The royal wedding is fast approaching, and more and more details are revealed! Recently, Meghan Markle has been baptized as an Anglican.
Actually, she didn’t have to convert to marry her beau. But out of respect to Queen Elizabeth II and her husband-to-be, the American beauty decided to have a secret ceremony.
It was administered by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, who will also conduct a royal wedding ceremony. But there will also be another bishop to deliver a sermon at the royal nuptials. And this choice is rather interesting.
Kensington Palace revealed that The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry from Illinois will take part in the service.
What do we know about him?

Curry is the head of the Episcopal Church. He is famous for his funny and often theatrical sermons that focus on social justice.
The bishop is the first to allow gay marriages in religious ceremonies in North Carolina. Archbishop Welby doesn’t approve of such a decision, as it may “cause distress”.

But despite their differences over the issue of same-sex marriages, Welby is thrilled to meet Curry and listen to his address.
