US Anglican leader to give address at British royal wedding

US Anglican leader to give address at British royal wedding

The elaborate handwritten document, which was issued in March, bears the monarch's signature, and features nods to the couple's heritage, including details from Prince Harry's family arms, and a rose, the national flower of the USA, beside two golden poppies, the state flower of Meghan's native California.

According to Kensington Palace, the duo have asked The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry, the 27 Presiding Bishop and Primate of The Episcopal Church, to attend their wedding and give an address.

The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry said: "The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God, and is the key to life and happiness".

Last month, we shared with you the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle promised support of LGBTQ issues after they'd tied the knot.

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby will officiate as the couple exchange their marriage vows.

Curry became the Episcopal Church's first African-American leader when he was elected in 2015.

The Episcopal Church is largely known as the United States branch of the Anglican Communion, which includes the Church of England.

But there was still a moment to remember late on as Carrick's 464th United appearance came to a close, receiving a standing ovation as he was replaced by Paul Pogba on a day that belonged to one of the club's most distinguished servants.

It caused a rift within the Communion in 2003 when it ordained the openly gay Gene Robinson as a bishop.

Meghan Markle was baptised by Archbishop Welby ahead of her wedding to Harry, whose grandmother, the Queen, is head of the Anglican Church.

Curry, installed as leader of the USA -based member of the Anglican Communion on November 1, 2015, is socially progressive and his sermons often focus on social justice; they are also often amusing and highly theatrical.

Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, will accompany the bride in the auto to Windsor Castle on the morning of the wedding, while her father, Thomas Markle, will walk her down the aisle.

Nonetheless, Markle attended a private Roman Catholic girls' school in Los Angeles.

Catholics are excluded from succession to the throne, and the sovereign must be in communion with the Church of England, swear to preserve it and promise to uphold the Protestant succession.
