The royal wedding is in just a few months and ahead of the big day, Meghan Markle is taking Prince Harry’s religion. 

Markle, who was raised Protestant, attended a Catholic school and was once married to a Jewish man, will reportedly be baptised as an Anglican this month, according to the Sunday Times of London.

The ceremony will take place at Kensington Palace with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the newspaper continues, revealing Meghan’s parents will also both be in attendance. 

While Meghan doesn’t have to be Anglican to marry into the royal family, she’s reportedly chosen to be baptised as a sign of respect for Queen Elizabeth’s role as head of the Church of England.
