Meghan’s big sacrifice before royal wedding

PRINCE Harry's fiance Meghan Markle - who was raised Protestant, attended a Catholic school and was once married to a Jewish man - will be baptised and confirmed as an Anglican.

The Archbishop of Canterbury will preside at the ceremony at Kensington Palace, the New York Post reports.

Among those who will attend the ceremony, which will be held this month - possibly as early as this week - are her parents.

Her father, Thomas, lives in Mexico and has not yet met his future son-in-law.

Her mom, Doria Ragland, will be coming to London from her home in California.

The bride-to-be does not have to be Anglican to marry the prince.

The report said she chose to be baptised as a sign of respect for Queen Elizabeth's role as head of the Church of England.

The couple will marry on May 19 in St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Her dad and mom are Protestant. They divorced when she was six. She went to the Catholic Immaculate Heart girls-only high school. Her first husband, Trevor Engelson, was Jewish.
