Justin Welby: Bishops Michael's wedding sermon 'blew the place open'

The Archbishop of Canterbury has described the US bishop's wedding sermon for the royal wedding on Saturday as so powerful that it "blew the place open".

Speaking to Sky News, as he stood next to Most Rev Michael Curry, Justin Welby said: "The use of language to communicate the good news of Jesus Christ just blew the place open."

Both clergymen acknowledged that the preaching style hadn't been seen on the grounds of Windsor castle or at a Royal wedding.


Explaining why he chose to deliver an emotional sermon, Bishop Michael, primate of the Episcopal Church in the US (TEC) said: "Well it really was, to be honest, the good news of Jesus Christ."


Meanwhile, newlyweds Harry and Meghan begin their first day as a married couple on Sunday after tying the knot during the emotional wedding ceremony bishop Michael described as "tear-jerking and really beautiful".

After a day that saw the couple seal their union with a kiss, process through Windsor in a carriage and experience a moving wedding reception speech in their honour from the Prince of Wales, they are expected to travel home to take up royal duties.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will carry out their first public engagement as a married couple at Prince Charles' birthday celebration on Tuesday.

However, it's still not been revealed where the newlyweds will be going on their honeymoon or when it will be.
