"And Meghan said she would like to see me on TV when I become an actress".

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

US actress Meghan Markle has been baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the spiritual head of the Church of England, ahead of her royal wedding in May to Britain's Prince Harry, the Daily Mail newspaper reported on Thursday.

It seems like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been engaged forever, and in two weeks, they will finally walk down the aisle and (presumably) say their "I Dos".

Meghan's entry into the faith has been seen as a subtle nod to her future grandmother-in-law, the Queen, who is the Supreme Governor 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.

Markle was also confirmed immediately after the baptism, meaning she is now able to join her Harry at Holy Communion.
