Meghan Markle appears to have touched down in the United Kingdom for the holidays, and made a surprise and very unexpected appearance at a party Queen Elizabeth II threw for her staff on Monday.

The party took place at Windsor Castle, and Meghan reportedly wore a "festive red dress" and chatted to the Queen's employees, many of whom are involved in planning her wedding to Prince Harry. "Harry and Meghan spent about an hour at the party and they were really friendly and went around talking to everyone," a source tells Hello Magazine (opens in new tab). "Meghan was very sweet and so beautiful."

The Daily Mail's royal reporter Rebecca English also confirmed the news, saying a source told her "[Meghan] was unbelievably beautiful and Harry looked so proud."
