Bishop Curry has been making his media rounds after preaching a memorable message on the “Power of Love” at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding on Saturday.
On Tuesday’s Good Morning America, the Bishop discussed the moment he was asked to preach at the wedding, and the significance of him, a Black clergyman preaching at St. George’s Chapel for a royal wedding.
Curry, who is the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, shared with co-host, Robin Roberts that he thought his invite to preach at the royal wedding was an April Fool’s joke.
“It was the decision of the couple, but they were in consultation both with the Archbishop of Canterbury and with the Dean of St. George’s and I’m sure others as well,” he recounted to Good Morning America, adding, “I got a phone call, and I didn’t believe it, because a member of my staff called and said, ‘They’d like you to preach at the royal wedding,’ and I said, ‘Get out of here it’s April Fools. You’ve got to be kidding me.’ And it was actually true.”
Robin then got serious with the Bishop about the historical meaning of #1 him preaching at the royal wedding, and #2 Meghan marrying into the royal family.
