If the sheer magnitude of the occasion, the unpredictability of the page boys and the vague possibility an uninvited Markle might have smashed through a stained-glass window weren’t enough to keep the congregation sharp in St George’s Chapel, one moment was sure to wake royal wedding guests up: The sermon. After opening remarks by the Dean of Windsor, David Conner, and before the marriage vows, officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the assembled guests – plus many millions watching on television around the world – heard a sermon delivered by American preacher Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church. It was quite a gear change. Curry, 65, became the first African-American to lead the Episcopal Church in 2015, and is renowned for his highly entertaining preaching style. His rambling addresses from the pulpit are by turns gloriously melodramatic, sharply political and filled with self-deprecating humour. Welby and Conner may wish to up their game; Curry promises to steal the show. Royal wedding | Read more Prince Harry and Meghan Markleare said to have discussed whom to select for the sermon with Welby, who knows Curry well. The Chicagoan bishop hadn’t personally met Harry or Meghan, but it was said they hoped to be introduced prior to the service. A Kensington Palace statement described him as “an appropriate figure” to speak at the Royal wedding. “The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God and is the key to life and happiness. And so we celebrate and pray for them today,” Curry said. Welby, who baptised Ms Markle into the Church of England in March, underlined his admiration for the American preacher with a tweet. “I&#39;m thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding. [He] is a brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ,” he wrote. Curry’s announcement was a surprise to some, given he is not a family friend of the royals. At their wedding in 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had Richard Chartres, the former Bishop of London and an old university friend of the Prince of Wales, deliver the sermon. Chartres nudged the congregation awake that day with a fantastic seven-minute speech that trod the line between tradition and modernity. His colourful opening quote from St Catherine of Siena – ‘Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire’ – became one of the more memorable from the day. Curry, a descendant of slaves, was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1953, before moving to Buffalo, New York, as a child. He has said his mother switched from the Baptist church to Episcopalianism after she read CS Lewis’s Mere Christianity, which prompted his father, the late Reverend Kenneth Curry, who came from a line of Baptist preachers, to do the same. Reverend Kenneth Curry was a civil rights activist who helped bring an end to racial segregation in schools in Buffalo. Following his father into the church, Curry became ordained in 1978 and moved to North Carolina, where he served at St Stephen’s Episcopal Church, before stints in parishes in Ohio and Baltimore. He was elected 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina in 2000, later becoming one of the first bishops to allow same-sex marriages to be performed in churches there. Curry is known for his impassioned sermons Credit: Getty After 15 years in North Carolina, Curry was elected to lead the entire Episcopal Church in 2015 with an overwhelming majority. Founded in 1789 and with almost two million baptised members (only a fraction of whom are black), it is one of the oldest Anglican churches in America. During the American Revolution, the second presiding bishop, Samuel Seabury, was a famous rival of Alexander Hamilton, and makes a fleeting appearance in Hamilton: An American Musical. “My grandmother couldn’t imagine Barack Obama in the White House, and I know she couldn’t imagine her grandson as presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church,” Curry once said of his historic election. Curry, who has two grown-up daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth, with his wife Sharon, has previously compared the LGBT and black civil rights movements, and is a staunch advocate of same-sex marriage. Royal wedding day pictures: Best photos from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle&#39;s ceremony and reception In 2015, when the Episcopal Church voted to allow gay couples to marry in religious ceremonies, Welby was temporarily furious at the rift such a progressive move could create. He said that the decision of Curry’s church would &quot;cause distress for some and have ramifications for the Anglican communion as a whole, as well as for its ecumenical and interfaith resolutions,” and the Episcopal Church was subsequently suspended from key voting positions in the Anglican Communion for three years. It rejoins next year. Curry, never one to back down easily, stood his ground. “I stand before you as a descendant of African slaves, stolen from their native land, enslaved in a bitter bondage, and then even after emancipation, segregated and excluded in church and society,” he said. “And this conjures that up again, and brings pain.” Welby and Curry have remained firm friends, however. Curry is a supporter of Thy Kingdom Come, a global prayer movement started in 2016 by Welby and Dr John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, and the two men are thought to agree on many issues – not least the need to modernise the Anglican church and its image.

We are praying God’s blessing on the couple and all involved. pic.twitter.com/j48oHn5LmN— Archbishop of Canterbury (@JustinWelby) May 18, 2018 A fanatical music fan, follower of the Buffalo Bills American football team and avid reader, Curry’s sermons are widely admired, despite frequently containing strong political undertones. As well as a vocal advocate of gay marriage, he has made veiled (and not-so-veiled) attacks on the Trump administration. “Very often our very faith has been hi-jacked by cultural voices more concerned about self-serving agenda and not concerned about self-sacrificial service for others. Where is the Christianity worried about immigrants? Where is the Christianity speaking up for those young dreamers? Where is the Christianity speaking up for children in our society and for the poor?” he preached earlier this year. Along with 22 other Christian leaders, he plans to join a march on the White House to “reclaim Jesus” just days after the royal wedding. Luckily the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth has made a Michael Curry Sermon Bingo card for the big day pic.twitter.com/FTFzZmtRe2— Breaking Butter (@breakingbutter) May 18, 2018 With his deep baritone voice and sing-song cadence, Curry’s inspirational (albeit occasionally very long) sermons tend to capture any audience’s attention, including the thousands who watch him on YouTube. According to his followers, wherever he preaches, he uses jokes, African-American spirituals, poetry and masterful storytelling to captivate the congregation. American fans on Twitter have even produced a ‘Michael Curry bingo’ card for viewers to play along with. “If you’re breathing, God’s calling!”, “Crazy Christians”, and simply the word “GO!” are among the phrases to look out for, apparently. Timings may be tight tomorrow, but don’t be surprised if Curry is allowed to steal an extra minute if he’s in full flow. Americans are confident he can bring down the house, or at the very least shine brightly in a day full of unexpected tweaks on tradition. “The man is 100% joy,&quot; said one Episcopalean commentator this week. &quot;Don’t be surprised if everyone at St. George’s Chapel is singing &#39;There is a balm in Gilead&#39; next Saturday.&quot; Here&#39;s hoping.

Anyone hearing Gareth Southgate speak with such purpose for almost two hours on Thursday at Wembley could be reassured – the reactions from Joe Hart and Jack Wilshere to their England omission would never dent his optimism. Southgate’s focus had moved from assessing players whose recent performances have not matched their past promise to what might be possible among a young group from which he thinks world-class performers can emerge. He was asked whether a player like Dele Alli might announce themselves to the wider world. Rather than flinch at creating excessive expectation, he reeled off another six players with that sort of potential. He did not regard that list as exhaustive and pointed out Alli’s statistics were in advance of Steven Gerrard at the same age. “There are so many possible players in this group that it could be that moment,” he said. “You perform in a World Cup and that announces you to the world. That’s the beauty of playing in an England shirt. You have the chance to make history in games that really matter and that people will remember forever. “From [John] Stones and [Harry] Maguire, to Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] to Dele [Alli] to Raheem [Sterling]. Harry [Kane], [Marcus] Rash[ford]. There are any number that could announce themselves. I was involved in 1998 and [David] Beckham and [Michael] Owen didn’t start the first game. They were both left out. By the end of it, they were the two headline-grabbers.” What has been so refreshing about Southgate is how reputations have had such little influence on his decisions. It is less than two years since Sam Allardyce was talking about Wayne Rooney playing wherever he wanted in an England shirt. Before that we had the backroom involvements of Beckham and Gary Neville under Fabio Capello and Roy Hodgson. England Formation Builder Southgate looked baffled when it was put to him on that he might take another England “legend” – a Lampard, Gerrard or Ferdinand – to work with him and Steve Holland, his assistant. “Steve Holland is a legend,” he said, of the ex-Chelsea assistant manager. “He has won the Champions League. He has won the Europa League. He has won the Premier League. He has won the FA Cup. I think he has won the League Cup as well. He is the most experienced English coach in the country. He has been in the biggest matches possible and we have complete trust in each other. That is a critical relationship. Terry Venables had that with Don Howe, who also operated at the highest level and would challenge Terry.” Their collective diligence is clear. Guest speakers to the group have included John Barnes, Eddie Jones and Alan Shearer. The squad have also met leading figures from American football and have trained with the Marines. Similar bonding exercises and invitations to people from inside and outside of sport will be made over the next month. England squad: A bold selection with a clear sense of direction “It brings energy – we have to stimulate people,” explained Southgate. While conscious the players do not want to hear him droning on about personal experiences, he knows it can help some decisions. He decided against naming a big provisional squad. “My experience was, this way is cleaner,” he said, presumably remembering when Glenn Hoddle had to tell Paul Gascoigne he would not make the 1998 World Cup. In explaining every squad selection and the omissions of big names, he stated with confidence they had not been among the best performers in their positions. When you looked back at their seasons, it was difficult to disagree. One big boost has been the involvement of a healthy number of English players with the top four clubs. Manchester City and Liverpool’s achievements will surely make their domestic players discard any inferiority complex. Sterling, for example, has been integral to City’s Premier League dominance and Southgate says that he had never seen him score more often than during recent training with England. World Cup predictor The Champions League final could also impact on England’s hopes. Southgate has still not decided who his captain will be and can sense genuine leadership in Jordan Henderson’s Liverpool performance. Of the boost a Liverpool victory would bring to England, Southgate said: “I think it is big. You want them to experience winning things because then they know what it has taken, the commitment that is needed and the mindset that is needed and that hurdles can be overcome. When I took the Under-21s, I believed young English players could play in a certain style. What was stopping them from being as good as players around the world? Manchester City have a core of four English players most weeks. Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham the same.” It is now less than a month until England begin their campaign in Volgograd against Tunisia. So does Southgate know his starting team? Yes,” he said. “There is opportunity for people to play their way into that... but we know who we would select tomorrow.”

If the sheer magnitude of the occasion, the unpredictability of the page boys and the vague possibility an uninvited Markle might have smashed through a stained-glass window weren’t enough to keep the congregation sharp in St George’s Chapel today, one moment was sure to wake royal wedding guests up: the sermon. After opening remarks by the Dean of Windsor, David Conner, and before the marriage vows, officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, the assembled guests – plus many millions watching on television around the world – heard a sermon delivered by American preacher Michael Bruce Curry, the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal Church. It was quite a gear change. Curry, 65, became the first African-American to lead the Episcopal Church in 2015, and is renowned for his highly entertaining preaching style. His rambling addresses from the pulpit are by turns gloriously melodramatic, sharply political and filled with self-deprecating humour. Welby and Conner may wish to up their game; Curry promises to steal the show. Royal wedding | Read more Prince Harry and Meghan Markleare said to have discussed whom to select for the sermon with Welby, who knows Curry well. The Chicagoan bishop hadn’t personally met Harry or Meghan, but it was said they hoped to be introduced prior to the service. A Kensington Palace statement described him as “an appropriate figure” to speak at the Royal wedding. “The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle together has its source and origin in God and is the key to life and happiness. And so we celebrate and pray for them today,” Curry said. Welby, who baptised Ms Markle into the Church of England in March, underlined his admiration for the American preacher with a tweet. “I&#39;m thrilled that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have asked Bishop Michael Curry to preach at their wedding. [He] is a brilliant pastor, stunning preacher and someone with a great gift for sharing the good news of Jesus Christ,” he wrote. Curry’s announcement was a surprise to some, given he is not a family friend of the royals. At their wedding in 2011, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had Richard Chartres, the former Bishop of London and an old university friend of the Prince of Wales, deliver the sermon. Chartres nudged the congregation awake that day with a fantastic seven-minute speech that trod the line between tradition and modernity. His colourful opening quote from St Catherine of Siena – ‘Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire’ – became one of the more memorable from the day. Curry, a descendant of slaves, was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1953, before moving to Buffalo, New York, as a child. He has said his mother switched from the Baptist church to Episcopalianism after she read CS Lewis’s Mere Christianity, which prompted his father, the late Reverend Kenneth Curry, who came from a line of Baptist preachers, to do the same. Reverend Kenneth Curry was a civil rights activist who helped bring an end to racial segregation in schools in Buffalo. Following his father into the church, Curry became ordained in 1978 and moved to North Carolina, where he served at St Stephen’s Episcopal Church, before stints in parishes in Ohio and Baltimore. He was elected 11th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina in 2000, later becoming one of the first bishops to allow same-sex marriages to be performed in churches there. Curry is known for his impassioned sermons Credit: Getty After 15 years in North Carolina, Curry was elected to lead the entire Episcopal Church in 2015 with an overwhelming majority. Founded in 1789 and with almost two million baptised members (only a fraction of whom are black), it is one of the oldest Anglican churches in America. During the American Revolution, the second presiding bishop, Samuel Seabury, was a famous rival of Alexander Hamilton, and makes a fleeting appearance in Hamilton: An American Musical. “My grandmother couldn’t imagine Barack Obama in the White House, and I know she couldn’t imagine her grandson as presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church,” Curry once said of his historic election. Curry, who has two grown-up daughters, Rachel and Elizabeth, with his wife Sharon, has previously compared the LGBT and black civil rights movements, and is a staunch advocate of same-sex marriage. Royal wedding day pictures: Best photos from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle&#39;s ceremony and reception In 2015, when the Episcopal Church voted to allow gay couples to marry in religious ceremonies, Welby was temporarily furious at the rift such a progressive move could create. He said that the decision of Curry’s church would &quot;cause distress for some and have ramifications for the Anglican communion as a whole, as well as for its ecumenical and interfaith resolutions,” and the Episcopal Church was subsequently suspended from key voting positions in the Anglican Communion for three years. It rejoins next year. Curry, never one to back down easily, stood his ground. “I stand before you as a descendant of African slaves, stolen from their native land, enslaved in a bitter bondage, and then even after emancipation, segregated and excluded in church and society,” he said. “And this conjures that up again, and brings pain.” Welby and Curry have remained firm friends, however. Curry is a supporter of Thy Kingdom Come, a global prayer movement started in 2016 by Welby and Dr John Sentamu, the Archbishop of York, and the two men are thought to agree on many issues – not least the need to modernise the Anglican church and its image. With my brother @PB_Curry in Windsor getting ready for the #RoyalWedding tomorrow! We are praying God’s blessing on the couple and all involved. pic.twitter.com/j48oHn5LmN— Archbishop of Canterbury (@JustinWelby) May 18, 2018 A fanatical music fan, follower of the Buffalo Bills American football team and avid reader, Curry’s sermons are widely admired, despite frequently containing strong political undertones. As well as a vocal advocate of gay marriage, he has made veiled (and not-so-veiled) attacks on the Trump administration. “Very often our very faith has been hi-jacked by cultural voices more concerned about self-serving agenda and not concerned about self-sacrificial service for others. Where is the Christianity worried about immigrants? Where is the Christianity speaking up for those young dreamers? Where is the Christianity speaking up for children in our society and for the poor?” he preached earlier this year. Along with 22 other Christian leaders, he plans to join a march on the White House to “reclaim Jesus” just days after the royal wedding. Luckily the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth has made a Michael Curry Sermon Bingo card for the big day pic.twitter.com/FTFzZmtRe2— Breaking Butter (@breakingbutter) May 18, 2018 With his deep baritone voice and sing-song cadence, Curry’s inspirational (albeit occasionally very long) sermons tend to capture any audience’s attention, including the thousands who watch him on YouTube. According to his followers, wherever he preaches, he uses jokes, African-American spirituals, poetry and masterful storytelling to captivate the congregation. American fans on Twitter have even produced a ‘Michael Curry bingo’ card for viewers to play along with. “If you’re breathing, God’s calling!”, “Crazy Christians”, and simply the word “GO!” are among the phrases to look out for, apparently. Timings may be tight tomorrow, but don’t be surprised if Curry is allowed to steal an extra minute if he’s in full flow. Americans are confident he can bring down the house, or at the very least shine brightly in a day full of unexpected tweaks on tradition. “The man is 100% joy,&quot; said one Episcopalean commentator this week. &quot;Don’t be surprised if everyone at St. George’s Chapel is singing &#39;There is a balm in Gilead&#39; next Saturday.&quot; Here&#39;s hoping.

Dir: Spike Lee Cast: John David Washington, Adam Driver, Laura Harrier, Topher Grace. Cert TBC, 128 mins Spike Lee, a fixture at Cannes early in his career but still not yet a Palme-winner, is back in competition, and blazes a righteous trail through it with BlacKkKlansman, his true-life account of a black cop in Seventies Colorado Springs who managed to get himself enrolled in the KKK. Following 2015’s terrifically lively Chi-Raq and Lee’s TV spin-off of She’s Gotta Have It, this is yet more comeback fuel, attacking the spectre of white supremacism in America with mic-dropping aplenty, and thrusting its grievances right through the letterbox of the current White House. A heady hybrid of comedy, polemic and period crime drama, it could have been scattergun stuff, and there are patches of preachy overkill. Much more often, though, there’s a rollicking drive and focus to it, which might have something to do with Jordan (Get Out) Peele’s involvement in a producing capacity. Other Lee joints, like Chi-Raq and the underrated Bamboozled, have practically combusted with the fury of his satirical indignation. This one channels the same thing for populist thrills and spills: as such, it’s sure to reach the biggest audience of any Lee picture since Inside Man (2006), and fully deserves to. Before the plot proper starts, Lee opens fire by excerpting the famous Atlanta train-yard triage shot from Gone with the Wind, with Vivien Leigh picking her way through the (entirely white) war wounded. Nuggets of film history pepper the movie, including the oft-cited fact that The Birth of a Nation was used as a recruitment tool to get the KKK back up and running. Meanwhile, Alec Baldwin has a fourth-wall-breaking cameo, indulgent but forgivable, as a far-right spokesperson, one Dr Kennebrew Beauregard, ranting about America’s tolerance of the “inferior race” and not stopping at people of colour: he blames government inaction on “the international Jewish conspiracy” before you can even get the words “Mel Gibson” out. With bursts of sax from Terence Blanchard’s swaggering score, we’re then introduced to Ron Stallworth, played underneath a whopping afro by John David (son of Denzel) Washington. A rookie recruit in Colorado Springs’ police department, he’s fed up of menial duties in the records room, and pleads with his boss (an excellent Robert John Burke) to let him go undercover. So it is that he finds himself picking up the phone and kick-starting an association with the local chapter of the Klan. Still, getting down there to make a personal introduction, as a black guy, is clearly not going to fly. The real BlacKkKlansman: how a black cop infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan In steps Adam Driver, on splendidly aloof, chilled-out form as Flip, a Jewish station colleague who humours Ron more than exactly respecting him. While Ron does all the legwork over the phone, it’s Flip who poses as him physically, dishing out their agreed cover story to win over all the local chapter’s hick racists – well, all except Felix (a scowling Jasper Pääkönen), whose unending suspicion is going to take work. Washington, the spit of his father in the He Got Game era, gives a stoic, slow-burning, beefily charismatic performance, and undeniably owns the movie. After a stalled career in American football – slyly referenced when the cops bond over a love of OJ Simpson – stardom is very much his for the taking. Lee and his screenwriters get good comic mileage out of Ron and Flip having to sound like each other – only possible because of Ron’s claim that he’s simultaneously fluent in the King’s English and jive. They thoroughly manage to fool KKK Grand Wizard David Duke (an amusingly lightweight Topher Grace), who’s pointedly equated throughout with Trump, even dropping soundbites about making America great again. I, Tonya’s Paul Walter Hauser has another plum redneck role, too, as Ivanhoe, the chapter’s most egregiously thick member. The stupidity of these clowns makes them very easy targets, but Lee unshamedly claps them in the stocks, along with every wielder of the N word – some wearing police badges – he can get his hands on. The movie gets cathartic kicks out of its undercover-brother attitude, all hepcat style – Shaft meets Superfly – with a Black Power salute that’s ready to do damage. Lee doesn’t need to remind us about Trump’s “very fine people” defence of Charlottesville’s neo-Nazis, but it’s very much his style to do exactly that, jumping from cross-burning on the lawn to videophone footage from the protests in 2017. Easily the most violent images in his movie, in fact, come in the form of documentary evidence that American bigotry is anything but a thing of the past. No one will race to BlacKkKlansman for new perspective, so much as a despairing overview pumped out with refreshing playfulness. It certainly doesn’t prod at the uncomfortable boundaries of white liberal racism the way Get Out did – it’s a more tub-thumping, straight-ahead piece of work. You get the sense of Lee building bridges more than wanting to burn them – he’s even making amends. After long-standing accusations of antisemitism in his work, stretching back to the crude stereotypes in Mo’ Better Blues (1990), he spends a lot of time here forging an alliance between the Washington and Driver characters, brothers united against the racial hatred of their common enemy. The film has some spotty passages, but when has it ever been otherwise with Lee? He exists to be uneven. Besides, watching him casually nail these sitting-duck targets, given all the spleen and sharp-shooting we know he’s capable of, is actually very funny.
