Harry, the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and sixth in line to the British throne, and the former TV star will be married on May 19 at Windsor Castle, which has been home to the British royals for almost 1,000 years.

Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry will accompany Justin Welby, the spiritual head of the Anglican Communion, on the big day, which will likely be watched by millions of people around the world.

Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church, became the first African-American presiding bishop when he was elected in 2015.

Welby, however, will preside when the vows are exchanged during the actual service, which will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor.

"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," Curry has stated. "And so we celebrate and pray for them today."


Meghan was reportedly baptized by Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, back in March.

The U.S.-based Episcopal Church is a constituent member of the global Anglican Communion, of which the Church of England is the Mother Church. According to its site, Curry has been active in issues of social justice such as immigration policy and marriage equality.
