Meghan Markle Spent Her Bridal Shower Doing This


The baptism formally brings the divorced American actress into the Anglican faith and is an important step in her royal journey.

Meghan Markle has become a member of the Church of England after she was baptized and confirmed in a secret ceremony at St. James's Palace in London this week.

While Prince Harry, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla and one of Markle's friends were all present at the baptism, Prince William and Duchess Kate were not in attendance.

When they came to a group of school children, Harry began asking them about their hopes for the future and when 10-year-old Sophie Richards said she wanted to be an actress he took her over to meet Meghan.

The move appears to be a mark of respect to the Queen Elizabeth II, who is the head of the Church of England.

Hostages taken as US Veterans home in California
According to the Napa Valley Register , police were called to the Veterans Home to investigate a report of a man with a gun. CNN reports that the center is home to around 1,000 retired veterans and is the largest such facility in the country.

"I'm a huge fan of them - I'm from Canada so I had to come see them because this is a once in a lifetime opportunity and it was just awesome", said student Brandy Davis, 20, from Toronto who is studying at a nearby university. Straying from tradition to hug a young fan, however, doesn't seem to be that big of a deal: Kate Middleton has done it a few times, as has Princess Diana, and Markle herself embraced a charity worker who was inspired by her United Nations speech just last month. "She would have picked her, that is the way forward", Burrell said about Princess Diana picking Markle for her son (via Express).

Nearly as soon as they arrived, Markle was spotted having adorable rapport with the crowds of children who had gathered to see her.

The former Suits actress, 36, once again stole the show as she made a rare appearance with husband-to-be Prince Harry, before greeting fans at Birmingham's Millennium Point. The couple were greeted by students and other well-wishers, including pets.

That wasn't the couple's only brush with encouraging young women on IWD.

They then visited Coach Core, which is run by The Royal Foundation and provides sports apprentices to young people. It was recently revealed they had invited members of the public to their wedding day too.
