Bishop Michael Curry to Deliver Sermon on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle Royal Wedding
By M. Grace, May 16, 2018 19:05 PM
Royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle asked the leader of the Episcopal Church in America, Most Rev. Michael Curry to deliver the sermon on their wedding on May 19. Curry agreed to do it and the event will be taking place at St. George's Chapel in the Windsor Castle.
The participation of the Chicago-born bishop reportedly breaks the royal customs as only senior clergy members of the Church of England traditionally deliver the sermons during special events. The Episcopal Church, however, is being recognized as part of the United States Anglican Communion and its head Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who also leads the Church of England, welcomed Curry's addition with open arms.
"I'm thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding," Welby stated in a tweet. "[Curry] is a brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ."
While Curry delivers the sermon, Welby will still be the one officiating the royal wedding. The dean of Windsor Rev. David Corner will also be part during the church service.
Meanwhile, the Church of England recently released a prayer for the royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding.
"Send your blessing upon Harry and Meghan, and all who are joined in marriage, that, rejoicing in your will and continuing under your protection," part of the prayer read.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, an actress, began dating in July 2016 and announced their engagement after a hear and a half.
