Prince Harry and Meghan's Wedding Bishop Michael Curry Fighting Cancer

Bishop Michael Curry -- the man who told Prince Harry and Meghan "love is the way" -- is now dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

Bishop Curry says he found out a few months ago, during an annual exam, he has prostate cancer ... and he's now decided on a course of treatment.

He'll undergo surgery next week to remove his prostate gland, and anticipates taking 4-6 weeks to recuperate ... before getting back to work. Curry says, "I am happy to say that the prognosis looks very good and quite positive."

The bishop's "love is the way" homily stole the show at the royal wedding and brought him international fame. We saw him in NYC getting swarmed by fans the week after the ceremony.
