The Newest American Addition to the Royal Wedding

Curry served as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina from 2000-15.

One royal fan tweeted: "Having an American clergyman participate is great news". A year and a half later, the couple announced their engagement and picked May 19 as the royal wedding date. Have you heard of it?

Kensington Palace confirmed yesterday, on Twitter, that "Prince Harry and Ms".

I see! He must be pleased.

The couple have invited a senior bishop from the United States to give an address at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. "And so we celebrate and pray for them today", Bishop Curry said in a statement.

Why did they choose him? "I've been at a number of services where he's preached and it is a wonderful, uplifting, remarkable experience", Barrington said.

To do so, though, the rookie needs help, and he finds it in his colleague Flip Zimmerman ( Adam Driver ), who is Jewish. It was among the most highly anticipated titles at Cannes this year and immediate reaction was positive.

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".

While Curry will give the sermon, Welby will officiate the ceremony, and the Rev. David Conner, the dean of Windsor, will conduct the service. Saint James congregant Hope Smith was interested in the Royal Wedding before, but says now it will be a must-see with the Bishop Curry speaking.

Ms Markle was baptised by the Most Rev Justin Welby ahead of her wedding to the prince, whose grandmother, the Queen, is head of the Anglican Church.

Curry spent time at school in Buffalo, New York, before heading to Hobart College in Geneva, New York in 1975.

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.

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.
