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.

The guest list

Although the guest list hasn't officially been released -- and we won't know for sure who made the cut until the big day -- many high-profile figures have hinted whether or not they scored an invite. 

Priyanka Chopra, Serena Williams and David and Victoria Beckham are all expected to attend, alongside Meghan's Suits co-stars Patrick J. Adams and Gabriel Macht. 

Since Harry isn't heir to the throne, they aren't expected to invite anybody on an official capacity. President Trump, Melania Trump and the Obamas are not expected to attend.  

The page boys and bridesmaids 

Just a few days before the big day, Prince Harry and Meghan finally revealed who would be part of their pack of bridesmaids and page boys. As expected, two of Duchess Kate and Prince William's children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, will take part. Other bridesmaids include Harry's goddaughters Florence van Cutsem and Zalie Warren, Meghan's goddaughters Remi and Rylan Litt, as well as Jessica Mulroney's daughter Ivy.

Along with Prince George, page boys include Brian and John Mulroney and Jasper Dyer.

The first dance 

The royal couple has chosen quite an unexpected song for their first dance. According to reports, Harry and Meghan will take the dance floor as man and wife, dancing to Whitney Houston's hit "I Wanna Dance With Somebody.”

The flowers

In a press release from April 1, it was announced that the couple had chosen Philippa Craddock to design their flowers for the church ceremony.

"Where possible, Philippa will use flowers and plants that are in season and blooming naturally in May, including branches of beech, birch and hornbeam, as well as white garden roses, peonies and foxgloves,” the press release said

The cake 

In March, it was announced that Claire Ptak would be the baker behind Meghan and Harry's wedding cake. The elderflower-flavored creation will incorporate the bright flavors of spring, and "be covered with buttercream and decorated with fresh flowers."

Claire's creations were already on Meghan's radar: She interviewed the baker for her lifestyle blog The Tig, which has since been shut down. 

The entrance 

Meghan and Harry will ride in the Ascot Landau, a horse-drawn carriage built in 1883, while departing St. George's chapel following the ceremony. It'll take then through Castle Hill to Windsor Castle. If it rains, they'll have to switch to the Scottish Stage Coach, which was built in 1830 and offers a covering. 

The entertainment

In late April, it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan have hand-selected a number of choirs and musicians to perform on their big day. 

According to US magazine, "The performers are Vivian’s choir; 19-year-old cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason; Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir; an orchestra made up of musicians from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia; Welsh soprano Elin Manahan Thomas; trumpeter David Blackadder; organist Luke Bond; and State Trumpeters from the Band of the Household Cavalry."

The night before

According to reports, Meghan and Harry will spend the night before their wedding apart, in two different lavish hotels in London. 

Meghan will stay with her mother, Doria, at Cliveden House Hotel. Prince Harry will be joined by brother and best man Prince William at Cosworth Park. 

The reception 

Following the service, there will be two receptions. The first will be held at St. George's hall for the guests from the ceremony. The second celebration will be held at Frogmore house for a more select group, including the couple's family and friends. 

The menu

Not only will the receptions be joined by food trucks (!) but the dishes served will include "the freshest produce" sourced from places like Her Majesty's estates. One item on the menu? Seasonal bowls.
