Queen Elizabeth II held a pre-Christmas luncheon on Wednesday.

Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince George and Princess Charlotte were all in attendance at the royal event held at Buckingham Palace. The attendees were all photographed entering and exiting the holiday luncheon, resulting in some must-see candid pics.

This will be Meghan's first Christmas with the royal family and as Prince Harry drove the duo into Buckingham Palace for the event, the couple was photobombed by a pigeon!

Also at the event on Wednesday, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were spotted in their car with their children. While Kate waved out the window, Princess Charlotte appeared to be a little sleepy.

The royals are all gearing up for the Christmas holiday on Monday. A Kensington Palace spokesman told reporters last week, "You can expect to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle at Sandringham on Christmas Day."

Harry and Meghan announced their engagement at the end of November and are set to tie the knot on May 19 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.
