Prior to tying the knot to Prince Harry, the former Suits actress, 36, will be baptized and confirmed in the Church of England. The announcement came during a press briefing on Tuesday, November 28, just one day after their engagement news was publicized.

Though Markle, whose father is Presbyterian and mother is Protestant, attended Catholic high school in the United States, she currently identifies as Protestant. The gesture of committing to the rituals also comes as a genuine nod to Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, who is the Supreme Governor of the Church of England.
