The preacher who gave the address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding is an advocate of same-sex marriage and transgender rights.
In 2015, Michael Curry became the first black bishop in the Episcopal Church, which is one of just two Anglican churches that allows same-sex marriage in church, and Curry drew controversy for backing the move.
As well as supporting same-sex marriage, Curry has also been outspoken on issues of social justice and immigration policy.
On Twitter, the Archbishop of Canterbury has described Curry as:
A brilliant pastor, a stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.

In a powerful and emotive address at Harry and Meghan's wedding, the pastor evangelised the redemptive power of love:
There’s power in love. Love can help and heal when nothing else can. There’s power in love to lift up and liberate when nothing else will.
He also quoted Martin Luther King Jr in his address:
We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love and when we do that we will make of this old world a new world.
