Princess-to-be Kate Middleton, along with her parents, sister Pippa, brother James and a few close friends enjoyed a sumptuous meal at the Goring Hotel Thursday night.

The menu? Smoked Salmon Blinis, followed by Chateaubriand Steak and seasonal vegetables. A source tells Us Weekly Middleton and guests sipped on Lapostolle Casa Sauvignon Blanc, a reasonably priced white wine that goes for around £6 per bottle.

Prince William, 28, and Middleton, 29, parted from each other before dusk on their wedding eve. A source told Us: "It's royal tradition for the bride and groom to not see each other after dusk, so before they will give each other a kiss [on Thursday before dusk] and then part. They won't see each other again until the altar on Friday. This is also what Charles and Diana did."

William asked Prince Harry, 26, to spend the night at their father's official home, Clarence House. A source told Us: "It'll be great for the two brothers to be together before the big day. I'm sure Harry can help William with any last minute nerves."

The duo has already practiced their balcony kiss and rehearsed the minute-by-minute wedding procession. Still, the Dean of Westminister, who will perform the couple's ceremony, told Us: "Who wouldn't be nervous?"
