THE show-stopping Bishop who captured the world’s attention at the royal wedding has spoken out about the “contagious” sense of love in St George’s chapel during Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding. 

Reverend Bishop Michael Curry captured the world’s attention during his address in which he he passionately quoted Dr Martin Luther King Jr, then switched into full preacher mode, before exclaiming over the power of love... and giving a brief description of the industrial revolution.

Speaking with Archbisop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, he said the couple were “kind and gracious” and thanked him after the ceremony.

“The nice thing....is we were making eye contact throughout,” he told Sky News. “Their eyes and their smiles and their reactions were talking back. It was non-verbal communication throughout the whole thing.”

“You could watch them look at each other...it sent a message of these people are in love, for real.”

When asked about the “unconventional” nature of the service, Archbishop Welby said it was “raw God” and had a sense of “love with a purpose.”

The Chicago-based Bishop said it was “two people in love and who were communicating with each other, sometimes with words and sometimes without.”

“It was contagious in the room, you actually could feel it in the church, people were happy and joyful and thankful....we need some joy in this world,” he said.

During the ceremony, the Bishop spoke about the “redemptive power of love.”

“And when we do that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way.”

He said: “There’s power in love. Don’t underestimate it. Don’t even over-sentimentalise. There is power, power in love.”

Guests looked like they couldn’t decide whether they were totally inspired ... or absolutely baffled. Even Harry and Meghan looked to be stifling their giggles at one point.

As a BBC commentator noted: “He really did have a message to deliver ... and he really did deliver it, with some energy.”

Those watching the whole thing on Twitter also had plenty of thoughts about the unbelievably unorthodox addition to the royal wedding service.
