Harry was all smiles as he drove his plus one to the festivities at the Middleton’s Bucklebury Manor in Berkshire, to celebrate the marriage of Pippa and James. Harry had earlier been seen driving away from the afternoon champagne reception (Pippa and James had two parties) at Englefield House, in his dark grey Audi, to collect Meghan for the evening event. The 35-year-old Suits star, who was noticeably absent from the marriage service at St. Mark’s church, and her 32-year-old royal boyfriend reached Carole and Michael Middleton’s estate just in time for the night’s kickoff.

Partygoers stole glances at the pair as they joined everyone in a stunning £100,000 ($130,360) “crystal palace” glass tent on the sprawling family manor. The marquee had been built on their 18-acre grounds solely for the celebration. Harry and Meghan made it just in time to settle in and watch a fantastic flyover display by a World War II Spitfire plane. Reception guests enjoyed the spectacle, with the outing carrying on into the early hours of Sunday. The party was mandated as "adult-only" and saw around 350 guests.

Meghan accompanying Harry to such a high profile affair has left fans marveling about the possibility of wedding bells in the twosome’s future. The appearance was a big move, considering the occasion was the first time the acress joined her royal man at an event with the presence of his brother Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton, as well as their children Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Should Harry and Meghan marry, they may opt for a lower key service than William and Kate. Being second in line to the throne, Harry may choose St. Paul’s Cathedral over the grand Westminster Abbey for his big day. His mother Diana, Princess of Wales got married at St. Paul’s. The Prince was incredibly close to his mom, and marrying his own love at the same church would be a beautiful tribute.
