Our first glimpse of the bride!

Meghan Markle and her mom, Doria Ragland, were seen arriving St. George's Chapel for the royal wedding.

The mother/daughter pair was seen leaving their hotel on Sunday morning a few minutes behind schedule. They rode in a burgundy Rolls Royce, and we caught a glimpse of Meghan's dress through the window of the car. And yes, we are screaming. So who is the designer of her wedding dress? Clare Keller for GIVENCHY!

Though there's still no word on the designer, Markle's dress appears to be a traditional white, long sleeve style. It appears to be boatneck, and is reminiscent of the simple style that Queen Elizabeth's sister, Princess Margaret, wore to her 1960 wedding to Anthony ’Tony’ Armstrong-Jones. At the time, Margaret's gown was described as "the simplest royal wedding gown in history." Meghan has notably said that she didn't wan't to upstage Kate Middleton's dress, so perhaps she's working to steal this title (though we can already tell she looks endlessly chic in her pursuit).

Meghan's hair appeared to be up in a take on her usual messy bun, and her veil looked so large it took up a significant portion of the back seat. Her face was mostly obscured, but there was some sort of headpiece on top of the tulle. She appears to be wearing her tiara a bit farther back than the traditional style. Might it be Queen Mary Sapphire Bandeau tiara. Hmm...

Doria Ragland, who will be watching Prince Charles walk Meghan down the aisle, appeared to be wearing a white morning suit with a matching pillbox hat. Both ladies looked absolutely stunning, and we can't wait to see them arrive at the church!
