Justin Welby the Archbishop of Canterbury wrote a moving speech following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

This occurred as churches all around the United Kingdom held memorial services for the Queen.

Bishops are required to give a speech at their own cathedrals upon the death of a monarch, which is why Justin Welby did at Canterbury Cathedral.

He spoke lovingly of the Queen, describing her as a “wonderful person.”

Who is Justin Welby?

Over the course of his 11-year career, Justin Portal Welby spent five of those years in Paris working for the French energy corporation Elf Aquitaine.

Before retiring in 1989, he accepted the position of treasurer at Enterprise Oil plc in London.

Welby claimed that he felt called by God to serve as an ordained minister.

The Kensington Bishop John Hughes initially turned him down for ordination, telling him: “There is no place for you in the Church of England.”

But Sandy Millar, the vicar of Holy Trinity Brompton, eventually accepted him.

He completed his theological studies at St. John’s College in Durham and his training at Cranmer Hall before being ordained as a deacon in 1992 and a priest in 1993.

The Most Reverend Justin Welby has published a lot of articles about morality and money.

After initially claiming it was “absolutely ludicrous” for him to be selected because he had only been a bishop for a brief period of time, he was named Archbishop of Canterbury in 2013.

In February 2013, Welby’s appointment as the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury was announced.

Dr. Rowan Williams, who retired at the end of December 2012, was succeeded by him.

Notably, he presided over the marriage of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at St. George’s Chapel in May 2018 while serving as Archbishop of Canterbury.

The ceremony at St. George’s Chapel was officiated by the Rt. Rev. David Conner, dean of Windsor.

However, the couple exchanged vows in front of Justin Welby.

The Archbishop of Canterbury said in a statement: “I am so happy that Prince Harry and Ms Markle have chosen to make their vows before God.

Justin Welby’s net worth is approximately £3million.
