Posted by

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s wedding officiant, Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, recently shared some details about Markle’s  “beautiful” baptism ceremony.


“It was very special. It was beautiful and sincere and very moving,” the Archbishop of Canterbury told ITV News on Friday about Meghan’s baptism on March 6. “It was a great privilege.”

Prince Harry and the bride-to-be’s father in law, Prince Charles, were in attendance at the event held at the Church of England in a private ceremony at St. James’s Palace in London, according to ET.


The archbishop, who will officiate Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding admitted to being nervous when it came to the big day.

“Unlike recent weddings, I must not drop the ring,” he joked, “and I must not forget to get the vows in the right order as I did at the rehearsal for one of my children’s weddings!”


He has helped the couple prepare for their wedding, and has experienced first hand the love they share with one another.

“At the heart of it is two people who have fallen in love with each other, who are committing their lives to each other with the most beautiful words and profound thoughts, who do it in the presence of God, through Jesus Christ,” Welby said. “You pray for them to have the strength to fulfill their vows and you seek to do it in a way that respects their integrity and honors their commitment.”
