He is due to give a speech at the wedding ceremony next Saturday, upon request of Meghan.

Bishop Curry has said there is a "crisis of moral and political leadership" in the US and has criticised the president.

He wrote a letter denouncing Trump – who has not been invited to the wedding – which was signed by 22 other Christian leaders last week.

It said: "We reject the resurgence of white nationalism and racism in our nation on many fronts, including the highest levels of ­political leadership."

The first African-American bishop to have serves as the Episcopal Church's presiding bishop, and will travel to Windsor to take part in the service.

The Episcopal Church is an offshoot of the Church of England in the US and forms part of the broader Anglican Communion worldwide.

Bishop Curry, from Chicago, has backed gay marriage and transgender rights.

He criticised Trump's decision to revoke the right for transgender people to serve in the military.

He said: "Discrimination based on gender identity or sexual orientation is a violation of the fundamental ideal of equality in America."

The bishop said of the happy couple: "The love that has brought and will bind Prince Harry and Ms 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."

The Archbishop of Canterbury will marry Prince Harry and Meghan, with Meghan having been baptised by him ahead of the service.
