Harry and Meghan’s wedding preacher Michael Curry released from hospital

by Kelly Valencia

The bishop who delivered the sermon at Prince Harry and Meghan's wedding, Bishop Michael Curry, has been discharged from hospital following brain surgery on 4th December.

The 70-year-old experienced a subdural hematoma, commonly known as a brain bleed, which resulted from a blood vessel bursting in his brain after a fall during a visit to Syracuse, New York.

After spending four days in hospital, the Episcopal Church of the United States confirmed Bishop Michael’s discharge and noted that he is now "recovering at home".

The statement continued: “His surgeon is happy with his continued progress, and Bishop Curry will be attending follow-up appointments and working from home in the days ahead.”

This year has presented health challenges for the royal wedding preacher, as he has encountered multiple instances of internal bleeding.

In September, Bishop Michael, who is in the last year of his nine-year term as the 27th presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church, had an adrenal gland and a non-cancerous mass removed as it was thought to be linked to his internal bleeding episodes.

In a recent update from the church, Bishop Michael expressed his gratitude for the "outpouring of love, prayers, and support" received by him and his family during this challenging time.

The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
