Meghan Markle is due to be christened sometime in March in preparation for her wedding to Prince Harry on 19 May. The Sunday Times reports that her baptism and confirmation will be held at Kensington Palace by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury. As well as Prince Harry, Meghan’s mum, Doria Ragland, and dad, Thomas Markle, are also set to fly to the UK to attend the ceremony. The baptism will see Meghan – who was raised Protestant – join the Church of England.It is thought that Meghan had asked Justin Welby to lead the service after the pair formed a close friendship. A source told the publication: “She has formed a close bond with him. She and Harry have been doing wedding prep with him.” While she doesn’t need to convert in order to marry Harry, Meghan is said to have chosen to be baptized to honour the Queen’s role as head of the Church or England.
