BALTIMORE (WJZ)– A bishop who was once a rector at a West Baltimore church will be preaching during the royal wedding in a few days’ time.

The Episcopal Church announced Bishop Michael Curry will preach at the upcoming royal wedding of Prince Harry and American Meghan Markle.

Curry is the first African-American Presiding Bishop of the National Episcopal Church, but before that he lead congregations like St. James’ Episcopal Church in West Baltimore.

“I was excited. I had to double take to look at it, my eyes got watery,” says Dominique Sye, a member of the church.
