Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding was bursting with memorable moments – from the long-awaited revelation of the bride’s dress to the arrivals of Idris Elba and Oprah. But it was one American reverend who really stole the show…
Bishop Michael Curry made an extraordinarily animated and impassioned speech about love and fire and energy, quoting Martin Luther King and focussing not only on the couple’s relationship but also on themes such as war, poverty and hunger.

It’s fair to say that Curry went down an absolute treat on Twitter…
This is brilliant from Bishop Curry – some amazing facial expressions all around! "We're going to sit down, we gotta get y'all married!" Beatrice giggling, Zara open-mouthed in disbelief! #royalwedding

That sermon by Reverend Curry wasn't for the newlyweds.
It was for the world. #RoyalWedding

Bishop Curry is the liveliest priest to ever hit St George's Chapel and the Brits are legit looking frightened #RoyalWedding

The Royal Wedding also had a lot of people on Twitter in floods of tears…
Everyone laughing AND crying at the same time, yeah?

2. Everything else.#royalwedding
