If there was one person who, let’s face it, nailed their speech on Saturday, it was undoubtedly . Sorry, Harry, Meghan and Wills but you guys don’t have anything on ol’ Curry.

During the nuptials, you could hear a pin drop in homes around the world as viewers were mesmerised by the goosebump-inducing words from the bishop as he spoke of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr's enduring message of compassion and the power in love.

However, despite his charismatic hold over the congregation and royal fans alike, Curry is still shocked he managed to keep his cool during Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.

‘Well at first I must admit to being a little bit nervous at the very beginning…but then I was speaking to a young couple who were in love,’ he said on the show earlier this morning.

‘They are so passionately in love with each other, you can see it. I was really aware that their love for each other…was actually even in that moment reorientating the world around that love. All of the divisions and differences were being crossed and worlds were coming together and another world was coming together. That was the power.'

We're not crying, it's just the air conditioning up in here.

Opening up about the moment he received the invite to be the person delivering the sermon, Curry said: ‘I just didn’t believe it, but then when I realised I said, “Well I guess I better call the Archbishop back”. So I called him back and said “I really don’t believe it” and then I couldn’t say anything to anybody for almost two months.'

On the subject of whether he thought his emotive speech would be shocking to a traditionally reserved British Monarchy, Curry said he ‘didn’t know’ how his words would go down, but that he hoped for the best.

‘I knew that they had asked me to come and that’s me so, I showed up,’ he laughed.

When Curry had finished, he wasn’t aware of whether his speech had gone down well with viewers and the royal family, but said he sat down afterwards and told himself: ‘I hope that was ok’.

Well, ‘ok’ was an understatement. He raised the roof.

Opening up about the profound messages in his speech, Curry said: ‘The whole service had their [the Royal Family’s] permissions. Nothing would’ve happened in the service without, in some sense, their blessings. I was aware of that.

‘I’ve been doing this for a long time…I’ve learned to be able to hear an “Amen” by looking in their eyes and I was looking in the eyes of the people who were there and they were doing quiet British "Amens".'

Curry, you have stolen our hearts.
