Royal wedding 2018: Meghan and Harry ask US Bishop Curry to preach | Life | Life & Style

The royal wedding of Meghan Markle, 36 and Prince Harry, 33, will take place in just one week on May 19.

Taking place at Windsor Castle, the pair will wed before travelling through Windsor in a royal carriage to greet well wishers.

Over 600 guests have been invited with the procession to start at approximately 1pm.

The pair have released a number of details about the wedding, whilst the dress is still kept under wraps despite strong rumours.

They have recently announced who will be giving the address at the wedding.

It has been announced that US Bishop, Michael Bruce Curry, will be part of the team who officiate the couple.

He is the 27th Presiding Bishop and is from Chicago, Illinois.

Kensington Palace tweeted: “Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have asked that The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, give the address at their wedding.

“Presiding Bishop Curry 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

He is active in social issues including immigration and marriage equality.

The Archbishop of Canterbury tweeted his happiness over the announcement.

He wrote: “I’m thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding.

“@PB_Curry is a brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.”

Bishop Curry is yet to comment on the news on Twitter.

Archbishop Welby, also part of the ceremony, was who baptised Meghan Markle into the church.

What do we know about the royal wedding so far?

The cake is to be made by a London based baker Claire Ptak, who was previously interviewed by Meghan on her now-closed lifestyle blog The Tig.

It will be an elderflower and lemon cake which many high-street retailers have since replicated.

The flowers that Meghan has for her bouquet could include peonies.

Before her Instagram account was deleted, she stated that the flower made her “endlessly happy”.
