Meghan Markle might not be a royal quite yet, but she's already using her powerful podium to inspire the masses, with a particular focus on the feminist issues that are most important to her.

Meghan Markle has reportedly been baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury in a secret ceremony with her fiancé Prince Harry at her side.

The baptism comes ahead of Markle's wedding to Prince Harry on May 19.

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.

In a sweet gesture, Meghan embraced the aspiring actress with a heartwarming hug before telling her to follow her dreams. She said: "He said, 'You need to be confident and you can achieve whatever you want to achieve.' Meghan said that one day she will see me being an actress".

Markle enveloped her in a hug. Markle's mother Doria Ragland and father Thomas Markle were also not at the ceremony. 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.

Hosted by social enterprise Stemettes at Millennium Point, Markle and Prince Harry met with young women from local secondary schools to find out more about their motivations to study STEM subjects. The couple were greeted by students and other well-wishers, including pets.

It's not unusual for the Archbishop to conduct baptisms for the Royal Family, as he was previously chosen by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge to baptize their children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte. The ceremony will start at 12 p.m. They also took a trip to the Nechells Wellbeing Centre to join the sports mentorship organization Coach Core's apprentices as they take part in a training class.
