Welcome to the family!

Not long after Prince Harry, 33, and Meghan Markle, 36, got married and completed their romantic horse-drawn carriage procession for their subjects, they attended a reception with the Queen!

Harry's grandma Elizabeth II, 92, hosted the daytime lunch taking place shortly after the royal wedding.

The reception at St George's Hall in Windsor Castle featured all 600 of the guests, including Harry's best man, brother Prince William, 35, his wife Duchess Kate Middleton, 36, Prince Charles and his wife Duchess Camilla, George and Amal Clooney, David and Victoria Beckham, Serena Williams, actress Priyanka Chopra, and Meghan's mom, Doria Ragland.

Because Harry's ex-girlfriends Chelsy Davy, 32, and Cressida Bonas, 29, were wedding guests, they, too, were invited to the post-wedding reception lunch.

Davy dated the Prince from 2004 to 2011, while Bonas was Harry's main squeeze from 2014 to 2016. Both stayed friendly with the fun loving royal.

But the two, who have become friends, raised eyebrows as they attended Harry's wedding to another woman.

The reception guests tucked into Harry and Meghan's lemon elderflower wedding cake, which was made by London's Violet Bakery's Claire Ptak.

Charles, who walked the former Suits star down the aisle, Harry, and Meghan were all scheduled to make speeches at the reception, with William taking charge of festivities.

The fabulous food included a selection of hor d'oeuvres, including grilled English asparagus wrapped in cumbrian ham, Scottish langoustines wrapped in smoked salmon with citrus crème fraiche, and heritage tomato and basil tartare with balsamic pearls, according to Kensington palace.

The bride, groom, family, and friends also chowed down on 10-hour slow-roasted Windsor pork belly with apple compote and morel mushrooms and young leeks.

It was the first of two receptions for Harry and his former actress wife.

According to US Weekly, later in the evening, the newlyweds and 200 of their closet family and friends will attend a second, private reception hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.

The night event, sure to feature the couple dancing, will not include Markle's former Suits star castmates Patrick Adams, Gina Toress and Rick Hoffman, according to US Weekly sources.

But they did attend the earlier lunch with the Queen!
