Meghan Markle to be baptised

Their royal wedding is set for May 19.

However, The Sun is reporting that several of Markle's close friends will be in attendance, including British reality TV star Millie Mackintosh, fashion designer Misha Nonoo, and Violet von Westenholz, who is a friend of Prince Harry's.

Meghan Markle's mother, Doria Ragland, is expected to attend the private ceremony to have the duchess-to-be baptized.

Prince Harry and Ms Markle, an American actress, will marry at noon on May 19 in St George's Chapel, the 15th century church on the grounds of Windsor Castle that has always been the backdrop of choice for royal occasions. But it's reported that the California native chose to be baptized as a sign of respect for Queen Elizabeth's role as head of the Church of England.

Her first husband, Trevor Engelson, was Jewish, but she did not take his faith. She never converted to Judaism and the couple divorced two years after getting married.

"It's not a problem", Welby said about Markle's divorce. The baptism will see Meghan - who was raised Protestant - join the Church of England. "We went through that as anyone would who will officiate at a wedding where someone has been separated and a partner is still living".

Drinkers will be able to toast Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal wedding a little longer in their local pub thanks to relaxed licensing laws.

The number does not include those invited to the ceremony at the castle's St George's Chapel, which seats about 800.

Meghan Markle is due to be christened sometime in March in preparation for her wedding to Prince Harry on 19 May.

About 1,200 of those invited will be members of the general public.
