Prince Henry “Harry” of Wales and former U.S. actress Meghan Markle invited Bishop Michael Curry, the first African American to preside over the Episcopal Church and who defends same-sex marriage, to deliver a sermon at their wedding on Saturday.
“Presiding Bishop Curry, from Chicago Illinois, will travel to Windsor to take part in the Service,” Kensington Palace announced Saturday. “He will join The Dean of Windsor, The Rt. Revd. David Conner, who will conduct the Service. The Most Revd. and Rt. Hon. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, will officiate as the couple make their marriage vows.”
The royal statement quoted Curry as saying, “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. And so we celebrate and pray for them today.”
After the Episcopal Church voted to allow gay marriage in 2015, Archbishop Welby said the decision “will cause distress for some and have ramifications for the Anglican Communion as a whole, as well as for its ecumenical and interfaith resolutions.” In January 2016, the Anglican Communion decided to suspend the denomination for three years.
