With just weeks until the royal wedding, Kate Middleton has been confirmed into the Church of England.

Prince William is said to have attended the ceremony, which was carried out last month by Right Rev. Richard Chartres, the bishop of London.

As second in line to the throne, William is set to become supreme head of the Church of England, but confirmation is not necessary to marry a future monarch.

As a confirmed member, Middleton is entitled to receive communion in the Church of England.
