a tendency to frown on what Rhaegar and Lyanna did but in fairness we don't have the whole story. Perhaps there's more to discover even if it will only be addressed in the books.

It's "from setting down my records".
Could it be "unforeseen events and travel" rather than "counsel"? Could refer to him going to Dorne.

Yes you're right, it is "setting down my records"

I'm not sure, it looks like an s in counsel rather than a v in travel.

Due to unforeseen events and counsel, I have been prevented from setting down my records for [....] today.
I have granted an annulment to Prince Rhaegar for his [....] marriage to Elia Martell and presided over his marriage to Lyanna Stark in Dorne. He forbid me to tell anyone of the ceremony, so I shall not.

Just a couple of words to decipher.

Why would he be prevented from setting down his records for the day?

Surely that's obvious?
Because Rhaegar told him not to tell anyone.
He noted it in his personal diary, but he made no official record.

Thank you. Intriguing!
