Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby administered the holy sacrament in a 45-minute service on Tuesday evening at the palace's Chapel Royal with her fiance, Prince Harry, by her side, United Kingdom media outlets reported, quoting the Daily Mail.

Plans surrounding the baptism were kept a closely guarded secret, with only a few royal aides involved.

While this is one tradition the American Protestant has chosen to follow before she marries Prince Harry, there are plenty she is pushing aside.

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.

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. After she reportedly told Prince Harry she wanted to be an actress, he brought her over to talk to the former Suits star.

Lauren-Mae Sparrow, 13, caught the interest of Prince Harry after telling an audience she aimed to be an army officer engineer, winning a round of applause as she said: "Should our gender define who we are and what jobs we are allowed to do?"

The decision to conduct the rite at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace will hold special importance for Prince Harry. That's because members of the public typically greet royals in very specific ways.

Kensington Palace announced last week that 2,000 members of the public will be invited to the wedding.
