On May 11, the palace revealed that Chicago pastor Bishop Michael Bruce Curry will give an address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials.

The Chicago-born leader of the Episcopal Church, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, has accepted an invitiation to preach at the ceremony next Saturday in Windsor, England, officials said. "And so we celebrate and pray for them today", Bishop Curry said in a statement. Episcopalianism is an American branch of the worldwide Anglican community, to which the Royal Family belong.

They have recently announced who will be giving the address at the wedding. Bishop Michael Curry has been in the role since November 2015.

Whereas Curry will give the sermon, Welby will officiate the ceremony, and the Rev. David Conner, the dean of Windsor, will conduct the service.

Despite these disputes, both Curry and Welby will be at the royal wedding this weekend.

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.

Curry is a socially progressive priest who's sermons are often riddled with commentary on political and social justice issues. The bishop says his father made a decision to become a part of the church after he and his mother had been allowed to drink from the same chalice being passed among white parishioners in racially segregated Ohio.

He parlayed that into a best-selling book, Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus.

He went on to say that the followers of Jesus need those same characteristics.
