Meghan Markle 'secretly baptised' ahead of May wedding to Prince Harry

GETTY    
     MUM'S THE WORD Meghan’s mother Doria Radlan is flying in from America

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan Markle had Prince Harry by her side as she was baptised using holy water from the River Jordan.

The service itself, People reported, was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, in the Royal Chapel at St. James's Palace in London.

The ceremony on Tuesday was small and intimate, with only 18 guests in attendance, including her fiancé Harry and future parents-in-law, Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.

While she did not need to become Anglican in order to marry into the family, she reportedly chose to do it out of respect for the Queen, the head of the Church of England.

The little girl in question, Sophia Richards, stopped Prince Harry during his meet and greet to tell him she wanted to be an actress one day. According to Richards, Markle told her she can achieve whatever she wants to, adding that she'd like to see her on TV one day.

Charlize Theron Reveals You're Probably Pronouncing Her Name Wrong: 'You're Not Fancy'
The Oscar victor revealed on " Jimmy Kimmel Live " Wednesday that her mother, Gerda , is now also her medical marijuana supplier. Actor David Oyelowo has said he was surprised to find out that his " Gringo " co-star Charlize Theron swears like a sailor.

The Chapel Royal is near and dear to the royals, as it's where Princess Diana's body was kept the week before her funeral and was also the place of Prince George's christening in 2013. She previously attended her first award ceremony with Harry on February 1 and most recently joined William and Kate for their first royal engagement as a group of four.

The former Suits actress, 36, once again stole the show as she made a rare appearance with husband-to-be Prince Harry, before greeting fans at Birmingham's Millennium Point.

The royal couple - who are set to be married in May - attended an event hosted by mentoring program Stemettes that aims to inspire the next generation of women to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, Kensington Palace said.

Meghan gave a schoolgirl a hug when she revealed her acting dream.

It's easy to say that this was a moment crafted for the world's cameras by a royal PR team who clearly know what they're doing. The couple, who were visiting the city on International Women's Day, hinted wedding pressure may be rising as they prepare for their nuptials on 19 May.
