Bishop Curry thinks Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding will make the world "a little bit better".

The Most Reverend Michael Bruce Curry - who gave a sermon at the nuptials on Saturday May 19 - believes the couple's marriage has "brought us together across lines" of race, ethnicity and politics.


He said: "Their love for each other brought us together even if it was just for a few moments. It brought us together across lines of nationality, across lines of race and ethnicity, across politics... I mean, you think about it. It never ends. 

Their love helped to reorient how we relate to each other, even if it was just for a moment. I got a feeling, like in the movie, 'The Color Purple', when they were singing the song, 'God Is Trying to Tell You Something?' I got a feeling that God was trying to tell us something - that this love could help us reshape the world and make it a little bit better."

And the 65-year-old bishop loved their unique scripture selection.

He added to Entertainment Tonight: "We met at the wedding, which was actually wonderful. I met them when you all met them ... but I have to admit, I mean, obviously we all read about them and that kind of thing, but they selected the passage of scripture. I ended up preaching on that passage that was their decision, which I think was a remarkable decision, it really was.

"I've been ordained since 1971, a long time. I've done many weddings. I've never preached a wedding, sermon or homily on that text ever before ... a couple may have selected it before, but I don't remember off the top of my head. The selection of that text was really significant because that text created the sermon."
