Meghan Markle and Prince Harry recently greeted crowds during their trip to Birmingham, and Meghan was spotted wearing a diamond cross bracelet – which is believed to represent her recent confirmation.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the former actress, who was brought up as an Episcopalian, was baptised into the Church of England in a secret ceremony on Tuesday evening with her fiancé Prince Harry by her side.
Meghan’s new bling is definitely a nod to her recent baptism, which reportedly took place at St. James’ Palace in London, and was attended by Meghan’s future father-in-law, Prince Charles, and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
The former Suits star was confirmed immediately following her baptism, just in time for her upcoming nuptials to Prince Harry on May 19 at Windsor Castle.
Members of the royal family cannot be Catholic in order to remain in the line of succession, and the vast majority are members of the Church of England.
In fact, up until 2013, laws forbade members of the family from marrying someone who is Catholic.
Meghan’s baptism comes after her soon-to-be sister-in-law Kate Middleton was confirmed into the Church of England in a private service at St. James’s Palace just weeks before her 2011 marriage to Prince William.
