Meghan Markle is set to marry Prince Harry on May 19th, 2018 in what will surely be the wedding of the century. The pre-wedding duties are in full swing with the wedding only being weeks away and we’re all feeling the wedding jitters!
Meghan Markle, who's an American citizen, has an especially busy couple weeks ahead of her since she is not only marrying a British citizen, but she’s marrying British monarchy. Her pre-marriage requirements come in hefty sizes.
Perhaps the biggest and most talked-about duty ahead of Meghan is her baptism. Meghan was raised Protestant and attended a Catholic school while growing up. In March 2018, however, she will be baptized as an Anglican by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at Kensington Palace.
The Sunday Times states that she will formally embrace the Anglican religion in the private service. While the baptism will not be televised, key individuals will be in attendance. Meghan’s mother and father will be in attendance, as well as Harry’s family. Esteemed members of the monarchy will also be present.
This act is very sacred. Meghan is doing this act in respect for not only her future husband but also Queen Elizabeth II, who is the head of the Church of England.
This is something that the Queen deems honorable in the highest regards and while she has given no official comment, we are certain that she is pleased with Meghan’s request.
The baptism is said to take place in March, with the wedding following only two months behind. Surely, this will be a busy and exciting time for Meghan and her future family!
