If you've been feeling a little lost without a royal wedding to look forward to, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are here to cheer you up and put you back in the wedding spirit—if only for a day or two. On Thursday, shortly after their arrival in Tonga for the next stop on their first joint royal tour, the newlyweds stepped out looking like they'd walked straight off the aisle of St. George's Chapel.

Meghan and Harry were dressed to the nines for a private visit with King Tupou VI and Queen Nanasipau'u of the Kingdom of Tonga at the Consular House in Nuku’alofa, according to the BBC. The Duchess of Sussex wore a floor-length, figure-hugging white gown by Theia—a wedding dress label! The frock featured ornate jewels on the shoulders, just above the dress's cap sleeves. She accessorized with a small black clutch purse and black pointy-toed pumps, plus, as Marie Claire points out, the oversized aquamarine ring that once belonged to Princess Diana and which Meghan also wore on her wedding day, further adding to the ensemble's wedding-y vibes.

Harry, meanwhile, looked every bit the royal groom in a black tuxedo. He paired the suit with a white button-down shirt and a black bow tie, and sported a small row of military medals on the left side of his jacket.

The designer behind Meghan's gorgeous gown spoke to People about how excited he was to dress the duchess—and about the adjustments the Theia team made for the mom-to-be. "When her stylist reached out to inquire if I could make a dress for her Australian press tour, I stopped everything we were doing (my bridal show was just a week away) and immediately went to work on Her Royal Highness’ gown," Don O’Neill, the brand's creative director, said in a statement.

Even five months after this dashing royal pair said "I do," they clearly still have the whole royal wedding thing down to a science. Many thanks to Harry and Meghan for this welcome reminder of their May 19 nuptials.
