Meghan Markle will be baptized into the Church of England to please the Queen, despite her Catholic schooling and ‘Jewish first wedding’.
Miss Markle, from Los Angeles, will be both baptised and confirmed as she prepares for her church wedding with Prince Harry, in May.
The bride-to-be is Christian, a member of the Protestant faith who went to a Catholic high school.
Her mother Doria Ragland is Protestant while her father Thomas Markle is Episcopalian.
However, her first husband, US TV producer Trevor Engelson, was Jewish and the couple tied the knot in a Bohemian ceremony at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
The wedding lasted four days and in keeping with Jewish traditions, the couple were lifted on chairs as the guests danced in celebration at their reception.
