Meghan Markle is confirmed in the Church of England.
According to The Daily Mail, Prince Harry’s future wife was baptised in a private, 45-minute ceremony held on Tuesday evening. The service, which was presided over by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, took place inside a chapel on the Kensington Palace grounds.
Kensington Palace declined to comment. It was previously reported the baptism would take place sometime in March and “possibly” this week.
In addition to Prince Harry, attendees reportedly included Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince William were not present for Markle’s baptism, according to the outlet.
Both Meghan’s mother and father, Doria Ragland and Thomas Markle, were expected to attend, with multiple sources saying they’d make the trip to England.
Following the baptism, Prince Charles and Camilla then reportedly hosted a dinner for 18 guests at the Clarence House.
A source described inside the modest chapel, describing it as a “wonderfully peaceful space rich in history.”
Last weekend, a small group of Meghan’s “London friends” gathered for a bridal shower at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire. Congrats to Meghan!
