Archbishop of Canterbury DENIES marrying Meghan and Harry

Archbishop of Canterbury DENIES marrying Meghan and Harry

The Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has contradicted Meghan Markle's claim that she married Prince Harry several days before their official marriage at Windsor Castle in 2018.

Meghan Markle told Oprah Winfrey that she wed Prince Harry in a secret ceremony officiated by the Archbishop a few days before their official marriage.

“You know, three days before our wedding, we got married - no-one knows that,” she said.

“Just the two of us in our backyard with the Archbishop of Canterbury.”

Welby has come out and said that their legal marriage took place on Saturday.

“The legal marriage took place on that Saturday,” Welby was quoted as saying by Die Welt.

“I would have committed a crime if I had signed something that was not true.”

The Archbishop of Canterbury said that he had a "series of private and pastoral meetings" with Harry and Meghan, but didn't share what was in that conversation.

“If you talk to a priest, you can expect that conversation to remain private," he said when pressed.
