A graduate of Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva delivered the address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding on Saturday.

According to the school, Rev. Michael B. Curry graduated in 1975. Curry is the 27th Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church. He reportedly traveled from Chicago, Illinois to England to take part in the service.

According to the Associated Press, Curry is the first black leader of the Episcopal Church in the United States. He quoted Martin Luther King Jr. and African-American spirituals during a lively address that contrasted with the solemn approach the royal family is used to. Curry's style inspired a few quizzical glances and rave reviews.
