Meghan Markle has taken her journey to royalty one step further after being baptized into the Church of England.
Baptized and ready
The Daily Mail has reported that Prince Harry’s future wife was baptized during a brief ceremony on Tuesday, March 6th. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, officiated the ceremony that took place on the Kensington Palace grounds.
Witnesses to the occasion included Meghan’s soon-to-be husband Prince Harry, Prince Charles, and Duchess Camilla. Prince William and the Queen of England were reportedly absent.
A closely-guarded secret
Meghan’s baptism symbolizes her introduction into the Anglican faith ahead of her wedding, which takes place in two months. It’s an important step that takes her from a divorced American actress to the future granddaughter-in-law of the Queen of England.
Despite many speculations as to where and when the ceremony would take place, the actual date was a secret, and everything was carried out with help from very few royal aides.
After the 36-year-old got baptized, the next step was her confirmation, something she had to do if she wants to join Harry at Holy Communion.
It is not compulsory that Meghan officially becomes Anglican to be married to Harry at the church. But the former ‘Suits’ actress chose to do so to show her respect for the Queen and the monarch’s role as the head of the Church of England.
