Ragland met other members of the royal family—including the Duke and Duchess and two of their three children Prince George and Princess Charlotte—on Thursday when Harry and Meghan had their wedding rehearsal (opens in new tab) at Windsor Castle. She also met Prince Charles, who will be walking Meghan down the aisle (opens in new tab), and his wife Camila at Clarence House.

Tonight, Meghan and her mother will stay at the Cliveden House Hotel (opens in new tab) in Windsor. We'll get to see a glimpse of them heading there to spend the night before Ragland accompanies Meghan tomorrow to the wedding ceremony about 25 minutes away. Meanwhile, Harry will stay in a separate hotel at the Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park.
