The book also discusses the Duchess’s regular encounters with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby prior to her baptism in the Church of England prior to her marriage, with whom, according to a royal assistant, she formed a “ close bond. ”
Although Meghan’s family was not overly religious, she was raised with a ‘sense of God’.
Her mother Doria Ragland was raised a Protestant and her father Thomas Markle became a confirmed member of the Episcopalian Church at the age of 14, but Meghan attended a Catholic school for educational reasons.
According to Thomas, Meghan was not baptized as a child because he and Doria did not share the same faith.
A family friend claimed that religion was “not forced upon her,” but her spirituality was “born of her own individual experience.”
While studying at Northwestern, one of Meghan’s best friends came from a Christian family and the couple are said to ‘often pray together while at school’.
The authors write that this cemented prayer is a resource for Meghan to help her face the challenges of life.
The book also discusses the Duchess’s regular meetings with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby prior to her baptism in the Church of England prior to her wedding (pictured), with whom, according to a royal assistant, she formed a ‘close bond’.
‘She gathered the cast and crew of Suits for a prayer circle before going to work,’ they claim. Her on-set spells were never about any specific theology.
“Instead, she wanted to bring everyone together during moments of transition or difficulty.”
Meghan’s choice to get baptized before marrying Harry was apparently her choice out of respect for the queen and a “ step forward on her own spiritual journey, ” according to a friend.
During her meetings with the Archbishop, the couple reportedly discussed ‘many personal matters’, including her previous marriage to producer Trevor Engelson, with Mr Welby asking her ‘what she learned from her divorce’.
Speaking of her baptism, one of the 18 guests described the service, held at At James’ Palace’s Chapel Royal in March 2018, as’ uplifting ‘.
Meanwhile, it describes how the guests, including not the Queen, Prince William or Kate Middleton, attended a dinner at Clarence House hosted by Prince Charles and Camilla in honor of the sacred event.
The biography provides insight into Harry and Meghan’s relationships with his brother and sister-in-law, his father, and the royal family as a whole.
