Meghan Markle Will Make Life-Altering Change For Prince Harry... And It's Happening This Week
It’s no secret that Meghan Markle has been making some big changes in preparation for her May wedding to Prince Harry.
Before the announcement of their engagement in November, Markle announced her departure from her role on the TV show Suits. She had been on the show since its premiere in 2011.
After that, many fans began to speculate something big was happening between her and Prince Harry, as Markle had been spending more and more time in England.
The actress-turned-future-royal had made the Canadian city of Toronto her home in order to be on location to film for the show. She has since moved to England full-time following the engagement announcement.
And as the news broke, the list of changes Markle will make for her future husband began to grow.
Of course, rumors have been circulating, among them being her plans to become a British citizen.
But perhaps one of the most life-altering changes she is set to make is her decision to join the Church of England.
Although she was raised Protestant and attended Catholic high school, Markle has decided to be baptized and confirmed as Anglican this month.
Reports now say her conversion may take place as early as this week.
And while Markle is not required to be Anglican to marry Prince Harry, she has chosen to do so out of respect for Queen Elizabeth II.
As the sovereign, the Queen holds the title of “Defender of the Faith and Supreme Governor of the Church of England,” a title which Markle will honor with her conversion.
Markle is following in Kate Middleton’s footsteps, as the Duchess was confirmed before her marriage to Prince William in 2011. However, the change is slightly bigger for Markle, as Kate had already been baptized as a baby.
The baptism and confirmation will take place at Kensington Palace, and the Archbishop of Canterbury will preside.
In addition to Prince Harry, both Markle’s mother and father are expected to be in attendance.
The event may also mark the first meeting between Prince Harry and Markle’s father Thomas. During the couple’s first interview following their engagement, Markle said that Harry had “talked to my dad a few times, hasn’t been able to meet him just yet.”
No matter what, the royal wedding is sure to be the event of the century. The nuptials are set to take place on May 19 in St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, the same place Prince Harry was baptized in 1984.
