  • Catherine Cooke and her daughter Julie Ann Coll from Londonderry Northern Ireland received an invitation to the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle on May 19

Kensington Palace introduced Saturday in a tweet that the Most Rev. Michael Curry, the pinnacle of the Episcopal Church, can be a part of the nuptials at Windsor Fort.

Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, has been chosen to give the address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. "And so we celebrate and pray for them today", Bishop Curry said in a statement.

Curry, who was born in Chicago, was elected as the first African-American leader of the Episcopal Church in 2015.

In addition, we are told that Curry's father was the Reverend Kenneth B. Curry, former Rector of St. Philip's Church in Buffalo.

Taking place at Windsor Castle, the pair will Wednesday before travelling through Windsor in a royal carriage to greet well wishers. One particular participant is especially interesting after knowing the royal couple and the mission they've announced for after they're married.

"Now that Bishop Curry is going to be there, I will be waking up on time to catch his comments", Smith said.

He described him as a "stunning preacher" and said he was "thrilled" that Prince Harry and Meghan had asked the bishop to be part of their happy day.

Curry's invitation to give an address at the wedding is a break from tradition.

Welby has baptized Markle ahead of her marriage to Harry, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, who is the supreme governor of the Church of England.

Bishop Curry's presence at the wedding will bring a touch of home to proceedings for Meghan, who is, of course, American herself. The sermon went viral and was later turned into a book, Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus.
