Meghan Markle To Be Baptised Before Nuptials

Meghan Markl has been a part of many religions in her life.

Raised Protestant, then attended a Catholic School, was married to a Jewish man and will now be baptised and confirmed as an Anglican!

The Archbishop of Canterbury, the head of the Anglican Church, is expected to baptise Prince Harry's fiancee Meghan Markle ahead of the couple's wedding in May, The Sunday Times reports.

A private baptism of Markle, who was raised a Protestant but attended a Catholic school, is expected to take place this month, possibly this week, in a chapel at Kensington Palace, the couple's residence in London, the newspaper said.

Markle has asked the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby who, according to an unidentified source, is "close to the couple" to perform the baptism service.

Welby will officiate at the wedding of Harry, 33, and Meghan, 36, in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle on May 19.

The Times quoted its source as saying the couple had been "doing wedding prep" with Welby.

It added that the baptism was believed to be Markle's own choice and was not a requirement of her royal marriage.

Welby told Sky News last month that the Church of England had already "dealt with" the issue of Markle's divorce from her previous husband.
