The Royal wedding is almost here – next weekend, Saturday, May 19 – at St George’s Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, where Prince Harry was christened. It is said to have become a “very special place” for the couple in their relationship so far.
Kensington Palace has announced that Bishop Michael Bruce Curry frоm Chicago, Illinois – will give the address at their Royal wedding on May 19.
The Lord Chamberlain’s Office at Buckingham Palace is responsible for organising royal weddings, but Harry and Ms Markle are leading the show. However, under the guidance of Harry’s private secretary, Edward Lane Fox, the Lord Chamberlain’s Office is dealing with the ceremonial aspects of the day.
The service will begin at 12pm. The “core aspects” of the wedding, including the church service, associated music, flowers, decorations and reception, will be paid for by the Royal Family, with Ms Markle’s parents both set to attend.
Invitations have been posted to 600 guests, with a select 200 close friends invited to an after party at Frogmore House, Windsor.
The Royal couple do not have an official list of political leaders on the guest list which means neither Prime Minister Theresa May or the US President Donald Trump will be going. Also, the former US President Barack Obama has also missed out.
Bishop Curry is not personally known to Harry and Meghan, but they felt that given the fact that he is the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church (Anglican Church in the US) as well as being “a wonderful speaker and preacher, it would be highly appropriate for him to be invited to speak,” the insider said.
