Bishop Curry's presence at the wedding will bring a touch of home to proceedings for Meghan, who is, of course, American herself.

The elaborate handwritten document, which was issued in March, bears the monarch's signature, and features nods to the couple's heritage, including details from Prince Harry's family arms, and a rose, the national flower of the USA, beside two golden poppies, the state flower of Meghan's native California.

Presiding Bishop Curry, from Chicago Illinois, will travel to Windsor to take part in the Service.

Kensington Palace says the head of the Episcopal Church, the Most Rev. Michael Bruce Curry, will speak at the wedding of Prince Harry and American actress Meghan Markle.

The service will be conducted by the dean of Windsor, the Rt Rev David Conner, and the vows will be administered by the archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. Traditionally, addresses at royal weddings are given by senior clergy from the Church of England.

Markle, who was raised as a Protestant, was baptised in the Anglican Church, as required by royal rules, in a private ceremony in London in March.

"I am delighted that Prince Harry and Meghanmarkle have requested Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their marriage" Welby composed on Twitter.

Following the announcement, Welby tweeted that he was "thrilled" that Curry would be participating in the ceremony, describing him as "a brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ".

The US-based Episcopal Church was born from the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and is a constituent member of the global Anglican Communion, of which the Church of England is the mother church.
