United States bishop to give address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

Prince Harry and Ms Markle have not yet met the bishop and have no previous relationship with him, but choose him to deliver their address after discussions with Archbishop Welby.

"I'm thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding", Welby wrote on Twitter.

Bishop Curry has denounced a "crisis of moral and political leadership" in the United States under president Trump.

Their choice of Curry, 65, is likely to transform the tone of the church ceremony.

Curry served as a priest at St. Stephens Episcopal Church on Highland Avenue in Winston-Salem from 1978 to 1982 and became bishop of North Carolina in 2000.

However, such an important role... Approximately 600 guests have been invited, while millions will watch from around the world. Kensington Palace revealed in early May that the couple chose the Ascot Landau carriage, which will be pulled by a pair of horses named Storm and Tyrone (who are father and son!) on the big day.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will officiate as the couple exchange their marriage vows.

Missing New York City teacher found dead in Shandaken
Police sources say he was semiconscious and experiencing hypothermia when officers found him but expired by now medics arrived. Ketigh Johnson, 46, was last seen Saturday afternoon outside PS 29 in College Point, Queens where he is a music teacher.

Having an American pastor at a royal wedding is a break from tradition.

Curry, who studied at Yale Divinity School, will join the dean of Windsor, the Rt.

Sermons are usually given by senior Church of England clergy.

Bishop Curry said: 'The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God, and is the key to life and happiness.

Bishop Curry publicly criticised Trump as recently as last week, in a letter which was signed by a further 22 other Christian leaders. "And so we celebrate and pray for them today".

According to its website, Presiding Bishop Curry has been active in issues of social justice including immigration policy and marriage equality. He also hit the headlines in 2012 for a sermon called "We need some insane Christians" in which he discussed the notion that Jesus was "crazy" and that his followers need to be too.

He moved onto say that the followers of Jesus want those very same traits.
