Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ask USA bishop to deliver wedding address

With the royal wedding only a week away, the world's media have been reporting the details with vigour.

According to The Telegraph, the Bishop, who is originally from Chicago, will be the first African-American to have the honor of delivering the special address at a royal wedding ceremony.

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

The archbishop of Canterbury said on Twitter: 'I'm thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding.

"I had another option that was a lot more simple, but I felt it was an insult to the people who sat there and hand beaded that entire thing".

Many Winston-Salem residents will remember Curry, who calls himself "CEO" or "Chief Evangelism Officer" and got his roots in the city before eventually becoming the 27th presiding bishop of the U.S. Episcopal Church in 2015. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by auto to Windsor Castle.

Buckingham Palace has released an image of the handwritten document in which Queen Elizabeth II gives her consent for Prince Harry to marry Meghan Markle.

I think you have to go to the extreme when you're gifting both for a man and a woman, because both people benefit from the gift. "For (Curry) to reach the status of presiding bishop is a test to his leadership".

Curry, 65, presided over Green's daughter Diane's confirmation in Alabama and his son David's confirmation in Winston-Salem.

He is due to give a speech at the ceremony in St George's Chapel in Windsor next Saturday - and comes after it was revealed the U.S. president would not be invited to the event.

We hope her parents make the most of the Palace stay as we imagine they'll be relocating to Windsor late next week, with Markle confirmed to arrive at her wedding eve accommodation on Friday May 18.

Welby will preside over the exchange of vows, while the service itself will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor.
