In a little over two months, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will tie the knot in what is bound to be a beautiful spring wedding.

Adoring fans will be delighted to know that Markle has already gone through the bridal shower "ritual."

Now we know the details of what went down at this private affair, and this all sounds beautifully majestic.

Since the November announcement that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged, the world’s delighted obsession with this royal couple has only grown.

Now, E! reports the details of Meghan Markle’s bridal shower. It apparently took place at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire.

Their source reveals:

"Markus Anderson has helped throw the shower for Meghan and a small group of mostly her London friends."

And it sounds like it was the sort of bridal shower that everyone would enjoy.

"It’s just a relaxing day of good food and pampering."

It turns out that you can get treated like a princess, just by being friends with a … future Duchess.

Soho Farmhouse sits on 100 acres of beautiful British countryside.

Oxfordshire is perhaps best known as a place to get a world-class education — at Oxford. But the area’s economy is also heavily impacted by the tourism industry.

This is a place with picturesque rolling hills of grass with sparse, low-lying trees dotting the landscape without obstructing one’s view.

Soho Farmhouse itself is a member’s club where guests can enjoy amenities such as spas, tennis courts, and a movie theater.

(The movie theater is called a cinema because, you know, it’s British)

MegMar had a number of friends in attendance, including Lindsay Jill Roth and Heather Dorak.

There are friends and then there are friends so near and dear that you invite them to your bridal shower and they actually make the journey to attend.

Markle’s mother, Doria Radlan, was not there for the bridal shower.

That’s not so unusual — in some families, half of the attendees are relative. For others, it’s a time to go (reasonably) wild with friends.

Radlan will however be at Meghan Markle’s bachelorette party, which will be more low-key though it won’t be a somber occasion.

There is one very serious even coming up on Markle’s schedule, however.

Meghan Markle with Her Prince

Later this week, Meghan Markle will be baptized and confirmed in the Church of England.

(Her mother will be there for that — and so will her father, Thomas Markle)

This religious event will take place in the Kensington Palace chapel, and be performed by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby.

The history of the Church of England has been intrinsically linked to the monarchy and Royal Family since the Church’s separation from papal authority in 1534 under the "guidance" of King Henry VIII.

For some — even for those girls who dreamt of growing up and marrying their Ginger Prince — a conversion like that would be a deal-breaker.

The fact that Markle is going through with it goes to show exactly how in love she is with Harry.

The royal wedding itself will be open to 2,640 members of the public. The crowd will be the equivalent of a large high school attend the ceremony, which is a wholesome gesture.

Truly, Harry is committed to the idea that the Royal Family belongs to the People.

Despite the racist hate crime perpetrated against Meghan Markle, they know that the majority are happy for them and eager to witness a part of British Royal history.

The wedding itself will take place in St. George’s Chapel. 

A royal wedding in a place named after a man credited with slaying a dragon — that’s about as close to a fairytale wedding as you can get.
