The soon-to-be-wed couple was spotted in a car pulling into the castle on Thursday, E! reports. This is the first time Markle and Prince Harry have been seen together since their most recent public engagement, in April, though they’ve understandably had a hectic month leading up to the big day. Markle wore a cream-colored blouse, diamond earrings, and (of course) her iconic engagement ring, as she smiled and waved at fans. Prince Harry sat by her side. Prince William and Kate Middleton rode together in a nearby car, driven by William himself. Royals: They’re just like us!

With less than 48 hours to go before the wedding takes place, the royal family appears to be in full prep mode. Though this week has had its fair share of headline-making drama—most of it related to Markle’s father—the entire wedding party looked calm, cool, and collected rolling into the estate.
Though they arrived at the venue together, Prince Harry and Markle will be taking some time apart before exchanging their vows. Per tradition, they will stay in separate accommodations the night before the wedding, with Prince Harry and Prince William at the Coworth Park Hotel in Berkshire, 15 minutes away, and Markle and her mom, Doria Ragland, at the Cliveden House Hotel, 25 minutes away.
Though St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle is undoubtedly a stunning space for a royal wedding (or any wedding, for that matter), it actually wasn’t the couple’s first choice. They had reportedly initially wanted to host their nuptials at Frogmore House, where they took their engagement photos, but it was reportedly vetoed by the rest of the royal family. Given what we know about the flowers, cake, and venue in general, though, there is no doubt that Saturday’s event at Windsor Castle will be beautiful.
