Royal wedding: Meghan Markle and mother Doria Ragland arrive at hotel in Windsor


Meghan Markle and her mother, Doria Ragland, stepped out on Friday as they arrived at their hotel in Windsor on the eve of the royal wedding.

The mother-daughter duo were greeted on Friday afternoon at five-star Cliveden House Hotel with less than 24 hours to go before Meghan marries Prince Harry inside St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. They're expected to stay at Cliveden House overnight on Friday before heading to the wedding venue together via carriage on Saturday morning.

While walking along a red carpet into the hotel, a photographer asked Meghan how she was feeling.

"Wonderful, thank you," Meghan replied.

Their outing comes hours after the duo, along with Harry, reportedly spent time with Queen Elizabeth over tea at Windsor Castle. They were spotted driving away from Kensington Palace while waving to adoring fans along the way.

Ragland's meeting with the Queen was her first time meeting Her Majesty and came one day after she enjoyed time with Harry's father, Prince Charles, as well as Duchess Camilla, Prince William and Duchess Kate.

Noticeably absent from all of this has been Thomas Markle, who made waves around the world earlier this week after a will-he-won't-he concerning his attendance at the royal wedding. Thomas suffered a heart attack last week that required him to have three stents put in on Wednesday morning, making him unable to travel to England to walk his daughter down the aisle. The palace announced on Friday morning that Prince Charles would walk Meghan down the aisle instead, at her request.

In between his heart attack and heart surgery, Thomas famously staged paparazzi photos that were reportedly sold for six figures. After it was revealed that they had been staged, he said he no longer planned on attending the wedding out of fear that he would embarrass Meghan and the royal family too much. Despite ultimately changing his mind, the scheduled surgery prevented him from attending at all.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will get married on Saturday, May 19, at Windsor Castle.
