The Reverend, who married Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018, looked back on this emotional day.
Their union marked history forever. On May 19, 2018, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were married in St. George’s Chapel in Windsor. Princess Diana’s son and former American actress passed the ring on each other’s fingers in front of members of the British Royal Family and their loved ones.
A very touching ceremony led by the Reverend Michael Curry, who moved the entire congregation with his sermon on the power of love. More than two years after the union of the Sussex couple, Michael Curry looked back on this day, which he will never forget.
On Tuesday, September 22, Michael Curry released a book entitled Love is the way. On the occasion of the publication of his book, the Reverend explained what it was like to be a descendant of slaves and to deliver a sermon before Queen Elizabeth II.
“After I preached the sermon, I remember it was like I could smell the slaves in the room,” Michael Curry told People. He added, “I don’t want to be scary, but it was as if their voices were somehow heard that day. I included one of their songs, ‘There is a Balm in Gilead.
A sign of hope
The 67-year-old religious man added. It was as if their voice, one of their songs, one of their descendants, was there that day. The queen was the most gracious. The fact that all this happened, for me, is a sign of hope.
” That sign of hope, Michael Curry sees it in the person of Meghan Markle, who has African-American ancestry through her mother, Doria Ragland. “A person who is descended from a people who were captured in the slave trade, probably the British slave trade, is brought from the coasts of West Africa to the shores of America.
That one of their descendants was in the presence of the Queen of England,” Michael Curry concluded. Now the couple lives far away from the British monarchy, since they settled in California with their son Archie. In a recent video, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle even loudly and quietly called on the American people to vote… and gently insinuated against Donald Trump.
