They’re back! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have returned to their wedding venue—but they weren’t the ones to take center stage on Friday, October 12. The Duke and the Duchess of Sussex attended the wedding of Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie, at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

For the occasion, international style icon Markle wore a navy piece with a matching fascinator. Harry stepped out in a morning suit in the color black with a top hat. They were joined by Kate Middleton, in a brilliant deep pink dress, and Prince William.

The spouses grinned and happily made their way into the venue ahead of Eugenie’s arrival as the wedding commences at 11:00 a.m. local time (6:00 a.m. ET).

St. George’s Chapel appeared vastly different in style from Harry and Meghan’s May nuptials with the historic location dressed in bright jewel-colored florals and brilliant green trees.

Meghan and Harry, meanwhile, went with a huge display and installation at the entrance comprised of fresh greenery and white roses and peonies.

On Friday, guests were promptly seated inside the venue at 10:15 a.m. For the next hour and 45 minutes, they were unable to use their phones, explore social media or even use the bathrooms inside the chapel due to stringent rules imposed upon guests.

However, the couple will graciously be hosting a full wedding weekend for their inner circle of family members and friends, beginning with the Queen’s reception. The luncheon will then be followed by an evening reception at the Royal Lodge.

On Saturday, the couple will welcome their guests on the grounds of Windsor for a festival style event that includes drinks, games and outdoor food stalls. Markle and Harry are not expected to attend that portion due to their upcoming 16-day tour that commences early next week.
