Justin Welby told the BBC that U.K. rapper Stormzy’s track Blinded By Your Grace “sort of sums it up” when it comes to his thoughts on the big day: “I stay prayed up and get the job done.”
He confessed to being “nervous” before any wedding and told listeners to BBC’s regional station covering Coventry & Warwickshire that he has been known to make the occasional wedding misstep, including dropping a ring and not getting vows in the correct order.
“I’ve made a couple of cack-handed mistakes over the last couple of weddings I’ve been involved in,” said Welby, “and I’m thinking this is probably not a good moment to make it a hat-trick.”
Last week, Kensington Palace made several announcements about the wedding, including the fact Meghan, 36, won’t have a maid of honor and that Harry, 33, will meet his future father-in-law, Thomas Markle, for the first time in the run-up to the May 19 service at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
It is expected to be a quiet upcoming 10 days for the couple, as no public outings are planned while they continue their preparation for the wedding.
