It's a big day for Meghan Markle.

The actress - who hasn't been spotted with Prince Harry since their first public appearance earlier this month, until today - is also rumoured to be spending Christmas Eve at Kate Middleton and William's house with the children.

The 36-year-old was just spotted arriving at the Palace with her boyfriend, Prince Harry, in the driver's seat of a Land Rover, ahead of meeting her future in-laws.

The Californian beauty wore an A-line Self-Portrait 'nightshade' midi dress (the dress is currently sold out but a similar shorter version is available for just £175 on MyTheresa.com) and diamond drop earrings for the occasion, also attended by the likes of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
