And while their ceremony will be a little more high-brow than your average commoner's, Meghan Markle spent her bridal shower doing what every woman wants to do before her wedding: getting pampered.

Meghan Markle has reportedly been baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury using holy water from the River Jordan ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.

The Mail said Harry's father, heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were present but Queen Elizabeth, the titular head of the Church of England, was not.

Sophia is 10-years-old and came along with her classmates to Millennium Point at Birmingham to see Prince Harry and his fiancé Meghan Markle.

The baptism, which formally introduces Meghan into the Anglican faith, was not required in order for the soon-to-be royal to marry in church, but it is understood it was something she was keen to do.

In a sweet gesture, Meghan embraced the aspiring actress with a heartwarming hug before telling her to follow her dreams.
