Bishop Michael Curry, who preached the sermon during Prince Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle last May 19, says he could tell the royal couple genuinely love each other based on the Bible verse they picked for their wedding. At least two billion people around the world heard the preacher explain the verses from Song of Solomon and relate them to the love that the prince and his bride have for each other.
Curry sat with the host of "The View" to detail what went on at the royal wedding from his perspective. He confirmed that it was Prince Harry and Markle who personally selected Song of Solomon 8:6-7.
"You can tell, these two people actually love each other," Curry told the female hosts and described the verse as love poetry. "Literally, in the passage that they selected, it was when the woman in the poetry actually realizes that their love that they're experiencing is part of a greater love," Curry said.
The head of the U.S. Episcopal Church also revealed that he gave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a manuscript of his sermon a week before the royal wedding as Curry wanted the royals to be aware of the basic outline before the big day but he admits he slightly deviated from the format.
Speaking on another show with the hosts of "Good Morning, America," Curry once again reiterated that he felt the love between Prince Harry and Markle. He marveled that it was the kind of love that brought "different worlds together" as the couple come from different family backgrounds, race, nationality, religion and traditions.
Royal watchers said that Curry became the breakout star of the wedding for his passionate sermon on love. Not everyone, however, appreciated his message or his presence in the Anglican Church.
