Queen Elizabeth Meets the Middletons, Kate Goes Shopping

It was originally reported that Queen Elizabeth and her husband, Prince Phillip, wouldn't meet Kate Middleton's family until the day of the wedding. But Michael and Carole Middleton were invited to dine at Windsor Castle for lunch on Wednesday.

A royal source says the lunch had a "warm atmosphere".

Meanwhile, Kate was busy shopping for some possible Honeymoon gear. She was spotted out in London on Tuesday and purchased clothing from Warehouse on King's Road.

Middleton bought three dresses and a blouse, spending almost $350. The woman knows where to get a deal!

A spokesperson for the store told People, "She popped in and had a quick look around with a friend. It was very exciting, and everyone said how lovely and down-to-earth she was."
