The day might be Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day – but it’s the Most Reverend Michael Curry who seems to have been one of the highlights of the wedding service and may truly have stolen the show.Michael Curry who was described by the Archbishop of Canterbury as a “stunning preacher” ahead of the service, more than lived up to his billing with the Royal Wedding address.Michael Curry was born in Chicago on March 13, 1953, and went to school in Buffalo, in the state of New York. He revealed in his autobiography that both his mother and father were descended from slaves and sharecroppers. The 65-year-old was ordained as a deacon in June, 1978, and as a priest six months later.Curry held posts in North Carolina, Ohio and Maryland before being consecrated as the 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina in 2000. In 2015, he became the first black presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church, which is Anglican like the Church of England. The Episcopal Church – based in New York – is one of just two Anglican churches which allows gay marriage in church, and Curry drew some controversy by backing the move.As well as equal marriage, during his career the bishop has been outspoken on issues of social justice and immigration policy. Harry and Meghan’s wedding ceremony was being presided over by the Dean of Windsor and the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Curry delivered the barnstorming address.He opened his speech with the words of Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King Jr, who said: “We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. “And when we do that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way.”The bishop then added: “There’s power in love. Don’t underestimate it. Don’t even over-sentimentalise. There is power, power in love.” Prince William was seen smirking in front of the Queen and Prince Philip at St George’s Chapel in Windsor as Curry delivered his rousing message. Harry and Meghan saw the funny side and David Beckham was snapped grinning from ear to ear as the address went down a storm.Photo Credit: Getty
