Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall also attended the service. In addition, her father, Thomas Markle is reported to have flown to London from his home in Mexico while her mother Doria Radlan travelled from her home in LA.

Her baptism was then followed by her confirmation, which now allows her to join Harry, at Holy Communion. Meghan had made the decision to both be baptised and confirmed out of respect for the Queen’s role as the head of the Church of England.
