How’s that for the night before the wedding? Groom of the hour, Prince Harry, spent the final night before his wedding day to Meghan Markle fulfilling royal duties and expressing his gratitude to fans gathered outside of Windsor Castle.

Harry was joined by his big brother, Prince William, as the two royals graciously greeted spectators lined up outside of the castle grounds. “Thank you to the crowds in Windsor for the amazing reception for Prince Harry and his best man The Duke of Cambridge!” the Kensington Palace Twitter account read along with the hashtag, “#RoyalWedding.”

Markle, meanwhile, was photographed walking into the Cliveden House the night before the wedding with her mother, Doria Ragland.

As previously reported, the royal couple will stay in separate hotels the night before the wedding. Harry, 33, and Will will be staying at the Dorchester Collection’s Coworth Park in Windsor. Markle’s hotel, meanwhile, is also a 5-star country house hotel.

The Cliveden House features a luxurious spa and spaces perfect for her pre-wedding routine.
