Over the river and through the woods, to Buckingham Palace the royal family goes.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry joined Kate Middleton, Prince William and 50 or so other royal family members at Gan-Gan Queen Elizabeth II’s annual pre-Christmas lunch today.

The soon-to-be duchess donned a high-necked lace dress by Self-Portrait (her almost sister-in-law Kate has worn the same one. Twinsies!) and diamond drop earrings for her first meet-and-greet with the many royal family members.

Prince William and K-Middy arrived slightly earlier than their newly engaged counterparts. The Duchess of Cambridge opted for a coat with a faux-fur trim for the festive occasion.
